Missouri State with a good bag on Day 2

After catching 11-2 and landing in 66th on Day 1, the Missouri State team of Hunter McClasky and Mac Johnson-Herzberg have a bigger bag than they did yesterday.

With the wind blowing, the duo used a morning flurry to fill their limit. They have made an adjustment as well, focusing on deeper brush and points.

As the wind has died down, the bite has slowed. McClasky and Johnson-Herzberg have used Garmin Livescope to chase the bass and the bait.

The bait is in about 10 feet of water suspended while the bass are hunkered down in 20 feet of water, occasionally rising up to take a swipe at the baitfish.

Cold start to Championship Saturday

After warm, sunny conditions to start the first day of the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series presented by Bass Pro Shops at Lake Hartwell, Championship Saturday has brought a different set of conditions.

Clouds, wind and chilly temperatures have spread over the area.

That hasn’t stopped Colton Parrott and Trevor Topken from getting a quick start. The duo from the state of South Carolina have caught four fish so far, including a 4-pound largemouth.

Fishing brush off the edge of a point, the duo has caught two spots in the last half hour and are looking to fill out their limit. On Day 1, they said they lost several fish that would have helped but have fished clean so far today.

After catching four bass for 6-0 on Day 1 that landed them in 216th, Parrott and Topken are looking to make a jump up the leaderboard on the final day.
