Limit not required ... but it helps

Since only eight anglers have limited both days on the Sabine River, there's a pretty good chance that someone who hasn't limited will be in the hunt to win on Sunday. It's happened before.


Three times in Elite history the winner did not limit every day. One winner failed to catch a limit on two of the competition days.


In 2006, Kelly Jordon won at the Potomac River after failing to limit on Day 3. Casey Ashley won at Smith Mountain in 2007 despite not catching a limit on the final day. And in 2010 at the California Delta, John Crews won yet failed to catch a limit on either the first or third day. So, it can happen, but it's rare.
