2. Eli Delany 6.03 Lbs.

Conditions: We had 65 degree air temps w/cloudy skies, spotty rain showers and a 10 mph NNW wind. Water temps were in the mid 60s.
Winning Strategy: Joe's initial pattern was to target his fish w/the drop shot technique using a Gary Yamamoto green w/gold flake cut tail worm in 12'-15' feet of water. After reaching his limit, he caught is kicker smallmouth at 4.87 pounds in 6 feet of water, also with the same colored drop shot bait.
