Finishing atop the field in today’s event were Bryan Roland of Brentwood and Mike Bryant of Discovery Bay. Bryant, who is definitely on a role, caught a TOAD, weighing 16.1 pounds earlier in the week and with his partners help wiped to the field clean by bringing in a 5 fish limit that cleared the scales at 40.19 pounds. Not bad for a fun week of fishing, resulting in a victory by over 12 pounds. When asked about their success, Roland told everyone at the awards, they used heave jigs in a black/blue combination and to no ones surprise, their two 10 pound kickers (including 3rd big fish of the day, a 10.27) came on Mission Fish Swimbaits. He also stated the best fishing is in the South Delta when the current is just starting to move. For their reward, the guys received a pair of nice trophies from the Hook, Line and Sinker and took home $5740. Congratulations to Mike and Bryan on what many would feel was the fishing day of a lifetime.
Second place went to a couple of young guns on the trail, Brothers, Nick and Thomas Kanemoto of Elk Grove. These guys are definitely up and coming and they showed there stuff on Saturday with a 5 fish limit weighing in at 26.49 pounds. Anchoring their bag was the 2nd biggest fish of the day, another beauty weighing 10.39 pounds. After the event we had a chance to talk and Nick said they also flipped a lot of fish on Black / Blue Jigs but the better fish came on Red RattleTraps fishing in the Middle Delta. I would imagine this is one of their best paydays as anglers, as they took home $2840 and again a pair of those nice plaques from the Hook.
Third place went to long time favorites, John Hewatt of Danville and Pete Rehrmann of Concord. They also had a big fish, weighing 10.12 pounds and their 5 fish tipped the scales at 26.48 pounds. John and Pete have been fishing together for many year and again showed the value of working together. John flipped a Senko or a jig while Peter tossed a Mission Fish swimbait all day long. They told us they never left the Franks Tract area, which means very little running and more time with your line in the water. $1670 was the take home for Pete and John but I sure they valued those HOOK trophies also.
Forth place went to pro anglers Ken Schmitt of Livermore and John Harper of Sunol. With 26.17 pounds, again anchored by a 10.09 pound bass, these guys took home $1195, while the fifth place award of $815 went to Mark Smith of Richmond and Matthew Smith of San Francicso.
