Toyota Angler of the Year leader Gerald Swindle started the final day of the Plano Bassmaster Elite on the Mississippi River presented by Favorite Fishing in 10th place. After catching a limit in Minnesota he came back to Wisconsin to finish his day. While in Wisconsin he saw leader Ott DeFoe fishing in a random area and not DeFoe's primary spot. DeFoe said he hadn't caught a fish and it was 10:30 a.m. so Swindle told him a couple places he could catch a couple fish to break the ice. DeFoe did so and after calming his nerves went on to win the event later.
