Blaylock climbing the leaderboard

Stetson Blaylock ended a bit of a lull with a 3-pound, 12-ounce bass at 12:20, and it vaulted him right into the mix near the top of the leaderboard. BASSTrakk shows him in fourth place at 12:30 with 14-7 today.

This is Blaylock's first Bassmaster Classic, and he's enjoying every minute of it. Blaylock has worked the Classic expo many times, but he never came to a weigh-in as a spectator. He said yesterday, after going through his first Classic weigh-in, that he was grateful he chose to do it this way.
