Limits are where it's at

This early in an Elite season, there are usually a couple of dozen anglers who have limited each day they’ve been on the water. In 2013, though, there was the Sabine River, where a limit was rare. Even Falcon Lake challenged a few anglers. Now, after two days at Bull Shoals, where limits are pretty easy to come by despite the wicked cold front that greeted competitors on the first day, just two anglers have limited each day they’ve fished: Bill Lowen and Ish Monroe.


Lowen failed to make the cut, so his streak is safe going into the next Elite event. Monroe is right in the thick of things here, so his streak is in jeopardy for another day.


They have the two longest current streaks in the Elites. Lowen is at eight. Monroe is at nine and counting. These are baby streaks. The record is 57 straight by Kevin VanDam.
