Mark Daniels Jr. mixed in a dropshot and tube bite with his primary pattern of deep cranking. His three-pronged approached gave him a 3rd place finish behind Jason Christie and Brock Mosley.
There were numerous Elite Series anglers that had intense battles with smallmouth at the side of the boat. Some came off, but these close calls ended on a good note as Brock Mosley, Jason Christie and Bradley Roy all managed to land their fish.
On the final day of the Advance Auto Parts Bassmaster Elite, Mark Daniels Jr. hooked what he thought was a giant smallmouth, then he thought it was a walleye and eventually he realized it was a massive Muskie.
