A great day to be on the water!:) 98 teams participated in the 2nd opener of the season. Opener cancelled due to snow and ice on roads. Event paid 15 places and 3 Big Bass prizes. Bite was tough as 189 bass were weighed for a total weight of 317.13lbs. There was 8-6 bass limits weighed. ALL were treated and released alive. It took 7.98lbs to get a check. Here is the top 5 finishers and Big bass.

1st- Marty Salchak and Dale Corley :D 11.63 $1000.
also $800 split with tie on 2nd+3rd big bass 2.77lb $400.
also qualified for Ranger Cup bonus $1000.
2nd- Greg Doane and Ron Wyatt 11.49 $800.
3rd- Eric Scott and Eric Guinter 11.33 $600.
4th- Mark McQuate and Steve Hatfield 10.93 $500.
5th- Mel Balas and Randy King 10.73 $450.
:B Big Bass- Eric Evans 3.76 $1000.
other split with tie on 2+3 BB (2nd place team) 2.77 $400.
plus 10 other places ranging to $200 for 15th

Winning pattern is unknown but cranking small baits in mouths of coves was a big part of several top finishers. ;)
