The St. Lawrence River and eastern basin of Lake Ontario are proving to be the best smallmouth bass fishery in the world. Brothers Chris and Cory Johnston are becoming two of the very best at the game here. With 15 bass weighing an astonishing 79-09lbs they easily claimed the $15 000 grand prize. The brothers distant themselves by seven pounds from father and son team Brian and Brian Jr. Bylotas who sacked 72-77lbs. Third place was claimed by Scott Nagy and Denny Andrade who landed 71-96lbs.

Over the three day event the weather was fairly stable with Sunday being the windiest. These ideal conditions allowed anglers to jet from spot to spot staying on biting pods. Overshadowed by the countless big smallmouth were scores of largemouth that helped teams fatten their weigh-in bags.

The Renegade Bass 1000 Island Open event is becoming a premier tournament for big bass anglers in the north.
