Santee Cooper Sow-Fest

The pros thought it may get better after Day 1 & they were right. There were 7 anglers topping the 30lb mark and the total field bested Thursday's total by more than 450 lbs.

Preston Clark continues to set the pace. His 5 fish weighed a mortal 29-05, pushing his two day total to 68-11, giving his a 5-02 lead on Kelly Jordan. Clark only needs about 20lbs per day in the final 2 days to break the record, not out of the question considering his first to limits. In fact, 8 anglers are more than half way to Rojas' record, and funny enough, Dean Rojas is one of them. In fact, if more big fish keep coming to the banks, there is potential for someone outside the Top 10 to surge up and challenge the record. Below you will see the Top 50 anglers, and "the Bachelor" Byron Velvick was the last guy in the cut. Notice the cut here is about 5lbs heavier than that of the famed Amistad Tournament.
