We are over midway through the first day of the St. Croix Bassmaster Open at St. Lawrence River and the top of the BassTrakk standings are impressive. At 11:30 a.m. ET, Jody White was leading the way with 24 pounds, 0 ounces unofficially.
Elite Qualifier young guns Logan Parks and JT Thompkins follow with 22-0 each and Chris Beaudrie has landed 21-8. Then there’s Elite Series pro and smallmouth hammer Cory Johnston in fifth with 20-10 and Canadian stick and EQ angler Jamie Bruce has moved to sixth with 20-8. Rich Ortiz has recorded 20-7 on Basstrakk, the seventh angler who has 20 pounds.
And those are just the anglers who have reported their catches. In a field of 212, only 50 anglers have recorded their catch in BassTrakk, so there could be some secret megabags revealed on stage later today.
Weigh-in will begin at 2 p.m. ET from Whitaker Park in Waddington and can be viewed live on Bassmaster.com.
