Anglers reported a lot of morning catches using the A-rig and later afternoon bites tended to be either a jerk bait or square bill crank bait, and then the occasional favorite black and blue jig. They seemed to be catching them better on day 2 and this may have been contributed to the front moving in.
Midway into Session 1, Jay Emmert from University of Tennessee-Knoxville came to the scales and weighed in an 8.85 pound bass that he caught on an A-rig and became that session's leader, as well as overall tournament leader. And that 8.85 pounds held all day with the next closest bass on day 2 being a 6.72 pound bass brought in by Austin Keeton from Calhoun Community College.
The Top 5 of the event were:
1st - Jay Emmert, University of Tennessee-Knoxville - 8.85 pounds 2nd - Ty Dyer, Bethel University - 7.42 pounds 3rd - Cody Santel, Murray State - 6.84 pounds 4th - Austin Keeton, Calhoun Community College - 6.72 pounds 5th - Zach Parker, Bethel University - 6.62 pounds
