Day Two of the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit at the Harris Chain of Lakes presented by Bad Boy Mowers has been canceled due to inclement weather. With a lake wind advisory in effect from 10 a.m. ET until later this evening, conditions on the lake were deemed unsafe by Daniel Fennel, FLW Senior Director of Tournament Operations.

“With the present and forecasted conditions, we have deemed it unsafe for our anglers to head out today,” Fennel said. “Safety is our main priority. Everyone will stay in today and get back after it again Saturday.”

The tournament will resume Saturday with the full field of 154 pros competing. Following Saturday’s weigh-in, the top 30 pros will continue competition on Championship Sunday, with the winner determined by the heaviest accumulated weight from the three days of competition.

Anglers will take off at 7 a.m. EST each day from the Venetian Gardens, located at 201 E. Lake Harris Drive, in Leesburg. Saturday and Sunday’s weigh-ins will also be held at the Gardens, beginning at 4 p.m.

Pro Rusty Salewske of Alpine, California, brought a five-bass limit to the scale Thursday weighing 26 pounds, 10 ounces, to jump out to the early lead after Day One of the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit at the Harris Chain of Lakes presented by Bad Boy Mowers. Pro Miles Burghoff of Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee (26-8) and Jared McMillan of Belle Glade, Florida (22-1) are behind Salewske in second and third place as the four-day tournament, which features 154 of the world’s top bass-fishing professionals casting for a top prize of up to $135,000, heads into Day Two.
