For only the 15th time in 42 Bassmaster Elite tournaments, Arroyo Grande’s Jared Lintner finished out of the money Friday.
He caught a 13-pound, 9-ounce limit on the California Delta near Stockton on Friday, but he missed the first cut largely due to weighing only one bass Thursday.
Lintner’s 16-pound two-day total put him in 60th place, 13 spots and 3 pounds, 11 ounces from making the 47-angler cut.
Fifty-five of the 93 entrants had five-fish limits Friday, 15 more limits than opening day. There were seven sacks over 20 pounds.
Never miss a local story.
While the 47 survivors are deciding matters at the Delta the next two days, Lintner and the other non-qualifiers move on to Clear Lake where Elite event No. 2 will be contested March 18-21.
