Fishing for Saturday

On Saturday the tournament field is cut to the top 50 anglers, with the remainder having fished their last day of the 2018 Elite Series season. 

Everyone wants to fish and some anglers need it more than others. Here are a few notable names. 

Mike McClelland, currently 56th in the points, is fishing on the strength of his current fifth-place showing in the BASSTrakk standings. The points will be updated after today’s weigh-in, and McClelland will certainly move up closer to the bubble. Another day could put him in contention to qualify for the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship. 

Same for Brandon Lester, 53rd in the points, leading the tournament according to BASSTrakk. The long shot is David Walker, 76th in points and just behind Lester in the tournament. 

Everyone has a goal for today and for most, including all of the above, just making it to Saturday is universal on the priority list.
