Matthew Malmquist of White Lake, Michigan, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 21 pounds even Sunday to win the FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Michigan Division Super Tournament on Lake St. Clair. For his victory, Malmquist took home $7,106.

The tournament, originally schedule for two days, became a one-day event when unsafe weather conditions forced FLW organizers to cancel the first day of competition.

“In the morning I stopped on a flat in the Middle Channel, which is a creek arm off of the St. Clair River,” says Malmquist, who earned his first win in BFL competition. “I threw a blue and yellow-colored Heddon Super Spook and caught a 4-pounder within minutes. After that, I ran to Lake Huron and hit some deep drifts in 30 to 35 feet of water. I boated one keeper in the 4-pound range on a drop-shot rig with a Baby Bass-colored Yamamoto Baits Shad Shape Worm.”

After his pair of 4-pounders, Malmquist says he stopped in Anchor Bay on Lake St. Clair to fish isolated grass patches. He connected with another 4-pounder on the drop-shot rig.

“Toward the end of the day I made one final run to an area known as Metro Beach, and caught two more keepers on a Magic Goby-colored Strike King Coffee Tube,” says Malmquist. “Those final catches sealed the deal for me. With how dirty the water was, the dark-colored tube did well. I think a lot of people left St. Clair because of the stained water, but it worked for me.”
