The bite continued to be tough yet improved for quite a few of the Pros, but the top three remained the same with some shifting in order. Marianne Huskey weighed in 26.81 for a total of 41.66 to take the lead from Day One leader Scott Duncan by two pounds. Mark Brumbaugh is in third and will need 17 pounds tomorrow to equal Marianne Huskey’s two day weight. That could happen here.

Fourth place is Tom Kemos, just a pound behind Mark. Fifth is Gary Parsons, coming a a long way with 17.3 to take over a top ten position.

Sixth is Scott Allen, holding his top ten position going into the last day, seventh is Michael McMaken, eighth is Bruce Samson, Ninth is Ross Grothe, who fished using his kicker only after hitting a rock yesterday taking out his main engine.

Robert Blosser rounds out the top ten.

The weather turned sour this afternoon as rain fell steadily all through the weigh in, and it looks like rain tomorrow as well. Most of the Pros are applauding the rain, hoping it will dirty up the water a little and get the shallow fish a bit more active.

This event departs form the last day cut normally placing only the top 50% of the field due to the Can AM Challenge. The entire field will leave the Bay Mills casino Launch at 7:30 AM tomorrow morning.

Watch for interviews and morning action tomorrow morning at about 8 AM Central.
