In the midst of the battle between Free Bird and Sandman, team BAR South had quietly moved themselves into striking distance for a Final Sail victory, sitting in third place heading into the final day. Day Three belonged to Capt. Art Sapp and the BAR South crew. They got off to a hot start with five releases in the first half of the day and went on to release one more in the afternoon for a total of 11 releases in the tournament that would be enough to secure the victory and a $136,835 payday. Contender One battled back from a slow Day Two, releasing four fish on Day Three to claim second place overall in Final Sail and a check totaling $85,125.
