Excerpt from BASS

This Classic championship is wide open. But Evers and Tharp would have to be the favorites. Right behind them are Ott DeFoe (43-5) and Jason Christie (42-14).

Christie knows there's a 30-pound potential in the seven- to eight-mile stretch where he's been fishing. He caught that much during the second day of pre-practice last weekend.

"That's not hard to do when you catch a 10- or 11-pounder," Christie said. "I caught a 9-pounder the third day of practice."

Christie has yet to catch anything over 6 pounds during the tournament.

"I'm due two big ones (Sunday)," Christie said. "It's going to be fun."
