California pro Brent Ehrler took the lead Wednesday in the race for Toyota Big Bass of the week with a largemouth that weighed 9 pounds, 1 ounce.
If that fish holds up, he'll take home a new Toyota Tundra pickup truck valued at $50,000 — and it won't be the first time he's won a Tundra in Texas.
Ehrler took home a similar prize when he won the Texas Toyota Bass Class on Lake Fork in 2015. His big fish that year weighed 10-11.
"I won the tournament and caught the big fish on the final day," Ehrler said. "I have a Tundra sitting at my house right now that I won in that tournament."
At the rate 7- and 8-pound fish are being caught this week, it's far too early to call the race for Toyota Big Bass.
