Just got word from Steve Bowman, who is on the water following Edwin Evers today. He said his first largemouth keeper of the day was around 3 pounds, maybe even 3 1/4. Then his second fish of the day, the smallmouth on the frog, was probably 3 1/2 pounds. With that being said, Evers is certainly in contention today with two fish for 6 1/2 pounds right now.
Unofficially he is in second place and just roughly 12 ounces behind Justin Lucas. Evers has been around quality this morning, but he hasn't been able to connect and get them in the boat. Some have chased his bait, but the quality of fish is certainly in his area right now.
