Mike Brueggen of La Crosse, Wisconsin, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 15 pounds, 11 ounces, Saturday to win the fourth FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Great Lakes Division tournament of 2016 on the Mississippi River. For his efforts, Brueggen took home $5,963.

“I started off the day in the middle of Pool No. 9 targeting largemouth in weeds,” says Brueggen, who earned his third win in BFL competition. “I was in the backwaters and the water was running high.”

Brueggen used a black and purple-colored Kureiji swim jig to catch four keepers.

“As the day progressed, I switched patterns to target smallmouth,” says Brueggen. “I ran to a shell bed and used a green-pumpkin-orange Kureiji football-head jig and a Carolina-rigged Zoom Lizard. I dragged them until a fish came up to the surface for a minnow, and then I threw a Heddon Zara Spook to it.”

Brueggen says he ended up weighing a mixed limit of bass – three smallmouth and two largemouth.
