ONAMIA, Minn. – Alton Jones describes Mille Lacs as a big lake with big wind and big waves – and big opportunity for anglers who know how to work the terrain and adapt to the weather conditions during Bally Bet Stage Seven Presented by Minn Kota.
Jones has proven that he knows what he’s talking about when it comes to this northern smallmouth fishery as he won the Qualifying Round with nearly 36 pounds separating him from the No. 2 position. Jones reeled in 37 bass over two days for a total of 140 pounds, 12 ounces to qualify directly to Championship Thursday. Now, he has a shot at winning the Bass Pro Tour season finale.
