Under difficult fishing conditions and a temperamental wind, the team of Bob Formosa and Jayson Seliba win the Bass Pro Shop Open on Lake Simcoe. With a hefty creel of 27.05 pounds for 5 bass, this pair captured their forth victory of this autumn classic. Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching are world reknown smallmouth fisheries and this pair displayed that even difficult fishing, big bass can be caught. Matt Belzil and Jason Clay finished second with 25.65 pounds. Third place went to Kal Vaisanen and Bill Walker who closed the day with 24.3 pounds.
This year's tournament weights were way down. Known for producing record catches of bass, two years ago, the heaviest 5-bass limit in Canadian history was landed at over 31 pounds by the team of Joey Muszunski and Mark Moran. The crowds wasn't disappointed though as the power house team of Derek Strub and Mike Desforges brought in the largest bass of the day, a stunning 7.75 smallmouth.
