For Immediate Release -

La Crosse, Wis.—October 5, 2014—Ben Otto and Casey Gallagher finished strong to score a comeback victory at the Cabela’s North American Bass Circuit’s North Region World Bass Championship Oct. 4-5 on the Mississippi River out of La Crosse, Wis.

“Words can’t describe this feeling,” said Otto. “I’m originally from the La Crosse area, and winning this event in front of family and friends is incredibly special.”

That fish anchored an impressive 23-pound, 5-bass limit that propelled them from fourth place on day one into the winners’ circle.

They raised the bar by nearly six pounds on day two, for a 40-pound, 6-ounce total weight. “We pushed our fish a little harder today,” Gallagher explained after the final weigh-in. He noted that the team mainly fished ½-ounce football jigs tipped with soft-plastic, chunk-style craw trailers, though swimbaits and stickbaits were also key to their program.

 

 

 

Gary Adkins and Kyle Carpenter, both of Green Bay, Wis., finished a close second with 38 pounds, 15 ounces, worth a cool $6,000 in cash from the payout plus another $325 for their 5-pound, 8-ounce smallmouth that was big bass on day two.
