As the first day comes to a close, two local anglers sit atop of the unofficial Weigh Live Tracker.  Brandon Perkins has jumped out to the lead over Michael Brewer with over 20-pounds as we head into the final hour of fishing.

There are only 11 limits reported with many more expect to hit the scales. As anglers are in and out of service, the unofficial results may vary.

The top ten going into the weigh in at 2:30 pm (CT):
Brandon Perkins 20-12
Michael Brewer 18-14
Sheldon Collings 17-0
Louis Fernandes 16-12
Gary Adkins 16-9
Dustin Wilkey 16-4
Tim Cales15-3
John Cox 15-3
Hayden Hammond 14-12
Kevin Rogers 12-7
