FISHING: Light day for Hawk on Lake Conroe
CONROE, Texas — Lake Havasu City angler Roy Hawk battled a tough day on Lake Conroe that saw more than half the compeition catch five fish or fewer in the first round at Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour Stage Two on Wednesday.
Hawk reeled in just four bass, each weighing less than two pounds, for a total weight of 6 pounds to sit in 33rd place in Group B after the shotgun round.
Despite the relatively light day on the lake, he is just five pounds back of the cutline with most of the field settling for five bass or less. Phoenix’s Brett Hite is in 16th place with a catch of six bass at a weight of 13 pounds, 11 ounces.
