Gerald Swindle just put a 6-13 in the boat, putting him back in third where he started the morning and leaving him a mere ounce from the century mark, with 99-15. He’s got a 2-8 in his bag, so he’s likely going to crack 100 if he can just get another bite here on Fork.
But he’s also only 3-10 from the lead, so another like he just caught would actually catapult him ahead of both Palaniuk and Livesay. All of a sudden, he’s a serious threat to win this thing again.
With just over 2 hours left to fish, it’s anyone’s ballgame looking at the top 3. A 6- pounder caught by any of them could do it.
