Smallmouth Rein Supreme on Rice Lake!
By Luigi De Rose
On Sunday, July 19th Top Bass anglers returned to Rice Lake to once again do battle. Under heavy humidity and heat, 101 teams ventured out to once again see who can catch the heaviest five bass limit. The team of Scott Burns and Jay MacDonald surpassed them all with a 21.78 lb creel of smallmouth beating second place team of Testa and Amoruso by two pounds. For their win they collected $4050 in prize money. Big fish went to third place team of Williams and Jacobs who netted a 5.99 lb beauty. The weekend saw a new face to Top Bass, as Reno Viola was master of ceremonies. He did a wonderful job at keeping the crowd and anglers up-beat on a steamy, summer weekend.
