Event 6 of 7 for the 2017-2018 season proved to be a formidable one. Anglers monitored the wind forecast for the weekend trying to set out a game plan for participation and success. Some made alternative plans versus risking Lake Havasu rollers and the others let out the battle cry, “Fish on!” The morning started off with a steady breeze and made progressive gains after 10 o’clock. As the first flight of the day began to make it into the marina conceding their efforts to the clock, stronger wind gusts had become more consistent and the norm. A few of the teams found themselves to be less than dry.
Ted Stewner and Al Carlson lead all teams with 19.65 and a 4.61 kicker. The Canadian team fished fast covering a great deal of water during the day. The past two time Canadian Fort Frances Champions and a host of top 10 finishes over the past several years gave the team a small amount of anonymity among other anglers, but they are on the radar now. 2nd place went to a familiar team of Matt Shura and Lon Armel with 18.48 and a 5.61 kicker. Via a Bass Junkyz contingency, Team Shura/Armel were able to add an additional $500 in Nitro Bass Pro Tournament Rewards. Following in third, Justin Kerr and Tim Rath with 18.28 and a 4.37 and in fourth place, Kyle Grover and Garrett Howard with 16.98 with a solid 4.67 in the mix.
Next event is at Lake Pleasant on April 7th and with our Sponsor Expo. All of the Bass Junkyz 2017-2018 sponsors have been invited to participate in the event giving opportunity for the anglers and sponsors to come together around one of the best event series here in the Southwest, Bass Junkyz.
