The leader board did indeed scramble today as predicted onstage yesterday by many of the Pro teams, but for quite a few of the teams the bite didn’t improve despite the more stable weather. Trolling is still the preferred method, and the key still is finding the right fish. Many of the Teams are on really good fish, and manage to get a couple to bite, but in order to cash a Top Five check in this AIM event, one needs to catch at least 4 big fish a day and fill the 7 fish limit, with one walleye preferably qualified by the Team as a ‘kicker’.
Kemos and Kemos did just that. They CRR’d 34.21 yesterday, and pounded ’em today CRRing 50.42 to take the lead by a bit over a pound over second place Dempsey and Goecks, who put two strong and consistent days together.
Third, just 3.5 pounds back, is Kolinski and Hornes, making their move into the top five on Day Two. Blosser and Blosser moved into fourth by virtue of two near 40 pound days. Okada and Okada are in fifth in a near tie with Blosser and Blosser.
Sixth is held by Wertepny and Seidl, seventh is Good and Borstad, eighth is Neu and Neu, ninth is Cardenas and Mickish, Day One leaders, and Omelina and Hogan round out the top ten.
The weather tomorrow looks stable, with a chance of a thundershower and SE winds to 8 MPH.
The Teams will leave tomorrow at 7:30 AM, and will be back in at 3:30 for the AIM virtual live weigh in. Make sure to tune in to http://www.aimfishing.com for the live weigh in tomorrow evening, and join us tomorrow morning for interviews with the leaders, live reports from the water, and much more.
The first AIM pro team event ever has drawn what is also AIM’s largest field to date, and the Pro teams and Co Anglers are talking about how enjoyable the format is, hoping for a repeat next year at Oconto because of the teemendous fishing, and becuase of the ability to fish with a family member, friend, or another Pro or Co angler. Keith Kavajecz, while weighing in on the stage, said he hopes to see AIM schedule more of the Pro team Challenge series style of events for 2013.
