Top 3 | Wheeler Lake Bassmaster Elite

Winner Cliff Prince

The Wheeler Lake Bassmaster Elite was a good one, lot's of big bass crossed the scales. Here is look at how the top three caught them!

Prince weighed in 20 bass weighing 80-15, one bait and one spot accounted for most of his weight. Price fished a hard spot in the grass a slow presentation was key,

Bass Assassin Little Boss Trailer (snow storm) 

Fitzgerald 7'3" baitscast rod (medium)

Shimano Reel (7:3) 

Seagaur Tatsu (17 lb)


#2 Ray Hanselman Jr

Finishing second Hanselman made things interesting in a tournament that was Princes to loose. Hanselman weighed in in 23-5 on Championship Sunday for a 20 bass total of 77lbs.

Targeting a shellbar and isolated stumps with a squaredbill and a big worm did most of the damage.
