Wegner and Geheber's Consistency wins Classic!

You have heard about a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs right?......He's a nervous feline. No question Andy Wegner was that cat at this year's Strike King Ever-Bloom TT Classic. He and his partner Aaron Geheber kept their composure and stayed consistent for two days, September 22 and 23 to win the Strike King Ever-Bloom Classic on Lake Bloomington and Evergreen Lake respectively. "I found some bass on Lake Bloomington pre-fishing and felt pretty good about our chances of catching them" said Wegner.

Their winning weight was 10.46 lbs and they were the only team to bring a limit to the scales.

Blake and Brown Back in the Saddle

The Strike King Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail had an unusual day at Lake Evergreen...temps were warm and no or little wind, May 26th at the second event of the 2007 campaign. Showers persisted in the early am but cleared off to temps in the high 70's with overcast conditions. Scouting reports from anglers who pre-fished were mixed but most anglers felt like it would be a banner event.

Finally!

After cancellation of the April 14 event due to dangerous weather conditions, the 2007 Strike King Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail kicked off a new season at Lake Bloomington on May 12th and right on cue a blustery cold front rolled through the area the night before. Twenty two teams launched at 6:00 am with temperatures in the low 50's and blustery wind conditions with water temperatures holding steady in the lower 70 degree range in hopes of solving the lake's mysteries. Jamie Maisenbacher and Guido Didonato found a small key to the frontal conditions that allowed them to br
