Day 1 on Gull Lake TOC is in the Books!

The Minnesota Bass Tour Tournament of Champions on Gull Lake sponsored by Blackfish Gear has wrapped up for Day 1. Yesterday’s pre-fishing day resulted in most teams filling their limits with little challenge. Storms rolling through central Minnesota and the Brainerd lakes area over night drew pause from anglers on how patterns would change and whether they would bite as well as Friday.

Long story short: the bass still bit.

While the word on the street that it was 85 degrees back home in the twin cities at 9am, anglers experienced a fog that rolled in at 7:00 and lasted all they way through the noon hour. Temps for most of that time were in the comfortable mid-70’s.

Anglers returned back to Craguns resort at 3:00pm for the weigh-in with anticipation not only for winning the two day tourney but also how the team of the year would shake out.

Day 1 Results – Presented by Blackfish Gear

Flippin’ Ain’t Easy once again showed how they love these end of year tourneys, historically placing near the top or winning them in the past. Rob Bolke and Nate Whithed nabbed the weekend lead with 18.30 and the Day 1 Big Bass, a 5.25 lb largemouth. In 2nd place was The Bassassins (Dan Krocak, Jim Krocak) with 16.75 lbs and the second largest bass of 4.80 lbs. In 3rd was Last Cast (Paul Hecht, Mark Wessel) with 16.10 lbs.

Team of the Year Standings

Unique to the Minnesota Bass Tour, we accumulate Team of the Year points on both days of this weekend. With taking 3rd place today, Last Cast broke the tie they had with Roboworm (Dan Cochran, Bill Linaugh). Here’s the current standings going into the last day of the year!
