Day Two: Keith Combs leads Tundra Top Ten into Grand Finale on Lake Fork

Top pros from the PAA, Bassmaster and FLW (the TTBC is a unifying championship) that were on the fish yesterday stayed locked on them today – and it appears no one’s going to stumble tomorrow. It’s going to be a rumble Sunday on Lake Fork.

Pros in yesterday’s top ten – Keith Combs, Stetson Blaylock, Russ Lane, Justin Lucas, Jason Christie, Randy Haynes, Matt Reed, Brandon Coulter – stayed on the short list today.

Mark Rose stepped up from 11th as Todd Faircloth hotfooted from 14th into 10th.

Ladies and gentlemen, those are your 2014 Toyota Tundra Top Ten that made the cut and will fish Lake Fork for one last exciting round tomorrow, Sunday May 11th when one of them will be crowned the undisputed new world champion of professional 9ass fishing.



Amazingly the massive parade of big bags continued at Lake Fork on Day 2 at the Toyota Texas Bass Classic. It’s been an amazing week so far and the best is yet to come – the time to crown the 2014 TTBC champion tomorrow afternoon.

A Lucky Catch

As California pro Chris Zaldain came to the docks as the end of the day, he was excited to show off his prized catch, a piece from a submerged tree with nine crankbaits still attached from previous anglers. “I caught a seven pounder from this spot, so whoever was fishing here and losing crankbaits knew what they were doing,” said Zaldain. For the record, he lost more than nine crankbaits this week so he is still in the negative.
