The bite was better today overall, while Brett King rocked the house by extending his lead to 22 pounds over 2010 JJ Keller Angler of the Year, Robert Blosser. Robert weighed the day’s heaviest limit at 30.38 pounds for a total of 33.79. Brett weighed in a CRR total of 29.02 to take what can only be described as a commanding, but not completely impossible to beat lead at 55.59.
Mike Gofron continued his consistent top ten performance trends holding third place with 31.25. Mike has more top ten finishes than any other walleye angler in history. ‘Young Gun’ Joe Okada holds fourth with 29.2. Fifth is held by veteran angler Ross Grothe with 27.15.
Sixth is held by Jim Carroll, Seventh by Tommy Skarlis, Eighth by Matt Corradi, Ninth by Dane Stanaway, and the top ten is rounded out with Tenth place angler Ron Gordon.
The field of Pros was cut to the top 16 today. It took 9.43 pounds to make the cut. Every pro in the top ten is guaranteed a cash payout at the Bay Mills Invitational, one of the highest paying events in Walleye Angling’s recent history, paying back over 200 percent of entries. Top prize is guaranteed at $40,000.00.
The weather tomorrow looks to be a bit wet, but warmer, which is desirable according to all the Pros to ‘get the bite back’ to pre-fish levels before a monster cold front shut down the walleyes for Day One. The sixteen pros and Co Anglers leave the docks at 7:30 AM Eastern, and the live, online weigh in begins at 4:30 Eastern.
