2012 Elite Series Power-Pole Slam Lake Okeechobee Day 3: Giant Bass Come to the Scales (Photo Essay)

By Luigi De Rose

The Top 50 anglers just finished the third day of competition on Lake Okeechobee. Man was there a lot of big bass caught. Usually, in multi-day tournaments the action slow by day 3 for most but the anglers at the top but not at the Big O. Huge bass and plenty of them make it to the scales. Here is a run down on the best catches of the day.

In second place, Chris Lane had 31-03 lbs. Fourth place anlger Shaw Grigsby had 30-07. Terry Scroggins netted 24-11 and fifth. Brent Chapman bagged 26-14 and captured sixth. KVD made a huge leap with his 28-11 pounds of bass and is sitting in seventh. He also landed the tournament's largest bass, a 8-14 pound giant.

Many of the Bassmaster Pro anglers who didn't have an amazing day still nailed at least one bass over 6lbs. It's truly amazing to see so many large bass brought to the scales.

Is this touranment over? No chance and Ish knows it. Considering this is south Florida, there are so many 10 pound plus class largemouths swimming around its scary. Anyone who can hook one of these trophies can jump from anywhere from within the final 12 places to grab the trophy on Sunday. Should be a super Sunday.

Check out these beauties!
