8:20 AM – October 10, 2021
Day 1 leaders Robert Gee and Luke Byerly from the University of Tennessee are locking through this morning on the way to their first fishing spot.
Information received from the camera crew following them is that the lock master notified anglers that they would have to be back by 10:00 AM to return to Lake Dardanelle. A significant amount of barge traffic is expected today, leading to the earlier return time. This could have a significant impact on the teams that are locking, and force them to change up their gameplan drastically.
8:10 AM – October 10, 2021
Camera crews will be following the Top 3 teams to start the final day of competition at Lake Dardanelle. We will provide updates from on-the-water as they come in.
