Chris Zaldain ran straight to the same spot that produced two big largemouths yesterday morning. And the ledge has produced an early bite again.
He switched from dragging a plastic to deep cranking to slow-rolling rolling a bait, and he was hooked up five minutes into his fishing day.
The largemouth wasn’t a giant - about 3 pounds - but the fish broke the ice.
BASSTrakk has him at a total of 49 pounds, just 2-1 behind current leader Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson.
