On the first chilly weekend of autumn, 101 teams ventured on the bass rich waters of Lake Saint-Francis, Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Qc, Canada trying to win the Berkley B1 tournament. If the wind is light, this tournament is a smallmouth whack fest. At the end of the two-day event, Team Radioworld's Ryan Flaro and Scott Lefebvre claim the tournament with 43.59lbs. Claiming the prize of a Z518 Ranger Boat and Mercury Motor package plus two championship rings is quite a haul. Flaro and Lefebvre grabbed top spot by the slimmest of margins, just 0.01 over Eric Danis and Eric Lamarche who landed 43.58lbs. You cannot get closer than that! Third place Nicolas Gendron and Jason Gramada also narrowly missed the win with their 43.54 pound total. This weekend, once again displayed why many consider Lake Saint-Francis one of the top smallmouth lakes on the planet.
