John Hunter went into Day 2 of the first Bassmasters Northern Open on the James River sitting outside the Top 50. The James had proven to be a challenge for Hunter from the first day of practice. It was going to take a big effort from the professional to edge himself into a Top 50 finish, but that's exactly what Hunter was able to deliver at the end of Day 2.
John netted a limit of fish for 13lbs-8oz to secure a Top 50 finish, landing 35th and bringing home some valuable points at the start of the tournament series. Hunter next heads to Syracuse, NY to participate in the second tournament of the Bassmasters Northern Opens,
