STURGEON BAY, Wis. – One thing that the 50 anglers fishing for a $200,000 payday at the Tackle Warehouse TITLE Presented by Toyota have become intimately familiar with this week is change.

As if a 2-pound minimum weight, a catch-everything-you-can scoring system, penalties and alternating competition days aren’t enough to juggle, Wednesday brought with it the kind of change that anglers have had to adjust to their whole lives: weather and water conditions.

With an intermittent, shifting 10- to 15-mph wind pushing water around Green Bay and Lake Michigan – and drastically changing the bite in areas that the 25 anglers in Group A made hay on two days earlier – the second Qualifying Round of Group A competition played out like a rock-and-roll festival: something to look at here, a side attraction to look at there, and a little bit of everything to capture your attention for a minute or two.
