    I'm sure Jerry will be posting all the results soon and I'm not usually one to post pictures, but thought I would share this photo of my partner and myself from the BAIT Mid-Buckeye Sandusky Bay open Sunday as an illustration of what Lake Erie has to offer. It got pretty rough and we got a little wet but we managed to get to them (and back). The two bigger ones are both close to 5.5.

    Would love to say it was good for a win but to be the man you got to beat the man, so we happily took home a close second to a relatively obscure local by the name of Steve Clapper. Hats off to him, a great angler and a true class act.

    Great job to the BAIT guys for a smooth event and what more can you say about Lake Erie.

    Nice job Brian and Mike. It must of been a pleasure to fish against Steve Clapper. I would have loved to been there. Of course you made a good run but after the stren series Clapper was tough to beat but looks like you gave him a run for his money. Congrats. Sure looks like you had a ton of fun.

    Thanks guys. Everytime I go I come back with "erie on the brain". Already thinking about when I can get back. The largie fishing is awesome up there too. There were a couple good bags of those brought in that I saw and the one missing from our picture was a nice 3+green bass as well. As far as a combination of numbers and quality I don't know if there is a better location in the state for largemouth than the rivers, bays and harbors off Erie.

    Marshall you are right. And Clapper is the nicest guy. I have seen him around BFLs and stuff in the past but this was the first time I had a chance to talk to him.

    Maybe Phil should have the wildcard up there (since we cant talk him into Muskingum)!
     
  8. Wow guys great job! I really wanted to fish that one but I was in Canada fishing all week :)

    See you at Delaware Brian!
