Talley in his element

Although Frank Talley had never fished Ray Roberts before pre-practice, he’s liking what he sees so far. The Texas native has three in the box that have him over 12 pounds on BassTrakk.

Talley had no intention of trying to spend his practice out deep searching for schools of fish.

“I feel like the water coming up was my best chance to do well,” said Talley.

The two-time Classic qualifier knows that he is only two bites away from having a really good sack of fish and putting himself in good position after Day 1.
