30 pounds and five ouncesand Hunter Shryock has his eyeson his first Championship
Sunday appearance if he keeps catching them like that. Through the first cut,
and I know it’s alwaysa lot of pressure drops off at that point. And I bet you guys
gotta be looking forwardto getting out there tomorrow. – I haven’t even thought
about it honestly,I’m still kind of shaking
because at two o’clock,I’m doing at three. And I had nine pounds,
so literally in like40 minutes, I looked
up to the sky and said,”Lord, I need a bite,
just give me a sign. “And he gave me three for
nine pounds instantly. So really blessed day,
and I’m just thankfulto get those couple
bites right at the end. – Pretty good sign. I look forward to see you tomorrow. – Like I said before,there’s not a lot of difference betweenfinishing at the front or in last place,and today was just one of
those super special daysthat, you know, really
they happen all the time. I want to believe, and have the faith,that those things are going to happen. And it’s just an awesome
reminder that, you know what?You’re never out of it. – 107 anglers,
cut it down to 50. And after today, 12 will move
on to Championship Sunday. With one question in mind, holding thatblue trophy high over their head. – Little better. – There’s no way I
can do it, if you don’t. – Yeah! Yeah! Boom! – From Newcomerstown, Ohio,Elite Series Rookie, Hunter Shryock. With 30 pounds and five
ounces starting today,love to get him into Championship Sunday. Looking for 12 pounds, 15 ounces so far. 13 pounds, nine ounces! ‘Cause you’re sitting
in 12th place right now. – Yeah, I don’t think
that’s going to hold up,I mean I’ve had a fun week here,and really just, I just
scrambled everyday. And the Mississippi River, it’s rising,and a lot of fun. You know, I was throwing my Abu Garcianew gen fours, with the new
Spiderwire Stealth-Braid,and I think that really made a difference. Power pole down, make long, long casts. I’m talking 30, 40 yards on a frog,and that’s the funnest
way for me to go fishing. So I had a fun week, blessed week,and thanks to everybody for showing out,and hopefully, I was
gunning to be here tomorrow,but I don’t think it’s going to happen. – Well, we’d love you to stick around. We’ll find out at the
end, at the weigh in. Former Bass Pro. It’s a good or bad tournament,some lessons are still being taught,and, you know, understanding
that the processof trying to get there,
and trying to do well,is these are the moments that
I’m going to remember forever.
