Allen does it again at Amistad
DEL RIO, Texas — Bookend 18-pound limits for two days has put Randy Allen in the driver’s seat at the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Central Open on Lake Amistad.
The former Bassmaster Elite Series pro backed up Thursday’s 18-pound limit with an 18-3 limit Friday to retain the lead in the pro division with 36-3. “It’s just been one of those weeks and when it is your time, it is your time,” said Allen, who knows he has to keep up the pace because of Amistad’s reputation.
“Saturday, you could see 20-pound sacks come in and I just hope I can hang in there with them.”
This morning Allen was unfazed by the pressure of leading the event.
“I just thought it was incredible to be in first,” he said. “It was the first time it has ever happened to me so I just wanted to go out and have fun and go catch fish. I had no reason to get upset and stressed out over it.”
