Bassmaster Elite Series rookie and B.A.S.S. Nation national champion Caleb Sumrall has two fish in the boat so far this morning. He was discouraged with how the bite changed from just yesterday morning to today and how the fish were reacting to his bait. He adapted though and has put two in the box.
Although his Elite season is over this year, he still has a lot up for grabs and two chances to make it happen. Sumrall is still vying for a Bassmaster Classic berth, and he sits third in the Central Opens points race, which has him in position for a Classic berth.
He has to survive this week at Logan Martin and if so he will make it to Table Rock for the Open Championship. He has a 35-point lead over the 10th spot, but only 11 points over eighth. A solid fish here will keep him in contention in points. His other chance is at the Bass Nation National Championship where he will try to defend his crown. The top three anglers at that event make the Classic.
