Menendez looking for upgrades now

Mark Menendez has a limit in the boat, weighing an estimated 15-10, which has him in 5th place at 11:25 a.m. It's a confidence-builder and a solid foundation for a big day. The afternoon bite was particularly good on Day 1. It put a smile on several long-faced anglers who had struggled for hours. Based on what he's caught this morning, Menendez has a chance to make this a special day.
