Alton Jones has a plan, and he’s sticking to it. After all, it’s taken the pro from Waco, Texas, into the lead for two days running at the March 17-20 Bassmaster Elite Series stop on the St. Johns River.
Yesterday (March 18), Jones brought in 22 pounds, 13 ounces, more than enough to repeat his Day One lead. His 49-6 total over two days put a distance of 7 pounds, 9 ounces, between him and J. Todd Tucker of Moultrie, Ga., who had 41-13 for second place. In third place with 40-0 was Terry Scroggins of Palatka, Fla., the hometown pro who has a rich history to tap into, and a seemingly infinite number of spots to go to up and down the river.
