A Big Bag And A Bust
Bryan Thrift stunned just about everyone on day one when he weighed in 27 pounds, 8 ounces to take what appeared to be a commanding lead of more than 7 pounds. On day two, Thrift weighed only two bass for 3-9, and he blanked on the final day. Thrift finished seventh.
Interestingly, Chad Foster, who led on day two of the 2017 championship, also blanked on day three.
