Bethel heating up

After a slow start, Tristan McCormick and Stevie Mills of Bethel University have turned it up a notch. Each drift the Day 1 leaders make, they upgrade with a solid fish.

The biggest difference from this morning is the presence of sunlight.

“I think once the sun gets up, it positions them better behind the boulders,” McCormick said after boating their biggest fish of the morning.

The Bethel team has roughly 15 pounds right now but still have one small fish that’s under 2 pounds in the livewell.
