Arey making a top 10 push

Matt Arey had his family and friends concerned yesterday. Or, more accurately, BASSTrakk had them concerned, after it showed Arey with no fish all day long. It may have been a cell service problem. Whatever, Arey came to the scales with 21-6 to move up from 31st place on Day 1 to 13th.

And the Shelby, N.C., pro is making a bid to make the top 10 cut today. This one will help - a 4-13 caught at 3:23. It gives Arey 17-9 on the day, unofficially, and has him in 12th place.
