The team of Eric Nobriga of Oakley and Terry Vessel of Delhi won $1,005 for their first-place total weight of 25.28 pounds for a seven-fish limit. Nobriga and Vessel spent the day parallel casting the bank, resulting in Vessel’s landing of a 10.46-pound lunker that put his team over the top on a quarter-ounce chartreuse spinnerbait with gold blades.
The second-place father-and-son team of Craig and Matt Carabello of Discovery Bay punched the edge of the weeds to get their 21.35-pound limit, anchored by a 7.44-pound second-place big fish.
Matt Rogers of Livermore and Mario Guel of San Jose rounded out the top three with an 18.73-pound bag using a combination of crankbaits, spinnerbaits, frogs and a green/white speedtrap.
