June 1, 2015 • MLF • Phoenix Bass Fishing League

PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. – Mike Feldermann of Galena, Illinois, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 15 pounds even Saturday to win the second Walmart Bass Fishing League Great Lakes Division tournament of 2015 on the Mississippi River. For his victory, Feldermann earned $6,498.

“It feels great,” said Feldermann, a 21-year BFL Great Lakes division veteran with eight career victories. “I know this area of the river really well so when I see my strategy fall into place it is really gratifying.”

Feldermann said he targeted bass in Pool No. 9 using a homemade white and chartreuse-colored spinnerbait.

“I was fishing the flooded reeds and grass in 2 to 3 feet of water the entire day,” Feldermann said. “I caught a quick limit at my first spot before heading north around 9 a.m.”

Feldermann said the biggest difference in his spots was the amount of fish he would catch, as well as their size.

“I caught the 4-pound, 12-ouncer – the biggest bass of the tournament – at about 11:15,” Feldermann said. “Those northern spots didn’t have tons of fish like the southern ones did, but the fish I brought in were large. If you want to win a tournament you’ve got to head up north.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Mike Feldermann, Galena, Ill., five bass, 15-0, $4,498 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus

2nd:         Jimmy Johnson, La Crosse, Wis., five bass, 13-10, $2,249

3rd:          Mike Brueggen, La Crosse, Wis., five bass, 12-8, $1,498

6th:          Kyle Von Ruden, Stoddard, Wis., five bass, 11-12, $787

8th:          Brian Fitzpatrick, La Crosse, Wis., five bass, 11-11, $675

9th:          Harold Therault, Grayslake, Ill., five bass, 11-0, $600

10th:        Wells Kaiser, Cuba City, Wis., five bass, 10-15, $498
