The second day of the B&W Trailer Hitches Stage Four Presented by ATG x Wrangler looked fairly similar to the first. One angler in the group of 40 MLF pros shot up SCORETRACKER®, giving himself a commanding lead going into Qualifying Day 2. On Friday, Russ Lane dominated on Lake Chickamauga. On Saturday, it was Edwin Evers.

Evers ended Group B’s Qualifying Day 1 with 74 pounds, 14 ounces, which is 18-3 more than second-place Kevin VanDam. Even more impressive, Evers caught some healthy largemouth, including a 6-pounder, a 7-pounder and an 8-pounder.

If Evers is able to hold on to his lead when Group B returns to Chickamauga on Monday, he’ll skip the Knockout Round and advance straight to the Championship Round.
