Jim Carroll, day one leader at the Anglers Insight Marketing Bay Mills Invitational, went right back to his big blue/big fish bite, hoping for four bites. Just like yesterday, he got two, but lost one up on the top and boated the other, a 29. The result was a drop to fifth place, but all the Pros are going to worry about Jim’s bite tomorrow except perhaps for one, Nisswa Minnesota’s Rich Boggs.
Rich moved into first today and holds close to an 11 pound lead over second place Scott Duncan. Rich ‘ground it out’ today, and added his Day Two weight of 24.50 pounds to yesterday’s weight of 22.26 to take the lead with 46.76 pounds.
If it wasn’t for the much better bite and the 24.50 weight today by Rich Boggs, Scott Duncan would be in the spotlight, moving up to second with the Bay Mills Invitational events biggest CRR total through day two of 25.31. Scott said he’s pretty confident his fish will go tomorrow, and there are only one half the pros on the water after the cut so room will not be an issue.
Brandon Carpenter held true to his prediction yesterday evening, and put 7 on his CRR card for a weight of 15.41 to total 34.84 and hold third place going into the cut. Gary Parsons also held his own, registering 16.16 pounds today to take over fourth with a total of 34.45, hot on Carpenter’s tail just a fraction of a pound out of third.
Day one leader Jim Carroll is in fifth with three fish weighing 33.74, local favorite Dane Stanaway is in sixth with 29.53, Greg Yarbrough is in seventh with 25.65, Ron Seelhoff in eighth with 24.89, Michael Mcmaken holds ninth with 24.39, and Keith Kavajecz rounds out the top ten with 24.24.
Other ‘movers and shakers’ included Jason Przekurat who rocketed out of the bottom few to eleventh weighing 17.36 for seven and Tommy Skarlis who moved to twelfth with only two fish today, but they weighed in at 14.87.
The field was cut to 22 tomorrow and will leave the Bay Mills Resort and Casino landing at 8 AM in the morning. The top 22 are fishing for one of the best payouts in Pro Walleye fishing this year.
