CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The fishing at Lake Wylie got tougher yesterday in the Bassmaster Classic, which means that any number of competitors have a chance to win the $200,000 top prize today.

Dean Rojas of Grand Saline, Texas, who was third Friday, moved into first by catching five fish weighing a total of 10 pounds, 12 ounces for a two-day total of 26-4. First-day leader Takahiro Omori of Emory, Texas, who caught 16-2 on Friday, had five fish weighing 9-8 yesterday to slip to second place at 25-10.

Local favorite Jason Quinn of Clover, S.C., who guides on Lake Wylie, had 10-13 to move from seventh to third at 24-1.
