After the first day, the one thing that is still certain, in this event, is that everyone is still in the hunt to make the championship. The keeper bites were few and far between as only 102 keeper fish were weighed in by the 94 anglers. There was only one limit weighed in today and it belonged to Joseph Webster of Fulton, Mississippi with 12.12 pounds.
Eight other anglers have a weight of just over 6 pounds going into the second day of competition on the Tenn-Tom Waterway in Aberdeen, Mississippi. Most every angler in each of the 8 competing states, still has an opportunity to be one of the top two anglers from their state, come Friday.
Ben Milliken got off to a good start with two fish that weighed 7.09 pounds. He also brought the biggest bass of the day to the scales with a nice 5.05 lunker.
The top two anglers from each of the eight states are as follows:
Kansas: David Heffel 6.08 & Jayce Newell 6.01
Mississippi: Joseph Webster 12.12 & Jamie Long 6.09
Oklahoma: Johnny Babb 6.15 & Brandon Moss 4.14
Nebraska: Ben Milliken 7.09 & Terry Hussey 5.11
Arkansas: Mike Palmer 6.08 & Josh Ray 6.08
Missouri: Cole Findley 6.01 & Tim Biondo 4.15
Louisiana: Mark Brasher 4.07 & Seth Leblanc 4.06
