Two bags of smallmouth over 23 pounds were weighed in to take the top two spots.

The team of Jessie Spellicy and Aziel Snyder, Gouveneur, earned top honors with 23.58 pounds and Brad Paradis and Robert Paradis, Ogdensburg, placed second with 23.25 pounds

Team Paradis also had the lunker of the day, a 6.28 lb smallmouth caught by Robert Paradis which also joined the record books as the second largest bass to come to the scales in club history.
