After Day one Lock Jaw Bass Club was in the lead with their ten best bass weighing in at 32.08 pounds compared to the Twin Cities Team Club's weight of 28.97 pounds of fish. Lock Jaw was in the lead by 3.11 pounds. As you can see from the averages this lead could be shattered by one fish though. So day two started very even.

Total two day weight for the Lock Jaw Bass Club was 47.91 pounds while the Twin Cities Team Club put together a two day total of 55.41 pounds.
