Co llins brought in 14.40 pounds today bringing his three day tot al to 41.84 pounds. He currently holds a 5.44 pound lead over second place. "It was slower for me today, but I did get m y five pound kicker that I needed. I didn't get my limit until around 10:30 this morning. I'm sticking with my same pattern tomorrow. I feel good and I think I can do it one more time tomorrow," said Collins.

Second place after day three belongs to Sam Boss of Paducah, KY wit h a three day total of 36.40 pounds. He has been super super consistent this week weighing in bags around the 11 and 12 pound mark each day.  If the leader's pattern holds, Boss will need a big bag to take the lead on the final day.

George Baucom of Charlotte, NC held on to the co-angler lead after the third day.  His three day total of 26.43 pounds has him ahead of second place by over six pounds. "I had a super boater today and he took me where I wanted to go. The fish didn't bite like yesterday and it was cold and windy all day. I'm looking forward to fishing with Albert Collins tomorrow," said Baucom.

The second place co-angler spot on Day Three belongs to Harry Peyton of Decatur, AL with a total of 20.36 pounds. I found some good fish and I'm hoping that my boater might take me to them at some point tomorrow. I will head out tomorrow and swing for the fences," said Peyton.

After an unfortunate turn of events first thing this morning, Dustin Smith of Mt. Dora, FL still managed to lead Day One with a 14.30 pound limit along with the 5.99 pound Big Bass. A broken throttle cable on his initial run changed Smith's plan completely.  "After I broke down, I immediately started searching for some aggressive fish, while trying to figure out how to make it back to weigh in.  Thankfully, the ABA staff was able to help get me in to weigh in around 12:30 today and The Boat House in Athens was able to get my boat repaired.  I'm ready for tomorrow and I think I can still catch them on Day Two.  I would like to give a huge thank you to ABA and The Boat House for all of their help," said Smith.

Second place on Day One belongs to Chad Hicks of Rockville, VA with 14.10 pounds.

Jeff Loach of Chickamauga, GA is leading the co-angler side with 10.54 pounds.  Loach did not want to talk about his main bait or pattern on Day One.  "I had a great partner today.  I think I have the bait, but I just don't know if I can catch the same size fish tomorrow," said Loach.

The 6.02 pound co-angler Big Bass was caught by Clyde Whiteside of Forrest City, NC.  Whiteside is sitting in second place with 9.20 pounds.
