Buddy Gross makes big cull

Buddy Gross has had a tough day, especially when compared to Day 1 when he caught the 2nd-place bag of 21 pounds, 2 ounces. But he's not done. Gross just made a 2-pound cull with a 4-10 largemouth at 1:48 p.m. that vaulted him from 22nd place to 7th in the BASSTrakk standings.

It's a testament to how close the standings are and how much difference a 4-pound bass can make in everyone's place in the pecking order. There's a logjam at the 36-pound mark. Gross is one of seven anglers showing 36 pounds on BASSTrakk now.
