Top finishers for this day were long time supporters Ron Stam of Citrus Heights and Andy Loberg Rocklin. Their 7 fish weighed in at 28.51 pounds and included the 3 biggest fish of the day, a real nice 7.36 pound largemouth. Andy talked about how they pre-fished for 5 days and it showed in their performance. Using a technique mostly used at the local lakes, he told everyone at the awards, they Ripped all their fish in less than 2 ft of water and didn’t a gallon of gas all day (that’s a hint, they fished in Big Break). I’m sure that will open some eyes, as most people reported flipping fish and fishing a little deeper. For their efforts, they received a pair a trophies sponsored by local tackle outlet, “The Hook” and a check for $1535. Congratulations To Ron and Andy on kicking off the season with a great effort.
Second place went to Brentwood’s JD Madden and Todd Siegfried with a 7 fish limit of 28.11 lbs. They also had a nice kicker fish, a 7.58 pound bass that was the second largest fish of the day. When asked how they caught their fish, they said “Senkos and Blades, the secret was Slow, Slow, Slow”. If your moved your bait to fast, they just wouldn’t eat it. Madden also said they never left the Big Break area and just hopped around as things changed. JD wanted to thank McCoy line, Rodstainer, and St. Croix for their support. For their efforts they took home trophies and a check for $1515.
Third place went to Oakley’s Bobby Delameter and Mike Andrews. Their 7 fish weighed 25.84 but the real story was the first cast of the day. With a Speed Trap in had, Bobby latched on to a 12.55 pound bucketmouth that was not only big fish of the day, but was the largest fish of his life. Great job Bobby D. He also said they fished local (Near Big Break) and caught the rest of the fish this day on Custom Bobby D Jig, exclusively sold at “The Hook”. They took home $1195, which included the big fish pot.
Finishing in forth was Sacramento’s Larry Noss and Clarksburg’s Dean Grzelak with very respectable 25.78. Their 7 fish was worth $690 while the fifth place check of $300 dollars went to Stockton’s Gary Howell and Elk Groves Ken Mah.
