Latimer lands a big one

Brian Latimer was just out of check range on Day 1 as he was mixed in with the 9-pound bags in 51st place. He only had two fish in the box when I arrived, but hooked up with a third keeper pretty quick, which was his biggest of the day thus far.

He mentioned the stretch of bank was good to him on Thursday and hoped to catch a few more. His co-angler Jeremy Moye hooked up and landed a nice one from the back of the boat.

Moments later, Latimer struck gold with a 5+ pounder. His fourth keeper was a game changer and has him definitley in the check range and now has him one bite from possibly getting a Top 20 or even better a Top 12.
