FORT GIBSON LAK, OK -- Dozens of professional anglers are in Green Country for the Bassmasters Elite series Sooner Run fishing tournament. Home field advantage seems to be paying off for a Wagoner man.

Tommy Biffle is leading the pack, averaging 20 pounds a day.

"That's what I'm shooting for about 20 pounds a day," Biffle said. "I thought between 75 and 80 would win it. So, I'm gonna catch all I can catch, but I'm not gonna slow down till I get 20 or so."

The competition ends on Sunday, with the winner taking home $100,000.
