The second stop for the Polar Bear Opens on Wawasee started out with a solid breeze out of the Southwest and temperatures in the mid-20s and anglers battled ice in the rod guides until around 11 o’clock. The day gradually warmed up to about 40 degrees, but that didn’t heat up the fishing for most of the competitors.
Mature bucks are on the move just in time for the popular firearm season that opens Friday in Michigan and Saturday in Indiana.
That’s pretty evident with the number of racks being displayed on social media by proud Michiana bow hunters the past couple of weeks.

HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Scott Canterbury began this week’s Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship on Lake St. Clair with a nine-point lead in the season standings.
He wobbled a bit during Sunday’s opening round due to technical problems and fell briefly into third place. But after a nice rebound Monday, the crown is once again his to lose.
Canterbury, a Bassmaster Elite Series newcomer from Odenville, Ala., caught five bass Monday that weighed 21 pounds, 13 ounces and pushed his two-day total to 39-8. That places him in 16th place for the week, but restores him to a slim lead in the AOY Championship season standings with a total of 846 points.
With one day left to fish, Texas pro Chris Zaldain (842) is in second, followed by Arkansas pro Stetson Blaylock (840), Canadian Cory Johnston (838) and Brandon Lester (814) of Tennessee.
“Yesterday was a real a struggle for me, but I rebounded today,” said Canterbury, who fished all day Sunday without the use of depthfinders on the front of his boat. “After yesterday, I felt like I needed to catch 20 pounds each of these last two days. I got 21 pounds today, and I’ll still like my chances if I can catch 20 more pounds tomorrow.
