Very few zeros, plenty of limits and five bass over 5 pounds highlighted the first round of GON’s Skeeter Eliminator Series tournament at Lake Sinclair this morning. The Boater and Non-boater fields have been cut in half, and those anglers are back on the water for Round 2, another four-hour, heads-up battle that will decide the final 16 in both brackets who move on to Lake Oconee tomorrow.

The biggest bass of the morning was an 8.48-lb. giant that non-boater Neal Locklear caught while fishing a Texas-rigged, red-flake worm under a boat dock. Neal also had the best sack among the 64 non-boaters with a total weight of 10.06 pounds.

The best sack on the boater side was Tony Beck’s limit that weighed 12.40 pounds. Tony has the big bass on the boater side, a 7.41-lb. largemouth.

The Round 2 weigh-in begins at 5 p.m. at Little River Park on Lake Sinclair.

Non-boater Neal Locklear earned $110 for Round 1 Big Fish honors at Lake Sinclair with this 8.48-lb. giant that hit a Texas-rigged worm under a boat dock.
