As always, we asked the anglers what they think it will take to get it done during the tournament. Between guessing the winning weight and the weight it will take to get a check, this is what the anglers had to say.
Brandon Perkins: “Talking to a lot of guys that are saying it’s going to be 15-pounds a day. I think it’s going to be 17-pounds or more per day.”
James Biggs: “50-pounds to win the event, and 33.5-pounds for 36th place.”
Mike Comeau: “There was a 200-boat event here last weekend and it took 38-pounds to win. I guess with the pressure, it’s more like 50-pounds for three days here for us.”
Mike Yoder: “If this weather turns the fish on, it will be 11-pounds or more, but if it makes it harder, it will be more like 10.5-pounds or so. To win, I’m guessing 18-pounds a day.”
William Fletcher: “I’m going with 48 to 50-pounds to get the win, but check range will be 29 to 31-pounds.”
Keith Carson: “I think it’s going to be 18-pounds a day to win, my roommates have been catching them good!”
Ross Rhodes: “45 to 48-pounds a day should win, with 10 or 11-pounds a day getting a check. That will be close, with the expected cloud cover to change things up.”
River Lee: I think it will be less than 50-pounds to win, its Grand Lake and it changes fast, lots of pressure. 11.5-pounds will get a check, around 34-pounds or so.”
Eddie Carper: “I think it takes 12-pounds a day to get a check this week and 47 to 48-pounds a day to win. Someone will have 18 or 19-pounds one day and then follow it up with 14+-pound bags after that.
Louis Fernandes: “I think it will take 16 to 17-pounds a day to win and 12-pounds to make a check.”
Joel Willert: “Basically I have to weigh in one fish to make the championship so I am fishing free. To win this week, you will need a 16 to 16.5-pound average and 10.5-pounds a day gets a check.”
