Kreiger maintains Ouachita lead

Kreiger maintains Ouachita lead

A 7-09 sack today kept Koby Kreiger atop the leaderboard at the EverStart Championship on the Ouachita River out of Monroe, La. He'll carry a half-pound lead over hard-charging Brandon Medlock into the final day.

ďI have a lot of work ahead of me,Ē said Kreiger. ďObviously Brandon Medlock is the angler to beat. He is sitting on a good school of fish, the kind that itís going to take to win and I am not sure my fish will produce a double-digit bag, but Iím going to do everything I can.

ďI had a lot of bites today, but for some reason they were all short strikes. I donít know, I think I'm going to have to try a different bait presentation to get the bigger ones to bite. Iíve been doing pretty much the same thing all week, starting in the bayous, hitting the river mid-day and then finishing in the bayous. I've been using homemade crankbaits, CP Lures and today I got a couple of keepers on the Alabama Rig.

Medlock had a breakdown on day 1 and only brought in one bass that weighed 1-04. Since then he's been on a tear, bringing in the heaviest sack of the tournament on day 2, and followed that up with 12-13 today.

Here are the totals for the 10 anglers who'll compete on the final day:

1. Koby Kreiger: 29-00
2. Brandon Medlock: 28-08
3. (tie) Joseph Kremer: 25-04
3. (tie) Kent Ware: 24-04
5. Larry Jones: 25-03
6. Dan Morehead: 24-12
7. Bill Chapman: 24-12
8. (tie) James Stricklin Jr.: 24-03
8. (tie) Robbie Dodson: 24-03
10. Casey Martin: 23-00
