The radar shows that the worst of the storm will pass soon. I suspect the pros will get the go sign soon. Whoops! There's more lightning. Maybe not so soon after all.
Ish Monroe is in 50th place after Day 1 with 12-2. Many of the pros are bunched around the 12-pound mark.
The difference between making the top 50 cut and going home early will likely be one kicker bass of 4 pounds or more. Kicker bass were scarce for most of the pros yesterday.
Those who solve the kicker bass riddle will live to fish another day.
