Depending upon the accuracy of BASSTrakk, the anglers whose afternoon bites are strongest are contenders for the first Bassmaster Elite Series title of the year.
Those anglers are Jacob Wheeler and Jamie Hartman, who is upgrading with every bass caught. Wheeler made a key move late this morning that has proven pivotal. The action for both anglers is heating up. Meanwhile it's cooled off for Jesse Wiggins, the leader both days and early choice to win.
With a couple hours remaining much can change, the weather included, although it's becoming less of a factor. If there is an edge to be factored into the leaderboard it's pre-fishing time. Wheeler and Hartman both spent considerable time learning the lake. In Hartman's case, his time was spent graphing while tapping into his deepwater expertise after the tournament began.
