After weighing in his 25th-place limit of 15-3 yesterday, Caleb Sumrall was asked if he’d caught a lot of fish. The 31-year-old Elite Series rookie from New Iberia, La., simply held up his thumb. Enough said. Sumrall sported a “good case” of bass thumb as a result of landing a few dozen.
“I culled a 13-pound limit and another 12-pound limit,” Sumrall said.
The rising water level has apparently thrown Sumrall a curve today. He’s dropped into 36th place with a limit weighing 11-3. He’s only culled once, according to BASSTrakk, and Sumrall’s thumb is surely grateful. If Sumrall can hang on, he’ll make the second Top 50 cut of his career.
