It was no surprise that cold water, poor water clarity, decreasing temps, rain and wind did not make for an easy bite - these are Florida strained largemouth after all. They do not like the cold.
Of the field, only two anglers weighed in limits on Saturday - Cody Beaumont (18lbs - 3ozs) and Mario Jorge (15lbs). Cody Beaumont was the only angler to bring in a limit on Sunday weighing 20lbs-7oz for a total of 38lbs-9ozs and the victory.
Jaime Baquera flipped up the large bass of the tournament with a 5lbs-15oz bruiser on Sunday to make 2nd place a tight race. Mario Jorge was able to hold on to second place with a 2-day total of 18lbs-3oz. Jaime Baquera ended just on his heals for 3rd place with 2-day total of 15lbs-1.5oz.
It was a decent turnout with 15 anglers but we'd love to increase our numbers. Next month will be a shootout on the Delta where there's sure to be some giants caught.
