KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The first Qualifying Day of the Toyota Heavy Hitters Presented by Venmo is complete, and Brent Ehrler has the biggest bass on SCORETRACKER®, with an 8-pound, 6-ounce largemouth. When Group A returns to the Kissimmee Chain on Tuesday, that’ll be the big bass to beat in order to bring home a $25,000 bonus prize.
Moments before Ehrler landed the 8-6, Justin Lucas set the bar with an 8-3.
John Murray also had an interesting afternoon. He caught two big bass in a row, each weighing 7-13.
While they’re competing to catch the biggest bass of the Qualifying Round, these anglers are also concerned about making the cut on Tuesday and moving on to the Knockout Round. Murray is in fourth place (29-6), Lucas is in sixth place (20-5) and Ehrler sits in 13th place (16-8).
