The Ohio Walleye Federation held its second central basin circuit qualifier sponsored by Vic’s Sports Center out of Geneva, OH on July 13th. Tournament format allowed for up to 4 person teams with a 6 rod limit per boat. Lake Erie is known for big waves and big fish and it did not disappoint. 48 teams participated in the event with 18 teams brining 5 fish bags to the scale topping 40lbs. The team of Brett Berkey, Joe Bird and Todd Johnson took top honors and the $3000 1st place prize with an impressive 43.04lb bag narrowly beating out the second place team of Beran, Beran, Barto and Fayteik by less than .2lbs. Less than 2lbs separated the top 10 teams with over 41lbs needed to cash a check. Most of the teams in the top 10 fished 10-20 miles North East of Geneva in 70-73ft of water. Worm harnesses fished on in-line weights and dipsy divers seemed to be the most popular presentation targeting 35 – 45 ft down. Berkey, Johnson and Bird also won the top placing Vic’s Customer bonus and the Ranger Cup bonus. The team of Leigh, Leigh, Leigh and Leigh won the highest placing family team bonus sponsored by Vic’s sports center. The team of Lynch, Schiavoni and Russo claimed big fish with a 10.52lb monster.

All teams who participated in either of the first two CBC qualifiers are eligible to fish the OWF championship out of Ashtabula, OH on August 10th and 11th. More details and complete results can be found at www.FishOWF.com
