Taking home second place and $1,100 was the husband and wife team of Ted and Louise Stewner from Canada. Ted and Louise put their smallmouth knowledge to use bringing in 19.76lbs of all smallmouth.
Rounding out the top 3 was the team of Matt Williams and Ryan Wiita. Ryan and Matt brought in a limit weighing 18.76lbs earning them $780 which included the days 2nd place big fish. The 5.90lb largemouth brought their total winnings to $880.
