There were four lead changes in the first 45 minutes today. First Brandon Palaniuk knocked Jamie Hartman from the lead with two bass that weighed a total of five pounds. Then Jason Williamson surged into first with three bass weighing 9 pounds. But Seth Feider has roared back into the lead with three smallmouth bass, the final one being an estimated 4 3/4-pounder.
"We might be having a party today," Feider exclaimed after boating the last one. "There's magic in the air. It's happening today. I'm shaking."
