The pair holds the tournament lead with a first-day catch of 17.87 pounds. Second place belongs to the father-son team of Larry and David Jacobs, who hauled in a five-fish limit weighing 17.39 pounds.
Keith Meads and Gerald Murray currently have the biggest fish of the tourney, with a 6.60 pound lunker.
