Perkins maintains top spot on Oneida

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Bill Perkins caught only a five-bass limit Friday, but that 17-pound bag was enough to keep the New York pro in the lead on Day 2 of the Basspro.com Bassmaster Northern Open at Oneida Lake.

Bolstering his Day 1 limit of 18-11, Perkins tallied 35-11 and leads Sam George of Athens, Ala., by 15 ounces.
