Rojas Back In The Lead

Orange, TX – After leading the first day of the Bassmaster Elite Series stop on the Sabine River, Arizona’s Dean Rojas dropped to 2nd place on Friday as Todd Faircloth took over the top spot on the leaderboard.  On Saturday, Rojas regained his position at the top in front of an impressive crowd gathered to watch the weigh-in in Orange, Texas.   

With a limit weighing 11-14, Rojas pushed his three day total weight to 38-6, and will enter championship Sunday with a lead of 3 pounds, 9 ounces over Todd Faircloth, who dropped to 2nd after only managing four keepers on Saturday weighing 7-14 for a total weight of 34-13.  

Eight of the 50 remaining anglers blanked on Saturday, including Cliff Crochet, who entered the day in 3rd place.  Not a single angler was able to break the 12-pound mark even though 16 anglers crossed the stage with a five bass limit. Read Complete Story

Rojas Regains Lead With 11-14, Faircloth 2 1/2 Back

Just when they thought the fishing couldn’t get much tougher, the Sabine River system clamped down a little tighter today, giving up just five stringers of more than 10 pounds.

Dean Rojas was among that select group as he caught an 11-14 bag (tied for the heaviest of the day) that propelled him back into the lead with 1 day remaining in the Elite Series season opener. His 38-06 total is a shade over 2 1/2 pounds better than Todd Faircloth, the day-2 leader whose four fish today weighed 7-14 and gave him 34-13.

Rojas is chasing his third career Elite Series win while Faircloth is after his fourth victory.

Ish Monroe, who also owns two Elite Series trophies, continued his steady surge up the standings as he jumped from 6th to 3rd with a 9-15 effort that ran his weight to 31-11. Terry Scroggins caught 7-01 (three fish) and held onto 4th with 31-06 while Jeff Kriet jumped into the Top 5 with a 9-pound limit that gave him 30-06 Read Complete Story

1st Place: Dean Rojas (15-10)

What were your expectations heading into the day?
“Just to catch five keepers. Based on practice, I felt like today was going to be a grind, but I also felt like catching a limit was doable.  As it turned out, the keepers came a little bit quicker than I had expected.” 

How would you summarize your day as a whole? 
“I made a long run and was able to get to where I needed to go.  I also was able to execute my bites and I didn’t lose any quality fish today and everything turned out really well.  I caught my fifth keeper at around 11:15 and I only had four or five short fish in the mix. I got in a total of about six hours of fishing time today.” Read Complete Story
