Canadian Invasion @ the FLW Everstart in Clayton NY

This weekend was the FLW Everstart event in Clayton NY and there must have been a northern breeze blowing as the top three spots all went to Canadian anglers.

The Event was won by Bob Izumi a staple on the Canadian fishing scene (and TV's) since I was a kid. Bob weighed in 21lbs on day three to bring his total up to 58.1lbs over the three days. For his troubles Izumi took home over $25,000 in cash prizes as well as a new Ranger boat

2nd Place went to John Mcgoey from Omeemee Ontario. John nearly matched Bob fish for fish and in the end finished 1lb off the pace.

In 3rd place fresh off his win in the Kingstson Canadian open is Cory Johnson. Cory shares my home town so I may be a little bias here, be he appears to be on a hot streak finishing up the event with 56.08lbs.

I have to mention the other member of the Johnson family, Chris Johnson finished in 7th place making it a total of 4 Canadians in the top 10. I hope this trend continues as it very exciting to see some local talent doing good on the big stage.
