As coverage has unfolded on Day 2, it has become apparent that many of the teams in the Top 10 are utilizing similar patterns in the same sections of the lake.  Numerous teams are running and gunning, as they report hitting 40 places in one day.
The early morning bite and late afternoon bite have proven to be key over the past two days.  As we enter a bit of a lull at the moment, stay tuned to see if things pick back up around lunch time.
Drop shots and Garmin Panoptix LiveScope have been two major tools for these anglers.
Several teams have found success targeting bream beds.  That is a bite that will last all day and could produce some very quality fish.
