to struggle on a very tough bite during the tournament but some
figured it out. With one tournament left in the season, the battle

Wins 2014 State Classic with 31 Pounds!
the 31st annual SCBBBC classic was a great success. There were 37
of the worlds best kick boaters that descended on the world famous
Clear Lake looking for that huge bag of fish. The word around the
lake was that the bite was tough and fishing very small. The weigh
in on day one made this an obvious truth, with the leader (Deren
Kozenko) at 14lbs and day ones big fish of 7lbs. With a lot of anglers
scratching their heads about what to do on day 2 we all headed over
to State Park for the barbecue and raffle. We want to say a special
thank you to Mark & Laura Harrison and Sarah Duffany for all
their hard work preparing food and all around help. The food was
great and the raffle was as usual a lot of fun.
A big thanks to our sponsors OUTDOOR
PROSHOPS first and foremost for their generous support not only
this year but all the years past.HI's Tackle shop, Clear Lake Outdoors,
Bucksbags, Gary Dobyns, Clear lake Bait and Tackle, CatchemCaro
Baits, Little Creeper Baits, Matt Nyiri for the CamelBack and all
the others who donated their gear and time to make it so special.
When day 2 weigh in started there were obvious adjustments made
and the weights had increased for those who found those fish that
were hungry. Day one leader showed consistency and had a lead heading
to the final angler, Daniel Balaba who's day one
weight was only 8lbs.The tension mounted as he began to load his
fish into the weigh bag. when the fish hit the scales he had a 4
fish limit of over 22lbs to win this years Classic with a total
weight of 31.43. Second went to Deren Kozenko with
28.46 3rd going to Chris LaPoint 20.54, 4th Dave
Sternitzke 19.56 and rounding out the top five was Mike
Ayers at 18.63. Marcus Werner and Jon
Graves also finished in the money. Big Fish Honors go to
Deren Kozenko 7.00 and Rob Linden 6.89. Thanks to everyone for showing
up and making this a great tournament. Andy Mercado.
