1. Top pro Jeff Fitts caught all of his bass flipping grass with a Strike King Rage Tail Rage Bugs. He alternated between black/blue and summer craw.
2. Taking second place, Daniel Kweekul targeted stumps and timber in prespawn staging areas with a swim jig and a Texas-rigged Yamamoto Senko. On day three, the latter proved most productive.
3. Teddy Bogard targeted pockets with pad stems with a Bama bug-colored Z-Man ChatterBait fitted with a sapphire blue trailer.
4. Todd Castledine, who led days one and two, relied on the new (not yet released) Strike King Poppin’ Perch and a Strike King tube around overhanging trees.
8. Focusing on riprap near bridges, eighth-place pro Greg Jones caught his fish on a Rapala Shad Rap and a Texas-rigged tube.
9. Working primarily lily pad cover, Joe McClary caught most of his fish on a black and blue swim jig with a Zoom Swimmin’ Super Fluke trailer.
