SOMERSET, KY – Friday, April 13, certainly wasn't lucky for La Crosse professional bass fisherman Tom Monsoor.
The veteran Monsoor finished in 91st place in the FLW Tour Qualifier on Lake Cumberland in Somerset, KY.
Monsoor caught a five fish limit weighing 13 pounds, 2 ounces in Thursday's opening round, good enough for 42nd place. However, he managed only 9-14 on Friday, despite another five fish limit. His two-day total was 23-0.
Pro Andy Morgan of Dayton, TN, took a 15-12 limit to the scale Friday to maintain his lead after Day Two. Morgan’s two-day total of 10 bass weighing 34-11 gave him a 1-6 advantage heading into the third day of competition in the four-day event that features a field of 183 of the world’s best bass fishing professionals and co-anglers competing for top awards of up to $125,000 cash in the pro division and up to $25,000 cash in the co-angler division.
The field is now cut to the top 30 pros as anglers resume competition Saturday morning, with only the top 10 pros advancing to Championship Sunday.
Monsoor finished 59th in the FLW Tour Qualifier on Lake Lanier in Gainesville GA, recently, pocketing a $10,000 check.
