Ed Loughran III has about 18 pounds in the boat, and he’s fishing relaxed.
“It’s been good,” he said. “I caught them in about two hours, fishing deep.”
But he said he’ll probably spend the rest of his day focusing on largemouth in hopes of upgrading.
“I’ve got a couple of 2 1/4-pound fish of like to get rid of,” Loughran said. “If I don’t have 22 1/2 pounds I don’t think I stand a chance.”
