John Hunter was able to snag his five fish limit, but it wasn't easy according to him.
"I had a good day out there today. It was definitely a slow bite. I'm gonna have to grind it out tomorrow."
Hunter's five fish weighed in at a total of 16lb-15oz, good enough for him to sit in 11th place at the end of Day 1. He will need to have another solid day on Day 2, as only the top 10 anglers after the second day will move on to fish Day 3.
"I had some fun out there today. I'm going to go out tomorrow and just give it my best shot."
Bradley Enfinger, from Colquitt, GA, is the leader after Day 1 with a weight of 22lb-05oz. Hunter's fish put him 5lb-06oz behind the top spot.
