Voting ends at the end of the day on Wednesday.

LeBlue’s entry shows a big Grand Bayou 8-pounder.

“My wife and I were prefishing for a tournament on Grand Bayou,” he explained. “We hadn’t been on the water for more than 20 minutes when I caught a nice 4-pound fish.

“About 10 casts later, I caught his 8-pounder.”

The fish was released.

Wilbanks entered a photo of him with a double-digit Toledo Bend sow.

“I caught this 10 ¾ (pounder) on March 6 …,” he said. “She fell for a Carolina-rigged worm in 5 feet of water. My cousin Zach netted the fish for me, and asked, ‘What is the biggest one I had ever caught,’ and I replied, ‘That one right there.’

“I was shaking so bad I had to sit down in my boat and get myself back together. Man, what a rush.”

The final entry by Yerger shows the LouisianaSportsman.com user holding two fish that combined for aweigh of at least 14 pounds.

“I left work at 12:30 on a Friday afternoon to do a little fishing on Caddo Lake,” Yerger wrote. “I have been on some good fish, so with the full week of warm weather I figured the bite would be on.

“I had five bites total and boated four, and all were within 10 minutes of each other. My total weight was 27 (pounds) plus with two 7 (pound) plus kicker fish.”
