Day Two Heats Up at Norman
The Southern Divisional started off with warm temperatures and numerous limits, but with very few quality
fish being weighed in. Thursday was even hotter and the bites, still did not materialize. Most anglers reported struggling to get any quality bites and most struggled to just catch an average limit of ten to twelve pounds.
Yesterday’s leader, Brian Fritts, NC, managed just 10.07 pounds today to end the day in second place overall. Joshua Queen, NC, turned in 12.15 pounds to take over the daily lead with 26.09 pounds. Third belonged to Tommy Lindler, SC, with 24.13 pounds. Nelson Walker nailed down the fourth spot with 23.10 & Mike Edwards, NC, rounds out the top five with 22.11 pounds.
The daily big bass went to David Kneece, of SC, with a big 6.10 lunker.
With the heat and massive amounts of sunshine, most anglers are still talking about catching most of their fish while flipping docks around the lake.
The team competition is still pretty close after Thursday. Most of the seven states are within just a few pounds of each other. The race for the top two anglers from each state is still up for grabs as well. Multiple anglers from each state still have a legitimate chance of moving into the top two spots and qualifying for the Federation National Championship next spring.
