Herren tops 100 pounds

Matt Herren's hands were scraped up yesterday after he culled an estimated 14 four-pounders while compiling his fifth-place total of 23-14. They've got to be a bloody mess today. Herren has caught 32 bass weighing 116-9 pounds in culling up to 22-2 on the day.

Because B.A.S.S. is cooperating with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources on a study, every fish caught in this tournament is being recorded on BASSTrakk. Hence, you're seeing some crazy, but accurate totals.

By contrast, unofficial tournament leader Seth Feider has caught only seven bass today, but his best five weigh 23-2.
