After an hour and a half fog delay followed by a 50-minute run, Jake Whitaker has arrived at his starting spot in Lake Tellico.
He entered Championship Sunday in fifth place with a three-day total of 34 pounds, 11 ounces.
Whitaker said most of his fish yesterday were in two feet of water or less. The North Carolina native is fishing secondary points in the creeks and is currently fishing a bridge.
He has landed three non-keepers so far, two of them on back-to-back cast off the bridge. The area he is fishing has a lot of baitfish activity near the surface as well.
