Bassmasters Series Rolls Through Day 2

By  | 

Day two of the Pride of Georgia and much like a golf tournament, cut day on Clarks Hill. The field of over 100 fishermen being widdled down to just 50 following friday's weigh ins.

Hard to believe how quickly bass fishing and the Bassmasters has become a huge sport. This week's event pays $100 grand to the winner with the total purse in excess of $600,000. This year's Pride of Georgia is a week later than last year and with lake levels lower than normal, the fishing is a little different for the best in the world.

"Everyone's pretty much found the same stuff" said Alton Jones "A lot of it is real obvious and visable to the eyes and so I'm having to run a rotation with a lot of other boats. So you just have to figure out ways to catch fish. You can pull up on a point behind someone and maybe show the bass a little something different to trigger one to bite."
