Spohrer climbs from 10th to 1st at Red River

Gerald Spohrer caught a 15-09 sack on day 2 to jump from 10th place to the lead at the Red River Bassmaster Central Open with a 2-day total of 28-14. He'll take a 6-ounce lead over defending champion and Bassmaster Elite Series Stephen Browning into the final day.

"I spent my whole practice fishing stuff where I thought the tournament would be won, said Spohrer, a resident of nearby Gonzales, La. I know this river very well and I have a lot of experience here. I gambled and found some sweet spots that were holding some big ones.

The change in weather from clouds and wind Thursday to sunshine and a light breeze on Friday made it easier for the 32-year-old Spohrer to work his area. He's flipping to woody cover and said the sun positioned the fish on the stumps.

Here are the totals for the 12 final-day qualifiers:

1. Gerald Spohrer: 28-14
2. Stephen Browning: 28-08
3. Jeff Kriet: 27-08
4. Aaron Johnson: 27-07
5. Tommy Murray: 26-00
6. Colby Hand: 25-06
7. Kylie Sparks: 25-06
8. Marvin Ettredge: 25-02
9. John Frye: 23-13
10. Caleb Boudreaux: 23-01
11. Chad Wiley: 22-10
12. Keith Combs: 22-09
