Casey Ashley returned to the same ares of Lake Guntersville and fished the same pattern he identified on the first day of the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.
His reward was an 18-pound, 10-ounce stringer of bass that kept him in the hunt for the Classic title. His two-day total of 41-12 earned him a sixth-place ranking going into the final round of competition.
He is less than 6 pounds behind leader Edwin Evers — and that’s a weight that can easily be overcome on Guntersville.
