Scott Duncan weighed 26.38 pounds today to take the lead over second place Mark Brumbaugh by almost ten pounds. Marianne Huskey holds third with 14.85 pounds.
The bite slowed for most of the Pros today as a monster cold front moved through and moved the fish out of the areas they had been the most active during pre-fish. The Can AM Challenge is an artificial only event, and most of the Pros reported they were trolling cranks for the action that did occur today.
The CRR virtual weigh in attracted a good crowd in cool temps under sunny skies. The field of 61 Pros are fishing for a top prize of $40,000.00.
Fourth place is held by Scott Allen with 8.84. Fifth is Tom Kemos with 8.34, sixth is Bruce Samson, seventh is Mike Gofron, eighth is Dane Stanaway, ninth is tommy Skarlis, and rounding out tenth place is Geoff Stadnyk.
Tomorrow looks like rain and winds out of the NE at 13, and Saturday looks like rain again and winds picking up a bit out of the NW. Most of the Pros said they were hoping for the sun to shine and temps to climb. Exactly the opposite looks to be the case, but the darker skies and front coming through may fire up the bite.
The field will leave Bay Mills tomorrow morning at 7:30 AM, and will weigh in again, live, on aimfishing.com beginning at 5PM. Watch www.aimfishing.com for morning interviews and images beginning at approximately 8 AM Central.
