Hanselman pulls out front at Rayburn

Hanselman pulls out front at Rayburn

Ray Hanselman, a resident of Del Rio, Texas, caught the lone sack exceeding 20 pounds as the 2014 Rayovac FLW Series Texas Division got under way at Sam Rayburn Reservoir. Hanselman's 21-05 stringer gave him a lead of nearly 3 pounds over FLW Tour stalwart Jay Yelas.

Bags approaching (or even exceeding) 25 pounds were anticipated from the famed impoundment, but chilly conditions appear to have slowed the bite as only six competitors topped the 15-pound threshold. The air temperature didn't get out of the 40s today and a stiff wind blew from the northeast.

Yelas caught 18-08 to grab the No. 2 position. Brian Branum is 3rd with 16-13.

Here are the numbers for the initial Top 10:

1. Ray Hanselman: 21-05
2. Jay Yelas: 18-08
3. Brian Branum: 16-13
4. James Stricklin Jr.: 15-15
5. Robert Case: 15-05
6. Keith Combs: 15-01
7. Larry Nixon: 14-07
8. Chris McCall: 14-05
9. Jim Phillips: 14-03
10. Albert Collins: 13-06
