I was so bummed after the Bass Pro Shops Northern Open at Oneida Lake that I had to wait a few days before attempting to write this.
An angler misses the Bass Pro Shops Northern Open for all the right reasons.
On Day Two of the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Open on Oneida Lake, New York pro Jim Bianchi landed the largest limit of the tournament to build a lead of over 2 pounds over his closest competitor.
See how the Top 12 Pros and Cos compared on Oneida!
Take an inside peek at Jayme Calwell's technique for tournament preparation.
Second day leader Jim Bianchi spends his last day on the water of the Northern Open #2 fighting for the fish, trophy and Bassmaster Classic berth.
There are some incorrect results showing on the Open leaderboard for the Pro Anglers. Kenneth Woods, in 24th place, has incorrect weights and fish counts for Day 1 and Day 2. The total weight and fish count is correct. 24 Kenneth Woods 3 9- 4 3 10- 3 10 28-13 His weights should be: Day 1: 5 and 14-09. Day 2: 5 and 14-04
The Top 12 in the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open #2 prepare for their last day on the water.
Bianchi Update He's now culling and just caught the best one yet. A mixed foursome of finesse baits are doing the trick. He's using a drop shot rig with a finesse worm. Looks like there's a small jig with plastic trailer. The other two rigs are variations of the drop shot and the jig. The wind has definitely picked up, not that it really matters at this point. It's blowing around 10 mph from the west.
Full Box for Bianchi Things have happened quickly for leader Jim Bianchi. He's already got a limit in the boat and the first two fish came on board at 6 a.m., just 15 minutes after takeoff. The sun has just come into full view. He's pitching grass in 10 feet of water.
