The brothers Vandagriff

The brotherly team of Matthew and Samuel Vandagriff of Warren County started the final day in 3rd place and was just 5 pounds or so behind the leaders, which is a certainly doable for a comeback. 
They only have two fish in the boat, but they are good ones and have them around the 9-pound mark at the moment. 
They have been froggin' and flippin' some of the shallow main lake cover. Word from the water is that they started back in a creek and lost a few fish on a Zara Spook topwater this morning. They are plugging away at the moment and are looking for 3 more. 

Follow the leaders

We found Ean Davis and Grayson Hanson of Pell City, the Day 2 leaders of the Costa Bassmaster High School Series National Championship. 
After a solid start to their tournament on Thursday, the duo busted 21-12 and jumped out to a 3-pound lead. The Alabama anglers used topwater to load the boat on Saturday. They resorted to hollow body frogs and even a Whopper Plopper to vault into the lead. 
So far on the final day they have 3 fish for 6 to 7 pounds

Mapping out the top 12

The Top 12 high school teams punched their ticket to the final day after two days on Kentucky Lake. The teams are hoping their patterns hold out and they can rise up the leaderboard and maybe even win. Kentucky Lake is unique because anglers can do so many things here and finding your favorite way to fish isn't too hard. There are shallow teams and deep duos ranging from numerous states. 
The top 2 teams are from the state of Alabama while third place is from this very state of Tennessee. The rest of the top 12 ranges from a variety of states like Colorado, Ohio, South Carolina, Illinoiis, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina and Kansas.
With 10 states represented in the Top 12 it speaks volumes to the specific anglers and their skills and it also shows how many diverse skill sets can make it work

Richardson and McKinney set up camp

I'm watching two High School All-Americans at work. Dailus Richardson and Trevor McKinney of Benton, I'll., are camped on the same ledge spot that propelled them to the championship round today. They have four bass worth 9 or 10 pounds, they say.

Current is key where they're fishing, and the flow this morning is light to non-existent. If it picks up later, fishing should get better too.

Lakeside lands a lunker

From spot to spot

Alex Rigg and Josh Austin have bounced back and forth between spots today looking to improve on their tough day yesterday. Their latest move yielded a 4-pounder, their second keeper of the day.
