Jones with a limit

Alton Jones, Jr. now has a limit. Moments after James Overstreet snapped this photo he added a fifth bass to the livewell at exactly 9 a.m.

Every pound and ounce will matter today.

There is a lot of company at the top. Going into today he held a 2-ounce lead, with only 1 pound of weight separating the top 5 anglers.

“My areas get better later in the day,” announced Jones.

That could be the best news of the day for Jones. Yesterday his biggest bass came around midday.
