Mike Brueggen of La Crosse, Wisconsin, brought five bass to the stage weighing 15 pounds, 1 ounce Saturday to win the Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by T-H Marine event on the Mississippi River in La Crosse, Wisconsin. For his victory, Brueggen earned $3,804.

“The key for me was that I found a couple of eelgrass lines while practicing on Tuesday,” says Brueggen, who earned his seventh career BFL victory – second this season. “It was way better grass than what I’ve been finding, and it did it for me today.

“I was fishing in the bootom of Pool 7 and the middle of Pool 8,” Brueggen continues. “I caught them all on a swim jig, a frog and a buzzbait.”

 

The top 10 boaters:

 1st: Mike Brueggen of La Crosse, Wis., five bass, 15-1, $3,804

 2nd: Chris Welch of Fall River, Wis., five bass, 14-12, $1,584
