I started my morning with Brandon Lester who was sitting in 5th place after Day 2 with 26-11. Within his first hour of fishing time, Lester boated his first keeper.
Lester is fishing extremely slow, picking apart every piece of cover thoroughly. The area that Lester started the day in is a narrow creek just off of the French Broad River which has received a tremendous amount of pressure throughout the week.
There has been some concern that the guys at the top of the leaderboard after day two may not be able to get to their best areas due to the dropping water levels, but Lester’s key areas will be less effected by the falling water.
