Redfish: Land and Savoie snag the Day 2 lead

PORT ARANSAS, Texas — Travis Land of Seguin, Texas, and Nicky Savoie of Cutoff, La., didn’t panic when their spot failed to produce. They simply adjusted their positioning, worked their plan and took over the Day 2 lead at the Yamaha Bassmaster Redfish Cup Championship presented by Skeeter with a two-day total of 27 pounds, 11 ounces.

The leaders, who are representing the Elite Redfish Tour,  placed fourth on Day 1 with 13-3 and bolstered that with a Day 2 catch of 14-8 — the day’s second-heaviest bag, behind the 15-6 weighed by Bassmaster Elite Series pro Patrick Walters of Summerville, S.C., and Dwayne Eschete of Lake Jackson, Texas. Land and Savoie lead Walters and Eschete by a margin of 1-5.
