STURGEON BAY, Wis. – Forty MLF pros hit the Wisconsin waters as the final 2020 Bass Pro Tour event, the Covercraft Stage Five Presented by Abu Garcia, began on Sturgeon Bay. From the beginning, it was clear the day would belong to Berkley pro Justin Lucas. Lucas took an early and record-breaking lead that he held onto for the entire round, catching 50 bass for 141-9. On the day, the 80-man field caught 553 smallies, with Lucas’ catch count making up nearly 10% of the bass.

Take a look at some of the on-the-water action from Friday’s smallmouth slugfest on the famed fishery!
