White Bear Lake Keeps the Lines Tight

This weekend, the Minnesota Bass Tour fished their second tournament of the season on White Bear Lake, presented by Blackfish Gear!

Bass Tour members were also faced with the fun challenge of sorting through a large volume of 14-16 inch bass to try and beat the field.

Temps at blast-off were low 50’s never getting higher than 65, overcast clouds until 11:00 and anglers managing a 10-15 mph northwest wind all day long. Tour members couldn’t help but wonder if we skipped over summer and went straight into Fall!

But it was Team Flippin’ & Lippin’ of Mike Doughty and Tim “Krebby” Krebs who healed their wounds from their lackluster finish in August 2015. That day, they were only able to muster up 11.75 lbs.
