Jay Yelas has been having a strong day from the start this morning. It just got stronger. The longtime pro angler from Lincoln City, Ore., landed this 5-pounder on a drop shot rig at 1:27 p.m. (I wonder what happened to this fish's pectoral fin?)
The 2002 Bassmaster Classic champion is one of only three anglers with 21 pounds now, according to BASSTrakk, which currently shows Yelas in fourth place. Yelas started the day in 15th.
