LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Daniel Schults of Pine Bluff leads the field of anglers with a 5.63 pound bass he caught in the Dumas pool.  Schults caught the fish in the 9 a.m. hour to take the overall lead on the first day of the three-day tournament.

When asked about the experience, Schults, who spent the morning fishing with his father Wayne said, “I was fishing hard.”  This was the second time the younger Schults had fished the Dumas pool.

•  Martin Arnold of Ft. Smith (5.36) – Fort Smith pool

•  David Wood of Dardanelle (5.54) – Dardanelle pool

•  Eric Green of Pine Bluff (5.49) – Pine Bluff pool

The top fish wins the guaranteed $50,000. Each of the other four pool leaders has the potential to win a guaranteed $10,000 for catching the

largest fish in each of the other pools during the tournament.
