Day 2 of the 2019 District Championship was almost a mirror image of Day 1 as far as the weather was concerned. Beautiful temps with a steady wind of 10-15 mph. The fishing  was a different story and all together tough for most, but not too tough for Brian and Lauri Lopp who brought the biggest bag of the event to the scales with a 16.80 bag including the Day 2 Big Bass weighing 4.24. The husband and wife team ended Day 1 in 5th Place but would end up with a total weight of 27.99 making them the 2019 District 11 Champions. Congratulations to Brian and Lauri! Finishing in 2nd Place was the Adult/Junior team of Paul Paskevicius and Matteo Turano with a total of 23.08. Paul and Matteo has almost identical days with 11.55 & 11.53. Coming 3rd for the event was the team of Kerry Malone and Jim Dietel with a day two weight of 10.98 added to 10.34 from Day 1 makes their total weight 21.32. Finishing in 4th Place was the father/son team of Michael and Richard Rasmussen with a two day total of 18.89. 5th Place is the team of Cravens and Digiavonna with a two day total of 18.05. These five teams have qualified to compete in the National Championship next March in Leesburg, Florida on the Harris Chain of Lakes. Also qualified is the husband and wife team of Marlan and Debbie Brown who were the only team fishing out of a BassCat boat. Congratulations to all the teams who qualified for Nationals! We look forward to cheering you all on next March!
