Combs receiving his request

Keith Combs had some big days in practice earlier this week when the cloud ceiling was low and dark. Even though he hasn't gotten much of that in the previous three days of this tournament, those conditions haven't left his mind.

 After dropping from third place to fourth at Saturday's weigh-in, Combs made a request, saying, "It takes dark skies. If we have dark skies, I should catch a big bag. Give me some dark skies."

It appears to be a case of ask and you shall receive. The skies are dark now and forecast to stay that way all day. So far, Combs hasn't taken advantage - with two bass weighing a total of 4-9. But don't count him out.
