The fishing was as red hot as the weather on Lake St. Francis in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec. The 108 two-man teams battled it out on one of the most specatular smallmouth bass fisheries on the planet. Unfortunately,  catching the huge smallmouth became a trying experience for most. With temperatures in the low 30C, the bass were not in their predictable early autumn locations. Many found the bass disinterested even with the best presented baits and blamed countless bass tournaments throughout the summer and early fall for the fickly bass. Regardless, the Johnston brothers displayed once again why they are top FLW Touring pros and sacked a tremendous two-day limit of 49.03lbs for ten bass. Day 1 leaders, Lenny Devos and Jeff Magee came the closest to dethrore the Johnston boys who just won the Emerald Isle tournament the weekend prior.
Along with grand prize of $20 000 cash, Cory and Chris also won a Ranger Boat package plus  additional Ranger Boat and Garmin contingency prizes. Quite a haul for the last B1 Event of 2017
