Ryan and Steve Mekdeci bring home the gold on Istokpoga. They ran the mouth of canals to catch some good post spawn fish and even got to look at a few. The bass were in all three stages of the spawn and they took advantage of them all with 19.22 pounds of Istokpoga gold. Tom Craighead and Bob Grosso picked apart vegetation in every corner of the lake to capture their 18.83 pounds for a second place finish. Brian Hofmann and Steve Paynter captured third place with 18.13. They worked bulrush all day in about a 100 yard stretch to claim their prize. The lunker of the tourney belonged to Jerry DeWitt and Paul Sharp with a 7.89 monster to claim their share of Istokpoga gold. 44 boats competed with less than half the field bringing a limit.
Our 2018 Classic Champions win the Allstate Kissimmee Clash with 21.79 pounds. Ron Stoker and Greg VanMeter fished the east side of Kissimmee targeting potential beds as well as staging fish. They worked swimbaits around arrowheads and worked isolated pad fields with a combination of stickworms and flippin baits. Second place was captured by Chris Neatherly and Steve Gallette. They subdued 17.74 pounds of Kissimmee fury with a slow presentation to the pads in the north cove area of the lake. Third place belonged to Tom Craighead and Bob Grosso. They had 17.43 pounds from an undisclosed location with a secret bait although this time , they managed to catch of lunker of the month. She would go 7.83 and earn them a nice check.
