Yesterday, Kentucky boater Matthew Robertson lamented his lack of big bites. Catching 19-14 on Day 1 and 17-8 on Day 2 sent him to today’s Championship round in third place in the TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation Southeastern Regional on Lake Okeechobee, but he knew he needed to find the big bag today if he’s to have a shot at winning.
Robertson may have just put himself in contention with a Day 3 bag that weighed 22-8 and pushed his tournament total to 59-14.
“I said ‘If Okeechobee didn’t show out I was going to talk bad about her,” Robertson joked.
Apparently, Florida’s largest lake was listening.
