Leaderboard shuffle

We all want to know if today will be a repeat of Thursday with the phenomenal catches of smallmouth that crossed the scales. In the meantime, the BASSTrakk standings indicate otherwise. 

“We leaned on them pretty heavy during practice and then today.” David Walker told me that yesterday at the weigh-in. “The catches might drop some tomorrow.”

So far that is correct. By this time yesterday the Top 10 on the scoreboard had 20 pounds in their livewells. Today only four anglers have hit the 20-pound mark, according to BASSTrakk. 

And there are just five of the Top 12 from Thursday currently inside that mark. Those anglers are David Walker, holding second, Scott Rook, James Elam, Jesse Wiggins and Brandon Lester.
