Rookie and seasoned pro vie for top spot at Toledo Bend

Jacob Powroznik

Powroznik added 23-6 Friday to his Thursday weight of 24-14 for a two-day total of 48-4.

MANY, La. — Bassmaster Elite Series rookie Jacob Powroznik had been to Toledo Bend Reservoir just once before he came to the May 1-4 Evan Williams Bourbon Bassmaster Elite.

Dean Rojas has a wealth of experience on the lake; his 2011 Bassmaster Elite Series victory on Toledo Bend proved that.

Yet these polar opposites — at least when it comes to the famed big-bass factory on the Louisiana-Texas border — were the top two anglers after Friday, the second day of competition.

And it was the rookie who led the veteran; Powroznik had 3 pounds, 7 ounces on Rojas.

Powroznik, who is from Port Haywood, Va., added 23-6 Friday to his Thursday weight of 24-14 for a two-day total of 48-4. He inched up from third place to take the lead.

Rojas climbed from 14th place into second by setting 24-15 on the scales, the day’s largest five-bass limit. His two-day total was 44-13.
