RALEIGH, N.C. – While only 20 MLF pros were competing on Jordan Lake for Qualifying Day 1, they did their best to make a show of it during General Tire Heavy Hitters Presented by Bass Pro Shops. Michael Neal took an early and commanding lead to begin the day but petered out in Period 2 as the rest of the field began to heat up. For the rest of the day, it was an oscillating top spot that ended with Neal leading Group A, catching 51 pounds, 15 ounces of bass. Catch some of the on-the-water action from North Carolina!
Watch the MLF NOW! live stream from 7:15 a.m. ET to 4 p.m. daily April 9-14 for all the Heavy Hitters coverage!
