Another Short Day for the Mid-Atlantic Anglers
Thursday was another tough test for the anglers from the Mid-Atlantic Division. Fog delayed Thursday’s start time until just after 9:00 am and the early morning bite was once again lost, just as it was on Day 1. As with any day, some anglers will still find and catch some fish. As many anglers stated as the crossed the stage on Thursday, they caught quite a few fish, but they all were just short of the minimum size limit. Hopefully Friday’s weather will allow the anglers to go out on time at daylight tomorrow.
Moving to the top of the list, after Thursday, was Mike Keller from New Jersey. Mike weighed 4-05 on Wednesday and 5-09 on Thursday to take the lead into the final day with 9-14 pounds. Just 6 ounces behind him in second is Bobby Crisman of Virginia who weighed 4-06 and 5-02 for a total of 9-08 pounds. Just five ounces back of second, in third, was Day 1 leader Darren Pincus. His catch of 7-14 and 1-05 leave him with 9-03 heading into the final day. Six ounces separates third from fourth which belongs to Erroll Hash of Virginia. He weighed 4-04 and 4-09 to have 8-13 pounds after two days. Rounding out the top five places is Derick Olson of Pennsylvania . He turned in 3-03 and 4-07 to take 7-10 pounds into the final day.
