Gustafson @ ABC

Bryan Gustafson showed off part of the 22.49 lbs in his team's day two bag at the Atikokan Bass Classic. It was the third biggest one-day haul in the tournament, which he and fishing partner, Jon Austin, won in 2014. The big catch vaulted them from 10th place to first—for about 30 minutes.
