Hamilton lands a 4-pounder

Skylar Hamilton has the big bass of the day so far on the Sabine River at the 10 o’clock hour. This 4-pounder is one of those fish that can keep you in the thick of things. If nothing else, it will have Hamilton in the hunt to make the Day 2 cut. If Hamilton can build on it, it will be the key to one of those 12- to 14-pound limits that will put him near the top of the leaderboard at the end of the day. He had 4 keepers totaling 7-10 at 10 a.m., which has him in 5th place on BassTrakk.
