Shryock with a limit

Hunter Shryock was elated with his Day 1 performance of 14-4, which had him in seventh overall. His strategy and motivation for this event is solely aimed at the GEICO Bassmaster Classic.

With a stumble at Oneida Lake his points contention for an Elite invite went to the wayside. He is in very good position on top of the Southern Open points race with Smith Lake left.

His goal is always to win, but even more so this week at Douglas Lake. He's one of the few fiberglass boats to make a run into skinnier water and he is making it work so far.

He landed his third, fourth and fifth keepers since I've watched him and all seem to be more on the quality side compared to just normal keeper. One of those went roughly 3-plus or so pounds and the others aren't far off that weight too. Add in a slight cull and he is rolling right now.

He and his co-angler just doubled up in a major way.

Shryock has all but punched his ticket to another Championship Saturday in the Bassmaster Opens.
