The 3rd Annual SPRO Frog Lake Havasu Open is in the books and what an event it was.  102 teams took to the waters of Lake Havasu this morning.  Temperatures at take off was in the low 80's and calm warming up to 110 at weigh in.  As per typical Havasu fashion there was a breeze this afternoon to keep the temperature down.  

Taking the win in this years event was the Havasu team of Paul Tassie and Ross Baker.  Paul and Ross brought in 19.48lbs of bass earning them $6,500.  The winnings didn't stop there as their limit was anchored by the days 3rd place big fish; a 4.73lb largemouth earning them an additional $610.  Their total winnings for the day was $7,110.

Our second place finisher traveled all the way from Tucson.  Fishing by himself was Patrick Spencer.  Patrick brought in 17.98lbs earning him $3,500.  He earned an additional $1,500 plus two pairs of Costa Sunglasses for weighing in a 5.42lb kicker earning him the Costa Big Bass Award.  This brought his total winnings to over $5,000 in cash and prizes.

Third place went to Morgan Holbrook and Aaron Morrison.  Morgan and Aaron brought in a limit weighing 17.27lbs earning them $2,000.  Their catch was anchored by the days second place big fish.  Their 5.03lb largemouth earned them an additional $920 for a total of $2,920.

Fourth place went to last years winners.  Josh Rhodes and Chris Studinger earned $1,500 for bringing in a limit tipping the scales at 15.59lbs.

Rounding out the top five was the father and son team of Micah Jones and Jimmy Jones.  Micah and Jimmy weighed 15.06lbs earning them $1000.

I would like to personally thank all of the anglers and sponsors that stepped up to make this event a huge success.  Anderson Toyota once again hosted our Friday night registration and hosted an awesome fajita dinner for the anglers.  Duckett fishing donated two Dean Rojas signature series frog rods for first out of the money.  Costa Sunglasses stepped in this year to sponsor our big fish awards of two pairs of Costa Sunglasses.  They also sent numerous hats and lanyards that were used as first out of the money prizes Lucas Oil donated three cleaning kits that were used for first out of the money.  John and JJ Gibbs with Gibbs Propeller provided lunch and drinks for the anglers after the weigh in for the third year in a row.  CarToyz of Havasu returned as the plaque sponsor for this event.  Last and certainly not least we all owe a huge thank you to SPRO for their support of this event making it a 100% payback to the anglers.  

Thank you again to everyone.  See you all next year.  Lets hit 150 boats.
