Austin Felix is leading now

Austin Felix caught a bass just before 2 p.m. that he didn’t think would help him, but he went to his digital scales just to make sure. After going through his livewells, weighing every bass, Felix determined he’s got 16-8 today, rather than the 13-14 it has been showing on BASSTrakk.

Now that’s not unusual, for BASSTrakk and an angler’s actual weight to be different, as angler’s frequently estimate their BASSTrakk entries. But now we know for relative certainty that Felix is leading this tournament at 2 p.m. The key words there are “relative certainly.”
