'High Pressure' Bearing Down on Qualifying Round 3 Anglers

Qualifying Round 3 of the Major League Fishing 2016 Bass Pro Shops Challenge Select in Youngstown, Ohio, found its way back to Mosquito Creek Lake, where the first Qualifying Round was held.

“Looks to me like a big hole with water in it,” laughed GEICO Selects angler Bill Day as he laid eyes on the lake for the first time. “I hope it’s full of bass because I want to qualify for a Cup.”

Day owns Day’s Boat Sales in Frankfort, Ky., and has fished five seasons on the FLW Tour. Fishing in an MLF event has been a dream of his since he first saw it on TV several years ago.

“We all sit around on the couch and fantasize about competing at this level,” he added. “I’m 50 years old and this is a bucket-list thing for me. To do well in one of these and advance to a Cup would mean a lot. And this is the last opportunity I’m going to have this year to make it happen – it’s time to get out there and get the job done.”


Day didn’t fair too well in the Summit Select in Cookeville, Tenn.


“I had a lot of apprehension about that first event,” Day recalled. “These MLF events are so different, I didn’t really know the protocol. You see it on TV and get the idea of how it works, but to actually fish one is far more intense. In Tennessee, I sort of had that deer-in-the-headlights look. This time I know how it all works and I feel a lot better about it.”
