Jacob Powroznik ditched his plan to target largemouth after hitting 14 pounds, 15 ounces and decided to try and upgrade with smallmouth. His first smallmouth bite was over 4 pounds and ballooned his weight to 16-8.
Ish Monroe boated a 5-1 smallmouth and gave him an almost 3 pound upgrade. This put him in control of his matchup with Mike Iaconelli with just a little bit of time left.
Ish Monroe defeated Mike Iaconelli and Jacob Powroznik eliminated Dave Lefebre as they both advance to the Classic Bracket finale in hopes of snagging one available GEICO Bassmaster Classic spot.
