Russell and Ferguson Prevail at Evergreen

The second event of the Strike King Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail found some tough fishing but the best in Central Illinois always rise to the occasion. East wind and cool temps greeted 21 teams at Evergreen Lake May 10.

Veteran anglers Larry Russell and Randy Ferguson took top honors with 3 bass weighing 8.01 lbs. They were working bed fish pitching jigs and plastic in shallow water. Great job guys!

In second were Roger Rider and Brian Bounds with 2 bass weighing 7.96 lbs. They too caught their bass shallow.

In third and winning 2 Setyr Cranking sticks were Dusty Whitaker and Brian Estes with two bass weighing 7.42 lbs.

Rounding out the top 5 were Aaron Geheber and Andy Wegner with 2 bass at 6.61 lbs good enough for 4th place and Freddie Myers and Ken Petersen weighing 3 at 5.59 lbs for 5th.

Big Bass of the event was weighed by Jerry Martoglio and Steve Anderson with a 4.84 lb bass.

There were a total of 26 bass brought to the scales weighing 69.46 lbs for a 3.30 lb average.
