BASS tourney reaches semis

With a catch of 25 pounds, 13 ounces — including a 9-15 kicker largemouth — 19-year-old angler Skylar Hamilton from Dandridge, Tenn., topped the list of the 10 competitors who won the right on Friday to advance to Saturday’s round of BASSfest competition on Chickamauga Lake in Dayton, Ohio.

He and nine other anglers will rejoin the top 50 from the opening two days who will battle in a semifinal round today for 12 spots in Sunday’s final. Among them is tournament leader Jacob Wheeler, Jason Christie of Park Hill and Tommy Biffle of Wagoner, all of whom drew a bye on Friday.
