After a slow morning, the Murray State University team of Adam Puckett and Brendan Bingham has filled their limit. The seniors will have to make some serious upgrades if they plan on making a run at winning or even staying in the cut for the Classic Bracket.
Right now they’ve got about 10 pounds in the boat, but they’re actually ahead of schedule compared to the last two days. Puckett and Bingham haven’t had a limit before 10:30 the previous two days of competition.
“It’s really been the opposite of our practice,” Puckett said. “We had better mornings in practice but better afternoons in the tournament which is kind of spooky.”
The second-place team is planning to rotate through two or three areas the rest of the day.
