|Sunday will be the battle of Ticonderoga.|
Stewart had to adjust and run some new water on the fly to stay on the caliber of fish he’s been catching. His primary tactic all week has been flipping shallow cover on the main lake where the bass are keying on a particular type of baitfish. Today, he did get a few bites on a square-bill just “showing them something different,” which produced one of the keepers he brought to weigh-in. Then he lucked into a 3 1/2-pound smallmouth that culled one of his largemouths once he got back to Plattsburgh.
2. Casey Scanlon – Lake Ozark, Mo. – 56-8 (15)He’ll also have to deal with that long run to Ticonderoga, where he’s been catching his fish with a trio of presentations on key main-lake shorelines.
3. Eric Jackson – Walling, Tenn. – 55-13 (15)
4. Bryan Thrift – Shelby, N.C. – 55-6 (15)
5. Daryl Biron – South Windsor, Conn. – 55-2 (15)
