It is tight at the top of the BASSTrakk leaderboard right now. Jonathon VanDam is leading. Mark Menendez is just 7 ounces back. Kevin VanDam is 9 ounces back from the leader. Dustin Connell is 12 ounces back, and he only has three fish. And Bobby Lane is 1 pound and an ounce back. Of course these are all estimates.
Several fans are asking, what happens if we have a tie at the top? According to rule C21 for the Bassmaster Elite Series, "In case of a tie for first place weight at the end of the tournament, there will be a fish-off between the tied competitors under the direction and special rules established by tournament officials."
We've already had a day postponed by a big storm. This tournament would hit legendary status if we also have a fish-off. Stay tuned!
