Walters with a limit

Patrick Walters of South Carolina is fishing his first Top 12 on the Bassmaster Opens trail this week at Oneida Lake. The College Series product has blasted them the last couple years and has taken home a few wins.

If you remember, just this year he and partner Tyler All won the Southern Regional on Winyah Bay. They busted the biggest bag of the event on the final day and won by 9 pounds.

Walters is looking for a 7+ like he had to anchor that bag. Right now he has a limit worth roughly 12 pounds.

"I'm going to need to do some culling, that's for sure," Walters said.

He started the day tied for 8th overall with 34-15.
