Grand River - 7/21/18
Well, we lucked out in some regards for today's Grand River event, presented by Legend Sign Company. The forecast didn't look good, but the rain gear wasn't needed for most of the day, and the pleasure boaters were few and far between. Unfortunately, many struggled with the new pay system at the launch and some of us are still left wondering where the # sign is you're supposed to push in the process...
To the surprise of many, 4 boats finished with impressive total weights of over 17 lbs.! Winning the event were Grand Haven locals Norm Greene and Harv VanDeWeg, with a 17.76 lb. sack. Right on their heels in 2nd place were Ethan Lemmen and Nolan Cole, with their limit of largemouth weighing in at 17.46 lbs. Coming in 3rd were Brian Burmania and Don Watts, with an impressive 17.42 lbs. Today's Big Bass prizes went to Chad Nauta for his 4.37 lb. fatty, and Ethan Lemmen for his 4.35 lb. beauty.
Our final Classic Qualifier, presented by Quiet Cove Baits, will be on Muskegon Lake on 8/11/18 - see you there!
