Kingston Canadian Open - Day 1 & Day 2 Results

It's that time of year again, a time in which many of Canada's top anglers flock to the city of Kingston on search of monster bronze back on the world class fishery that is Lake Ontario. You might say they also come to test their skills again two Peterborough Boys (Chris and Cory Johnston) and one American (Jeff Coble) who have been dominating the event the past few years.

With one day in the books the Open has a very different look to it this year, first off, the participation level took another huge drop this year seeing last years low of 61 boats cut by yet another 20.. I remember when this event pulled in 100 boats and 200 anglers.. another change can be seen on the leader board, as last years winner Jeff Cobble had a tough day 1 only weighing in 2.3lbs (he set a record last year with over 72lbs for the 3 days.

Here's your top 30 Pro's after Day 1

As always there are some familiar names on the leader board, including the the Johnston Brothers (Chris in 1st and Cory in 9th). The Izumi family also make an appearance with Darren finishing a solid 6th, Uncle Wayne in 16th and Bob at 26th place.

a personal favorite John Whyte is sitting in 22nd and as always is poised to make a run on Day 3.

As for the Amateurs their top 30 is as follows....

Due to High winds Day 2 of this 3 day event has been cancelled, with no word as of yet if the event will be a 2-Dayer or push into Sunday. Tomorrows forecast is calling for a turnaround weather wise and it will be interesting to see if the fish change and how these anglers will react.

Good luck out there.
