Frustrating start

Adding to what has certainly been a frustrating start of the final day of the Bassmaster Elite Series, Louisiana’s Gerald Spohrer lost the first fish of the day when his rod shattered in the hookset. 

Spohrer missed three bites in a row after rerigging while working a frog around standing grass. 
But he just sunk the hooks in a keeper, so he’s broken the ice. 
This is Spohrer’s second-year Elite angler fishing his second Top 12, and he went into the day just 10 ounces behind leader Randall Tharp.
