There were 23 anglers who weighed 15 pounds, 1 ounce or more on Day 1. With a 5-bass limit, that's, obviously, a 3-pound average per bass. Leader Jeff Gustafson's 19-2 total came close to a 4-pound average.
That's something to keep in mind if you're following the BASSTrakk Twitter feed - the number of 3-pounds-plus fish. They will determine the order of the standings at the end of the day.
Chris Zaldain is the man to keep your eye on. He's got three bass in the boat. They're conservatively estimated at 10 pounds, including a 4 1/4-pounder. Zaldain has laid the foundation for a big day.
