Timing is everything

I followed Caleb Sumrall all morning long, and photographed him catching numbers of bass. But only one small keeper. Finally making the decision to pull off and work up the photo gallery (which will be live soon), I had a feeling I would miss something.

And I did. Five minutes after leaving him, Sumrall boated a 3-pounder.

It was a key bite in a tournament that is really testing the top anglers in the world. That 3-pounder moved him into third place on BASSTrakk with a two-day total of 18-5. His daily weight is 3-12, and to show how important every ounce is this week, if he hadn’t caught that squeaker early, he would be in fifth.

Currently, Kyle Monti is in possession of the lead with 22-15, and Carl Jocumsen is in second with 18-7.
