Tacoronte tops 20 already

Jesse Tacoronte has demonstrated just how quickly your fortunes can change at Lake Okeechobee. Tacoronte's already got an estimated 21-8 on four bass, and one of those is a 1-pounder.

The 49-year-old, Orlando, Fla., resident is an Elite Series rookie, but he's an Okeechobee veteran. Tacoronte almost earned a spot in the 2013 Classic when he finished second to Chad Morgenthaler at the Classic Wild Card Event on Okeechobee.

Tacoronte's bag today includes an 8-pounder, an 8-8, a 4-0 and that 1-pounder. He's got a lot potential in the livewell and plenty of time to post the second 30-pound bag this week. He needs it. Tacoronte started the day in 78th place with 10-12 on Day 1.
