Arroyo Grander angler Jared Lintner, for only the second time in his second year on the CITGO Elite Bassmaster tour, made the final cut Saturday and will be fishing in today’s final competition on the California Delta in Stockton.
Lintner lacked the consistency he had on the first two days of the competition. Instead of the 21 pounds he brought to the scales Thursday and Friday, 9 pounds, 13 ounces is all he could muster Saturday.
The top prize in the second 2007 Elite tournament series is probably out of reach for Lintner. A two-man competition figures to take place as former Californian Aaron Martens (Casitas) and Derek Remitz have weights of 69-13 and 66-11, respectively.
Weights from the three days carry over to today. Lintner is in ninth place with a 51-13 total. The sixth- through eighthplace anglers are no more than 12 ounces ahead of him.
