May 25 CCBM Open results:

Forecasts of almost Gale force winds and 2 days of rain over the Upper Bay kept a lot of boats home. The parking lot at Anchor was nearly empty.  The morning was cold in the low 40's, damp and windy, more like early March instead of the end of May but the threat of high winds and muddy water didn't stop 8 teams from plying the Upper bay in search of big bass.

Steady 25 mph winds with gusts to 35 + hampered fishing but a couple teams were able to get their limit.

The top team of Sean Geerloff and Stan Horne found a few big females, bringing in the winning sack of 5 largemouth for a nice wind driven bag of 18.65 pounds.

Second Place and Lunker went to the team of Kevin Gergel and Brian Wishanick with 15.56 pounds and a nice 6.00 lunker.  ( just edging out a 5.98 bass of the 3rd place team )

Third place went to the team of James McMillen and John Haselbarth with 3 good bass for 10.72 pounds.

1st - Geerloff - Horne  -       5 fish - 18.65 Lbs.  - 5.57 Lunker
2nd - Gergel - Wishanick -    5 fish - 15.56 Lbs.  - 6.00 Lunker
