Haynes has brought a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 57 pounds even to the scales, which gives him a commanding 8-pound, 7-ounce lead over
Straight Talk Wireless pro J.T. Kenney of Palm Bay, Fla.
, who caught five bass today weighing 14 pounds, 3 ounces. Kenney has weighed in 15 bass totaling 48 pounds, 9 ounces in his three days of competition.
"It was different out there for me today," said Haynes, who won the FLW EverStart series tournament just two weeks ago on Pickwick Lake. "Some of my holes that I had been fishing dried up, but I caught a couple in some new places today. I'm lucky that the bites that I had today were better bites. I hadn't caught one over 4 pounds this week, but I weighed in three over 4 pounds today."
Haynes, known widely for his ledge-fishing prowess, is fishing his style in this event and targeting the off-shore ledges using a wide arsenal of baits.
"I only have five or six different areas that I make sure that I always hit," Haynes said. "I'm throwing several different baits, but I've got a couple of them that I'm really dialed in on."
