Keewatin's Jeff "Gussy" Gustafson is sitting in the top 20 after Day 1 of the 2022 Guaranteed Rate Bassmaster Elite at Chickamauga Lake in Tennessee. 

Gussy finished the first day in 17th place after he caught five fish weighing a total of 17 pounds and four ounces. He is only 7 pounds and 8 ounces behind the current first-place holder Carl Jocumsen. 

A good day tomorrow will solidify Gustafson a spot in the top 47 anglers allowing him to fish on Saturday (April 9, 2022). 

Gustafson will regroup and take off for Day 2 at 7:30 a.m. CDT, with weigh-ins beginning at 3:30 p.m. CDT.
