Another former EverStart Series Championship winner, National Guard pro Mark Rose of Marion, Ark., sacked a 10-11 limit today to climb two places to third with a total weight of 30-9.
“I’m just fishing like the rest of these guys – by the seat of my pants,” he said, adding that he is enjoying the ride. “It’s nice to fish the bank again … on a river system like this and get back to my roots.”
Rose is “just fishing a small oxbow, covering a lot of water as fast as I can” in the same area of Pool 5. Most of his bites have come from a Strike King KVD 1.5 crankbait, but he also reported catching some on a 3/8-ounce Strike King Pro Model spinnerbait.
