And they're off - Day 3 at Lake Norman

For the third day in a row, there's a weather change in the air at Lake Norman. The conditions at the 7 a.m. start are predicted to stay the same all day long: 59 degrees, clear skies, 8- to 10-mph wind out of the northwest, and gusting higher.


That wind may pick up a bit and shift more to the north during the day. But the temperature is predicted to be the same - all day long - before this cold front plunges temps into the 30s tonight.


Some bigger bags and bigger bass, like Jordan Lee's 5-pound, 14-ounce largemouth, were weighed yesterday. There's a feeling that this final day might be wide open, even though one of the best anglers on Lake Norman - David Williams - has held the lead for two days.
