A 6-pounder won't play for Big Bass this week

With all of the monsters caught during the Bassmaster Elite Series season opener on the St. Johns River, 6-pounders weren't even turning heads by the final day.

We seem to be headed in that direction for the second time in five events.

We're only four hours into Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest Benefiting Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on Lake Fork, and the Top 5 largest bass caught have all weighed 7 pounds or more. Chad Pipkens, Brandon Cobb, Carl Jocumsen and Chris Zaldain have all caught bass that pushed the scales to 7 or better.

Zaldain has two in the 7-pound category — a 7-4 and a 7-6 — which is the biggest reason he's currently leading the event with a five-bass total of 30-10.

Considering we're on Lake Fork, the question is...Will a 7-pounder still be a head-turner by tournament's end?
