Ted Takasaki on Day Two

The Missouri River levels fell an additional eight inches for Day Two of the 2008 FLW Championship, compounding the already tricky 40+ mile drive to Lake Oahe. Air temps in the forties cooled the surface temps overnight, which put fish in upper Lake Oahe on the move.

Ted Takasaki backed up his impressive 17 lb basket on Day One with another 16-lbs 11 oz on Day Two to lead all anglers in to the finals with 34 lbs 6 oz.

Todd Riley weighed 24+ on Day Two

Todd Riley shot out of the pack with a monster bag weighing 24 lbs to qualify in second. Tommy Skarlis rebounded similarly on Day Two, posting 19 lbs 3oz to qualify in third.

Brett King added to his 17 lbs on Day One with 13-11 on Day Two to qualify in fourth.

The remaining qualifiers are as follows:

Ross Grothe – fifth
Joe Okada – sixth
Todd Frank – seventh
Robert Blosser – eighth
Tom Keenan – ninth
Chris Gilman – tenth

Co-anglers advancing are:

Dick Wherry
Terry Etzkorn
David Anderson
Cal Van Cleve
Del Ringling
Fred Gordon
Patrick Bertelsen
Nate Brunz
Boyd Strissel
Scott Woodward

Day One leader Ron Seelhoff finished two spots out of the cut, weighing just over 8 lbs on Day Two.

The FLW Finals consists of a two-day cumulative weight shootout; weights from days one and two are discarded and all anglers start at zero. The co-angler champion will be crowned after the third day of competition.

Toyota Rewards are still hotly contested; Takasaki and Gilman are both Tundra owners battling it out for an additional $3,000.00 in contingencies.

FLW Walleye Tour Finals coverage continues tomorrow morning, and live coverage of the weigh-in begins at 4:30 PM CST.
