LUFKIN, Texas, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seasoned veteran Walmart pro Mark Rose of West Memphis, Ark., brought a five-bass limit to the scale on Friday weighing 19 pounds, 2 ounces to snatch the lead after day two of the Walmart FLW Tour at Sam Rayburn Reservoir presented by Chevy. Anchored by a monster 9-pound Sam Rayburn largemouth, Rose now has a two-day total of 10 bass worth 43 pounds even. He will hold a narrow 1-pound, 9 ounce lead going into day three of the four-day event, presented by the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau, that features 176 of the world's best bass-fishing anglers competing for a top cash award of up to $125,000.
"I really struggled today," said Rose, who has earned more than $1.75 million dollars in FLW competition. "Most of the 19 pounds that I weighed in was the big 9-pounder. I didn't catch but seven fish all day today, and one was a little 12-inch spotted bass.
"I'm fishing the outside and inside edges of grass lines," Rose continued. "When the weather is calm and sunny like today, they get buried up in the grass. I'm going to do the same thing tomorrow, but I'm going to pray for some clouds and wind."
Rose said that he was fishing around 15 different areas throwing a lot of plastics, crankbaits and a Strike King Red-Eye Shad. He said that most of the fish that he is catching are post-spawn.
"Most of my fish that I'm weighing in are post-spawn," the Arkansas pro said. "But, it seems like every day I'm weighing in one big pre-spawner. Even in practice I would catch one big pre-spawn bass each day.
"I'm pretty committed to this pattern," said Rose. "I may just have to adapt a little better and get in the grass and figure out how to catch them."

This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
