Jordan Lee's hot spot

This was posted early this morning in a blog post about both Jordan Lee and Jacob Powroznik. Based on Lee's big day, it bears repeating, with some additions. Lee weighed the biggest bag of Day 2 ­– 21 pounds even – with only four fish, which included a 7-pound, 7-ounce bass.

 “I found this spot on the last day of practice,” Lee said. “I knew there was something special about it. I had two really big ones on two casts with a (Strike King) 5XD, a 6- (pounder) and a 7-(pounder). But (Friday) was so cloudy and windy, those fish never got there. I fished it three times and never caught a fish off of it.”

 Lee weighed only three small ones on Day 1 to finish in 37th place with 8-6.

 “I was running options (Saturday) and decided to hit it one more time at noon,” he said. “My first one was that 7-pounder, and it had a whole school of 5- to 7-pounders with it. I caught a 6 and a 5 in the next 15 minutes."

But Lee didn't catch another one there. His fourth fish came from a spot he hit on the way to check-in.

 “There are giants there," he said of his best spot. "I’ve never seen anything like it. The size is just unbelievable. There aren’t any small ones.”

It's an educated guess that Lee went back to this spot today - apparently with great success.

"I told my friends before the tournament started that I had one spot, and that's it," Lee said. "I think the cloudy, windy weather messed me up the first day. I was basing my whole tournament on that. These are post-spawn fish that are moving out."
