It is the final day here at the Toyota Series Western Division event on Clear Lake and another beautiful day with the top 10 pros and co-anglers trying their best to take home the title.
There is still plenty of time left, but things are ripe for a big shakeup near the top of the leaderboard with the leader, Tom White, struggling and guys in striking distance ready to pounce.
It was a hot start for two pros, both third-place pro Justin Kerr and fourth-place angler Tai Au had solid limits in the boat very quickly. Kerr had 14 pounds in the boat in less than two hours and reported losing several others.
Tai Au is one to watch this afternoon as his weight estimates jumped from 17 pounds to 21 pounds after catching a 7-pounder. His current estimated total is even higher at 24 pounds.
Day-one leader Tom White is struggling to start the day with an estimated 10 pounds. His day started off rough as he lost a box containing his prime baits for the day. On his main area, boats are all over his spot. But, everyday his bite turns on around lunchtime, so don’t count him out just yet.
Here is a rundown of some of the weight estimates gathered this morning:
Tom White – 10 pounds
Tai Au – Estimated 24 pounds with a 7-pound kicker
Justin Kerr – 14 pounds
Wade Curtiss – 10 pounds
Sergio Arguello – Three fish for 9 pounds
Jordan Collom – A limit for 13 pounds
Phillip Dutra – Limit weighing around 12 pounds
Jared Lintner – Small limit for approximately 10 pounds
John Pearl – Four fish by 9:00 after losing a kicker he estimates at 5 pounds
