Fishing: Tough start for Gray

LAKEPORT — Atascadero pro Gene Gray, who entered the tournament in fourth place midway through the Pro-Am season, has only a miniscule chance of remaining there.

Gray is lodged in 61st place after Saturday’s fishing in the two-day Angler’s Choice tournament on Clear Lake.

Gray had a 15.72-pound limit..

“I caught all of my bass sight fishing,” Gray said. His weight was nearly 10 pounds less than leader Mike Tuck, who opened with a 25.34-pound limit. The top 16 pros had 20-pound plus limits.

The tournament concludes Sunday. The final tournament in the four event series is Sept. 11-12 at the California Delta.
