 Steven Schubert Stays On Top to Take Mosquito Lake Win

Steven Schubert of Rayland, Ohio weighed in 5 fish that went 10.74 pounds to win the Weekend Bass Series Ohio event 2014-07-12 on Mosquito.

I've fished Mosquito Lake about eight times to date, and got one day this week to scout for this event.  I was able to put together a dependable pattern and located fish in two key areas that I worked repeatedly throughout the day today.  All of my fish came on buzzbaits and frogs.  It was a very productive day in which we caught about 40 keeper fish between myself and my co-angler.

Rounding out the top 10 boaters were:

1 Steven J. Schubert 5 10.74 250 $1255
2 Dale Prinkey 5 10.19 249 $ 640
3 Edward Eddie S. Shockley 5 9.56 248 $ 420

Blake Otterson of Austintown, Ohio weighed in 3 fish weighing 6.74 pounds to win the Co-Angler division of the Weekend Bass Series Ohio event on 2014-07-12 on Mosquito.

Living close by I fish Mosquito Lake as often as I can.  I was not able to practice specifically for this event but have been on the water recently.  We caught numerous fish throughout the day and I had good success with a Scum Frog over the grass.
