Polar Bear Report
Jeremy Bunnell and Lee Duracz captured another Polar Bear victory, winning on the St. Joseph River at 6 Span last weekend.
The winners ($500) had 8.76 pounds with for 4 overs. They caught all their fish in the main river channel around isolated cover in 12-17 feet. Most of the fish came on Ned Rigs, but they caught a few on blade baits and A-rigs. They said they lost a lot of fish as well.
Second place ($250) went to Jake Otto and girlfriend Kylla Vaillancourt with the only true limit of 4 overs and 1 under that weighed 8.70 pounds.
Eben Lambert and Joe Sears were third ($150) with 4 overs weighing 8.38 pounds.
Fourth place ($90) went to Trevor Paulus and Patrick Stines with 8.27 pounds.
The Fosters team won big bass honors ($175) with a 3.11-pound largemouth. Scott and LeeAnn Sizemore took home the critter pot with a 15.10-pound carp that earned them $155 in the 22-boat field.
Mike Martin didn’t walk away empty handed. He won the $170 Shimano Curado baitcast reel in the Tackle Shack LLC raffle.
Str8-Up Mounts Nation donated two mounts for the final event at Dukes Bridge. They will go to the first-out-of-money team that also presents a critter to weigh in Saturday at Dukes from 8-3.
