In the War Room this morning, BASSTrakk manager Ryan Watkins figured up the following stats based on BASSTrakk data:
Between 8 and 9 a.m. ET, nine keepers were reported for a total of 16.02 pounds.
Between 9 and 10, 45 keepers were reported for 105.03 pounds.
And between 10 and 11, 71 keepers were reported for 151 pounds.
That shows a spike in the larger fish between 9 and 10. The average weight per bass went from 1.78 pounds in the first hour, jumped up to 2.33, and has since come back down to 2.13.
For reference, the average weight of the bass weighed in during this tournament is 2.59 pounds.
