Chasing Team 46 … Check it.
Canada’s premium professional angling tour, Renegade Bass, and its army of skilled Anglers roll into Cornwall Ontario this week chasing Scott Lefebvre and Rob Yantha, now the 2012 team of the year points race leaders.
This event stop on the St Lawrence River officially marks the halfway point of the tour season. And fortunately for this Canadian Professional Angling Team, they are red hot and poised to pull away from the field if they can figure out how to load the boat with GIANT Lake St. Francis small mouth bass.
After a predictable cheque cashing finish on the sewage saturated Ottawa River a few weeks ago, team 46 is riding the momentum and confidence needed to tighten their choke hold on the rest of the Renegade field of competitors.
Renegade Bass, Canada’s Premier Professional Bass Angling Circuit is underway!
Mississippi Lake, located in beautiful Carlton place Ontario played host to the best Professional Bass Anglers in Canada in what turned out to be an insanely blustery day on the water. In fact, even of the Southern Ontario Pro’s who routinely visit the punishing waves of Lake St Claire and Erie lamented on their experience spent out on the water. Some were quoted in saying that they were surprised a lake this shallow could whip itself into such a fury, and regrettably reported that in some instances the rough waters damaged their boats and equipment.
But as in all professional sports the competitors heed no concern to the arena of play, and dug deep into their bag of tricks to find a solution to fool the bass of Mississippi Lake. It was no surprise as the expected names that orbit the proverbial winners circle finished where they did. However the 2012 season started off with some interesting characters cashing cheques and taking an early lead in the coveted “Team of the Year” point’s race. Initially anyways…
Of the top 10 teams, the most unexpected Pros to take a swipe at top spot were team number 10 Pete MacCormack and Dave Morin. Combined these two share 15 years of tournament experience and have to date limped along with a lack luster career crediting only 1 cheque cashed, 0 wins, 0 big fish awards, and 0 classic wins to their names.
