Less rain than expected

The storm front that roared over Ross Barnett Reservoir today left little of the predicted rainfall. So for all the worries about rising rivers and additional muddy water, Monday the lake may look much like the Top 12 anglers left it on Saturday.

"Surprisingly, we got only about an inch or so across the basin, not the two to four inches that was predicted," said John Sigman, the general manager for Ross Barnett Reservoir. "It won't impact our operation of the lake. We've been trying to hold the lake level stable all week, and it looks like we're going to be able to do that a couple more days."

Rather than formulating Plan B, it seems the Top 12 anglers will be able to stick with Plan A, the one that got them to Day 4 of the tournament.
