Day two of the Abu Garcia College Fishing presented by YETI National Championship presented by Lowrance is underway on the Harris Chain. The link to yesterday's top patterns is below, and we'll try to check in here about every hour with updates from around the field. 

Day one leaders 

Tournament details 

 

 

1:30 – We’re wrapping it up

With only an hour and a half left before the first flight checks in there are plenty of teams scrambling to make something happen in order to try and move inside the top 10 to fish tomorrow. A lot of the teams that spent their time up in Griffin have started to work their way back. The bite seems to have slowed in the early part of the afternoon, but with the water temperatures slowly climbing it’s not wild to expect teams in the last flights to take advantage of a late bite in the warmest part of the day. Our coverage team is off the water, so tune in at 3 p.m. ET to see what teams will qualify for the final round because there will be plenty of shuffling today on the leaderboard.

Bethel – Cully Scroggins and Nathon Portch – limit for 10 pounds, one is a 6-pounder

Blue Mountain College – Fisher Overton and Fisher Young – four keepers

Sam Houston State – Colby Brant – two keepers

 

12:30 – Rounding up the leaders 

We've now hit most of the folks who did well on day one, and the only thing clear is that they aren't doing quite as well on day two. So far, the best of the bunch is definitely the McKendree University duo of Nathan Doty and Jacob Louis. They put perhaps 12 pounds in the boat fairly early, and culled twice to get over 15 pounds as we watched. The leading Sam Houston State duo of Bryton Kurtz and Jackson Carrell have assembled a limit now, but it's just babies at this point. 

Sam Houston State – Bryton Kurtz and Jackson Carrell – small limit 

McKendree University – Nathan Doty and Jacob Louis – 15 pounds

SFA – Christopher Harrison and Ethan LeGare – 13 pounds 

ULM – Conner Nimrod and Morgan Jalaldin – 14 pounds 

EKU – Kyler Petrey and Jeffrey Rubner – two keepers

Clarkson University – Tyler Robinson – one keeper 

Coastal Carolina – William Tattersall and Max McQuaide – a limit for 8 pounds 

FSU – Garret Sanders and Owen Kuhn – 12 pounds 

 

11:15 – Warming up and so is the bite

The wind is still blowing pretty good, but the sun is shining and making it feel a whole lot nicer outside than it did at takeoff. In Griffin, there are few more teams exploring the marshes than there were on day one, but nobody we’ve talked with has the makings of a megabag punching mats. The fifth-place team of Josh Perrin and Matthew Sewell of Sam Houston State are back where the magic happened yesterday in Griffin, but only have one small keeper in the box. Elsewhere, the McKendree University duo of Nathan Doty and Jacob Louis have a limit worth 13 pounds.

Sam Houston State – Jayce Garrison and Mason Hoke – two keepers, one is a 4-pounder

Sacramento State – Aaron Nguyen and Christopher Orgon – one keeper

Lander University – Drew Pridgen and Chasten Beck – two keepers for 4 pounds

University of Akron – Josh Kelly and Jonathan Harter – three keepers for 7 pounds

Iowa State – Parker Domschke and Marcus Proll – three keepers for 7 pounds

ETBU – Brett Clark and Cody Ross – two keepers

University of West Georgia – Ty Mossberg and Jake Buchannan – four keepers

 

9:50 – It's cold, but some teams are catching 

Early this morning, the weather is pretty brutal for Florida. Though it is plenty sunny, it's quite cold, and the wind is blowing pretty good. Still, some of the teams are catching, especially offshore. The leading Sam Houston State duo of Bryton Kurtz and Jackson Carrell have just two fish so far, but, they caught them both on a patch of offshore grass. 

Sam Houston State – Bryton Kurtz and Jackson Carrell – two small keepers

Bethel University – John Garrett and Kyle Palmer – 10 pounds, catching fish almost every cast 

University of West Georgia – Ty Mossberg and Jake Buchannan – two keepers 

Dallas Baptist – Ryan Wood and Hunter Scott – a 3-pounder and a 5-pounder 

Sam Houston State – Jayce Garrison and Mason Hoke – one 3-pounder 

Auburn – Chase Mundhenke and Blake Milligan – one keeper

Georgia College – Rudy Pearson and John Garrett Pearson – one keeper
