Paquette first to 15 pounds today

Twenty-four-year-old Elite Series rookie Garrett Paquette was the first angler to top 15 pounds today. He did it quickly, with his five keepers coming within the 10 o'clock hour.

The Canton, Mich., pro has a 4-4 and a 4-0 in his 15-pound, 15-ounce limit. He started the day in 38th place, but he's already got the weight to easily make the top 35 cut after today's weigh-in.
