One of only 2 anglers to bring a limit to the scales, Collins weighed in 5 fish that totaled 13.79 lbs including a chunky 4.79-pounder. He was surrounded in the tournament standings by a couple of other Midlands anglers. Lugoff’s Steve Phillips took 2nd place in the event with 15.45 lbs, and was the other angler to bring 5 bass to the weigh-in. Wayne King of Sumter took 4th place, weighing in 3 fish for 10.56 lbs.
