The 1000 Island and Lake Ontario prove again why this might be the greatest place on earth for smallmouth bass fishing. Even with weights down compared to Day 1's slugfest the fishing was stellar. Chris and Cory Johnston grab the lead with a 2 day total of 53.63lbs for 10 bass. Second place is the father/son team of Brian Bylotas and Brain Jr who scored a 26.10lb limit anchored with a 5.95lb bass. Their two day total is 50.79lbs. Third place goes to regional heroes Charles Sim and Nigel Touhey who have 49.93lbs. The final day weigh-in will be live on Renegade's Facebook page today at 4pm.
