Yelas hammers em

Jay Yelas rocketed out of the gate this morning catching 17 pounds of smallmouth by 8:30. That has him sitting unofficially in 1st place.

Yelas is fishing a massive grass flat in five feet of water.

“I’m sort of random casting,” he said. “But I’m targeting areas where I marked fish in practice. I usually like to be more specific with my casts.

Yelas is using a two bait approach, alternating frequently.

“This is such a vast area. I’m hoping to get a big bag and then explore some.”
