Deferred by 2 days of high winds, the 2 Day B1 Port Colborne bass tournament became a 1 day event on the eastern portion of Lake Erie. Under rough seas, the 65 two-person teams ventured out onto the big lake. While a brave few ventured far into Erie on both the American and Canadian sides looking for smallmouth gold, a majority of the teams decided to play it safe and focus on fishing current breaks along the Upper Niagara River. Cal Climpson and Eric Santoro bested them all with a 5 bass limit weighing 24.06lbs. For their efforts they took the grad prize of a 2017 Ranger bass boat powered by a Mercury motor. With 22.93lbs, Neil Deleeuw and Terry Monaghan took second followed by Denis Kreze and Brent Cook who has 21.91 for third.
