Well, today felt more like a July tournament than Memorial Day weekend, with temps well into the 80's and stagnant air for the 2018 opener, presented by Brian Tagg Home Sales of Greater Grand Rapids. Luckily, the storms that were predicted never materialized and we were able to stay dry and enjoy some dogs and drinks provided by long-time sponsor Bleeker Insurance of Big Rapids.
The bite was tough for many, and it came down to the fraction of a pound to separate 1st and 2nd place. Claiming victory with a tie-breaking 3.58 lb. big bass were Jeff and Aaron Denny, whose total weight was 14.87 lbs. Right behind them were Wes Woodard and Tim Eaton, also with a total weight of 14.87 lbs. and a big bass of 3.57 lbs., a difference of just .01 lbs! Rounding out 3rd place were Ed Dyer and Roger Riemersma, with a total weight of 14.61 lbs.
Today's top prize for big bass went to Randy Bleeker for a plump 5.50 lb. largemouth. The 2nd biggest bass for the day, weighing in at 4.07 lbs., was brought in by Kelly Geertman.
