Cherry checks in early with a good bag

Hank Cherry was boat No. 3 at takeoff this morning, with a check-in time of 3 p.m. But Cherry didn't need those last 40 minutes. He came to the backstage tanks with five alive and they're all good size at 2:20 p.m.

BASSTrakk shows Cherry with 18 pounds, 11 ounces. It appears he's got every bit of that.
