Kennedy, Christie having productive mornings

We’ve caught up with Jason Christie, who is throwing a spinnerbait around rocks and lay downs. The steep rip rap bank has produced his fifth keeper of the day as well as a non-keeper bite.

Christie said he lost a big one as well. BassTrakk currently has the Oklahoma native in 7th place with 8-0. 

Meanwhile across the bay, Steve Kennedy is having himself a day. He has landed a 6 pound, 3 ounce bass and has jumped to second according to BassTrakk. His estimated Day 3 total is 18-0. 

Kennedy said he caught the big fish on a chatterbait in the area he is in now and feels there is another big one around the cover he is fishing now. He also caught his fifth keeper. 

After Day 1, Kennedy said dirty water the key to his bite and this creek has it. The Auburn native fell to 19th on Day 2 after ending Day 1 in second. 

Light rain has started to fall over this section of the Tennessee River, but overall the day has seen considerably less rain than on Day 2.
