Round 1 at Lake Okeechobee brought tough cold front conditions and over 20mph winds but that didn’t stop over 80 boaters from showing up to compete against some of Florida’s biggest sticks. No joke, this round brought some tough fishing conditions but the Everglades hammers Hank Krieg and Skip Reed take home a big win in Round 1 with almost 20 pounds and secured another Classic spot!
Round 2 heads back to the swap at Holiday Park with low waters which should have some big bags in both the main canals and also in the flats. It’s shaping up to be a slugfest!!!
