At 11:20 a.m., the BASSTrakk standings provided a good example. One pound exactly separated 12th place Bobby Lane (38-12) and 20th place Aaron Martens (37-12). And at the top of the leaderboard, Seth Feider leads Jordan Lee by 2 ounces and Ott Defoe by 8 ounces.
It's no surprise that many spots in the standings are separated by ounces. That's always the way it is here on the Mississippi River, where the bass are plentiful but "game-changers" are rare.
