Jamie Hartman just moved into second place with 4 keepers weighing 9 pounds, 8 ounces. That puts him in good shape to be fishing Championship Monday.
Hartman discovered mechanical issues with his Mercury outboard upon arrival to his spot. It’s good enough, obviously, to keep him in place. There is no need to run elsewhere. That’s good news. More good news is that Jay Anderson with Mercury Marine is on the way to make the repairs.
Once again, you’ve got to appreciate the behind-scenes work the service crews perform for the anglers. Hartman only needs one more keeper to make it a limit. My guess is Anderson will be on stand by until that fish comes aboard. We’ll find out what’s next. Stay tuned.
