Snowden lands a smallmouth beast

Greg Snowden is keeping himself in contention for the title. And he just helped his cause in a big way with a 5-pound, 12-ounce smallmouth at 2:01 p.m.

The Reeds Spring, Mo., veteran Elite Series angler entered the day in seventh place after bagging 22-1. He's got a chance for an even better day today. He's got another 5-pounder in the livewell, and his other keepers are 3-0, 3-3 and 3-4.
