Davis fishing to close the deal

Mark Davis has said since Day 1 that he needs 16 pounds each day to win this tournament. That includes today. He just switched to a totally new tactic.

Davis is fishing along a line of vegetation using a Strike King flipping bait. The object, obviously, is picking off a single quality bass.

“I’m fishing for a five-pounder to win the tournament,” he said.

That is a wise strategy at this point in the game. BASSTrakk shows Davis with 60-8 and Kevin VanDam with 59-3.
