He may not win this tournament, but Brock Mosley has definitely had the most interesting, fun-filled week. The fun factor got cranked up at 11:30 when Mosley put a 5-pound, 14-ounce largemouth bass in the boat. He culled a 1 1/2-pounder with it and was ecstatic. A 4-pound upgrade will do that.
Of course, Mosley's excitement began on Wednesday, when his wife gave birth to their second daughter back home in Collinsville, Miss. Mosley has taken the unusual route of concentrating on largemouth bass this week, and he's been just a short distance from the takeoff dock at French Creek Marina. In addition to being in strong contention for making Sunday's top 10, Mosley is catching more fish than anybody. He's got 10 so far today.
But that 5-14 sent his mood up into another level. He's catching the largemouth in shallow water on a bladed jig.
