Breeden & Smith just boxed up their third keeper. That now gives them roughly 4.5-5 pounds. They will likely need another 3-4 pounds to have a real shot, anything more than that and they could lock it up. But, anything can happen. Past history on this lake says that it normally takes 26-30 pounds to win this two-day event. We will find out the winning weight in just a few short hours!
