The conditions on Green Bay were absolutely perfect today for most of the pros; the proof is evident examining the top ten CRR totals, and the record catch turned in by the AIM Green Bay day one leader, Lund/Mercury Pro Perry Good. It took 46.97 to make the top ten, and just over 50# to carry a top five.
Perry Good tops the AIM leader board on day one with a seven fish limit converting to 55.17 pounds. Perry’s big fish was the AIM record at 13 pounds plus and 32″ in length. His 55.17 day one Green Bay weight is also an all time AIM record.
Local Pro Pat Neu is only three pounds behind at 52.02, and is confident in his bite holding tomorrow despite the winds forecast to be into the 20’s out of the South West. Gary Parsons is in third with 51.69, and also is confident in his bite holding despite the increasing winds forecast for days two and three.
Jim Carroll is in fourth, continuing his hot streak with a seven fish limit converting to 50.71. Jim Petersen is in fifth with 50.64, Todd Riley in sixth with 49.11, Robert Blosser in seventh with 48.93, Tom Gatzke in eighth with 48.34, Mike Gofron in ninth with 47.31, and Tom Kemos rounds out the top ten with 46.97.
The cut to the final field of 33 on the last day Saturday, should the bite remain as it was on day one, will be about 75 pounds. The winds will definitely be a factor for the Pros, especially those who are traveling out to the North.
The majority of the fish CRR’d today were caught trolling spinners. Cranks accounted for a number of the fish as well, and the depths and structure ranged from very shallow weed edges to deep, open water pods of fish relating to clouds of baitfish.
The field of 66 will leave the docks South Bay Marina at the mouth of the Fox tomorrow at 7:30 AM. Watch for AIM’s signature video coverage to begin early tomorrow morning!
