Balaba 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, 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
