I was wrong, I can admit it. With all the talk of how Falcon Lake’s water level was down and the fish would be harder to catch, I bought into it. I assumed the daily bags would be 20 to 25lb meaning a winning bag would be 80 to 100lb.
After Keith Combs brought 34-13lb’s to the scales on day one my assumption was blown out of the water. Even if Keith only brings 25lb to the scales the next three days plus what he brought on day one, Keith will have around 109lb and break the century mark.
109lb won’t break the record held by Paul Elias for the biggest sack over a four day tourney (132-8). Paul Elias set that record on Falcon Lake. If Keith Combs can bring 34 to 35lbs to the scales everyday he could set a new record. I can admit I was wrong, I didn't think the record had any chance of being broken.
Sure it’s only been one day, but that first day weight can be a good indicator of what it is going to take every day to win the tournament. We will have to wait until Sunday to see if any angler can break the record. I no longer think a 40 plus pound bag is out of the question. This event is going to come down to big weights and who can find the most, big mamas to weigh-in.
