Top 5 Update

This week we have one guy who is in a bit of a fishing slump eke out a couple lightweights to complete his Top 5. We also have another angler who is in what is known as “the zone” continuing to light up the bass to the tune of a limit already exceeding twenty-five pounds. Funny thing is, the guy in the zone has been referred to as “Slump” for as long as I can recall.
