Hunter Zona and Ben Harrison continued their domination of the Arjay’s Wednesday night circuit with a big win at Lake Templene.
The winners had five fish tipping the scales at 14.03 pounds that included big bass of the event, a 4.26 largemouth, they caught on the last cast of the night. They caught them on Ochos and creature baits.
The father-son team of Mickey and Bo Thomas won the Southwest Michigan Anglers Club weeknight tournament on Donell Lake last week.
The winners used 9K jigs and C Flash 44 crankbaits to catch a limit weighing 13.03 pounds.
Abu Garcia is forging a new path with connected rod technology as it rolls out the new Abu Garcia Virtual, a fishing rod with Bluetooth technology that fully integrates with the free ANGLR smartphone app. The new series of rods allow anglers to record catches and mark waypoints in their personal and private logbook with the simple press of a button integrated into the butt of the rod.

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.
