Brock Mosley has held the lead of the Folds of Honor Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River since early on Day 2. His one-two punch of fishing a popper (and spinnerbait today) in Orange in the morning and flipping a soft plastic in Taylor’s later in the day has Mosley just two hours from his first blue trophy, likely needing one more solid bite to seal the deal.
Clark Wendlandt has primarily flipped his way through all four days to find himself in second place currently on BassTrakk. He also mentioned catching a few fish early on Day 1 on a spinnerbait, and then used the same bait again to boat a few key fish early today.
Matty Wong lingers in third, catching almost all his fish (including his Day 2 VMC Monster Bag of 13-3) milking the same small stretch of the Sabine where Mosley has started each day. Wong has relied heavily on a popper, squarebill and spinnerbait.
Hunter Shryock has burnt less than $12 of gas all week, based on his own estimates. He has caught almost everything he’s weighed flipping a soft plastic around dock pilings within a mile of launch. He sits in fourth currently on BassTrakk.
Keith Poche has made a pretty long run, comparatively speaking, to a small but deep backwater pond. He’s flipped a little and thrown a frog a lot, force feeding the fish in this area to the best of his ability.
