Menendez getting started

Kentucky veteran pro Mark Menendez is starting off Day 3 knowing that he needs 20 pounds to stay in the hunt. 

Unlike most of the other competitors, he is slowly and methodically picking apart a dock, whereas most others were sightfishing yesterday. The difference is, he said, his pattern should remain consistent today with the stronger winds and cooler temps.

The anglers who were sight fishing need much calmer waters to be effective. Menendez believes he can still catch them in the same way he did yesterday, even with the changing conditions. 

Time will tell.
