Jeff Chase@@Real_Jeff_ChaseSenior Analyst IIFebruary 25, 2012

After finishing a tough day one in eighth place at the Bassmaster Classic, Edwin Evers came back strong on day two with a total weigh-in of 14.4 lbs, which included a tournament-high catch of 6.4 lbs.

Evers is looking to capture his first-ever Bassmaster classic title, and is certainly making the moves to make his way to the top as he is currently sitting in fifth place, as his tournament weight totals at 30.7 lbs.

He stands behind guys like Chris Lane, Greg Vinson, Alton Jones and Bobby Lane, but as we have seen, the leaderboard has been quite fluid.

It will remain to be seen what day three will hold for Evers, but he is looking like he has the ability to continue to climb the board.

He is going to have to hope to find a good spot tomorrow, and potentially score more big fish in his efforts to get that first prestigious Bassmaster title.

He has some strong contenders sitting behind him, including back-to-back champion Kevin VanDam.

The four-time champion is sitting in 18th place, which is nine spots above where he was after day one. While he is far off, it is fishers like this that are breathing down Evers' back that could trump him when the tournament is all said and done.

Evers will have to make a strong push tomorrow, and if he can, he will be in a good position to win this tournament.
