  • John Figi has made a major 2nd half push and is currently in 3rd place unofficially. It's no surprise that Figi has done damage on the Tonka bass today!

    Jay Carlson is unofficially in 3rd place and looking good with less then 1.5 hours left in the day. Jay has used his Minnetonka experience to stay consistent all day

    Capra scores a good one just shy of 4. Dean is still in the hunt for the top 6

    Our leader, Tim Schroeder is pushing the 100 pound mark. Here he is with yet another fish catch

    Matt Thompson is one of the better muskie fishermen around, but today he's showing us that he knows how to catch Lake Minnetonka bass as well. Matt's currently in 7th place, just ounces out of the Top 6 qualifying spots

    The 2nd half is rockin and we're talking with Brad Leifermann. Brad is unofficially in 12th place right now.

    Jim Lindner hasn't been to Lake Minnetonka in 20 years but that hasn't slowed him down! Lindner is currently in 4th place unofficially

    1st Half Recap. Will Pappa leads the way!

    Mark Courts tells us what he looks for on his Humminbird units

    With just minutes left in the 1st half, our unofficially leader is Will Pappa who has stacked up over 70 pounds of Tonka bass!

    Will Pappa has absolutely loaded the boat this morning with over 70 pounds of bass unofficially, but don't forget about Tim Schroeder who has closed the gap and cracked 70 pounds as well!

    Courts and Liddle are dialed into a spot and using Minn Kota's Spot Lock feature to keep them exactly where they want to be. Amazing technology!

    We caught up with FLW Pro Dave Larson who is running docks early this morning

    Classic Bass talks Tonka

    Dean Capra kicks us off with an early bite. We're expecting plenty of fish catches today!

    Champions Tour vet Brad Leifermann catches a good channel fish that has him hovering right around the top 6 unofficially
