1st Place: Despite 57 participating teams, only 4 limits were brought to the scales. Leading the way was Randy Ramsey and Trevor Jancasz with a 15.15 pound limit to win $685.
The winners landed 9 keepers between 12-25 feet of water with a trio of baits: Erie Darters matched up with 1/4 ounce leadheads, 3/8 Denny Brauer Strike King jigs, and 3" Strike King Shadalicious swimbaits.
2nd Place: Tracy Coates and Michael Hamilton fell just shy of victory with a 15.03 pound limit of largemouth. Still they pocketed $430 for their efforts.
They fooled their fish with the combination of Silver Buddy blade baits and Rapala perch colored jerkbaits.
3rd Place: Brian Whitaker and Brandon Elliott (not pictured) caught 7 keepers on their way to a 9.91 sack to snatch up $320. Despite securing an early limit by twitching jerkbaits around weeds on a flat between 9-10 feet, they were not able to upgrade with a kicker.
Big Bass Award: Wawasee legend Chip Harrison and Joe Settler landed a 4.61 pound largemouth to win $455.
