In third in the division is Reed Hall, who caught his way onto the board on Tuesday with a 16.5-pound, 32 1/4-inch rainbow that he opted to release. In fourth is John Ross, who hooked a 16.4 pound, 35-inch fish. In fifth is Kris Kulp who lead the division in the derby's opening day with a 14.9-pound, 32-inch rainbow.
