Classic Bass Champions Tour- Lake Minnewaska Recap

Here’s our 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th place finishers breaking down their days. All anglers have qualified themselves for the Classic Bass Champions Tour Championship

In 2nd place was Shane Raveling. Raveling is always a threat on Lake Minnewaska and he lived up to his reputation. Shane scored 75 pounds 8 ounces of bass while fishing an All-Terrain Tackle jig. Shane had the best average size fish for the entire field at over 2 pounds.

In 3rd place was Jay Carlson, with 66 pounds and 12 ounces. Jay took advantage of his one and only opportunity on the Classic Bass Champions Tour to qualify for the year end Championship. Carlson started off the day on fire. ScoreTracker was lighting up after he dialed in his first spot of the day. Jay used a jig worm and a weightless senko to catch his fish.

FLW Pro Austin Felix rallied in the 2nd half of the day to climb into 4th place. Austin’s big producer was a weightless senko. 6 bags of plastics later, Austin had 61 pounds and 3 ounces of Minnewaska bass. Felix did score a number of Lake Minnewaska smallmouth as well.

After falling just ounces short of 6th place on Mille Lacs, Corey Brant got some serious redemption on Minnewaska by catching 59 Pounds and 10 ounces to punch his ticket to the Classic Bass Champions Tour Championship. Corey put a jig worm and a drop shot to work in the 12-16 foot Waska weed clumps.

Our 6th place and final qualifier from Lake Minnewaska was Brad Leifermann. Brad was able to hang around the cut line all day and with some late day heroics, he grabbed the coveted 6th spot and will be headed to the Championship. Brad used a variety of baits but did a lot of damage on a homemade chatter bait.
