Peter T surges to second

Second-place pro Pete Thliveros caught a five-bass limit Saturday that weighed 33 pounds, 14 ounces.

Rising to second place was Saint Augustine, Fla., pro Peter Thliveros, who caught a limit weighing 33 pounds, 14 ounces, the heaviest day-three weight ever recorded in FLW Tour history. It’s also the biggest bag in his illustrious angling career. But more important than breaking records, Thliveros closed the gap to first significantly. Ironically, he’ll fish within sight of Prough tomorrow as the two jockey for the tournament title.

“I’ve been fishing this lake for over 20 years and I’ve never seen it any better,” he said. “This rivals anything Texas and Mexico have to offer. I’m as fired up as you can get right now.”

Thliveros is no longer the biggest fan of sight-fishing. Instead he’s become a master of bed-fishing via blind casts to lighter, isolated cover. Three of his fish came that way today – the other two by looking at them.

“I’ve been fishing this lake for over 20 years and I’ve never seen it any better,” he said. “This rivals anything Texas and Mexico have to offer. I’m as fired up as you can get right now.”

With one day remaining, Peter T’s total weight sits at 82 pounds, 14 ounces.
