Top 5 Update

Mon, April 24, 2017

For the second straight update we have an angler push his creel over the 20-pound mark.  This time around it is our 2016 Top 5 title holder who gets a significant boost from his Top Bass of 2017…so far.

Mark Bass

Weight: 5-15
Angler: Mark Balbinot
Date: April 14
Location: Fitch Lake – Lake Land Park Canton, IL
Lure: Rapala Shallow Shad Rap (shad)
Structure: Windy flat in about 3’ of water
Water Temp: 61F
Angler Comments: Caught a lot of small fish mainly on shallow running crankbaits, a few other fish on a jig, topwater baits and wave worms. Even caught a channel cat about 4 to 5 lbs on a crankbait. About an hour before a thunderstorm moved into the area I managed to catch a good one on that little Rapala crankbait.
Top 5 Weight: 22-1 (5-15,5-2,4-2,3-14,3-0) culls 2-12

Way to go, Mark. Hoping some others got out this past weekend as it turned out quite pleasant and looks to hold out for a couple more days in my neck of the woods.  Hmmm…Talk to you later.  Troy
