Jim Bybee of Benton and William Ketterman
of Wichita caught the largest fish of the tournament and placed
second with a total of eight fish. Among their arsenal were white

place in the money in the 2001 Stabor Classic.
Also using Swim Tails were third place
finishers Shawn Edwinson and Michele Jump of Lawrence. They were
using yellow, pink, and white Swim Tails.
Fourth place finishers Jimmy and Daniel
Moison of Topeka used white and chartreuse Swim Tails to help
secure their top four finish.
Lynn Beckwith of Ozawike and Joe Crai of
Topeka used white swimtails to help them secure eighth place.
High winds hampered fishing
Wind gusting to 40 miles per hour,
white caps and waves as high as three feet greeted anglers and
they transversed the water to their predetermined locations.
It was difficult for trolling and the best areas were in the
coves. The northern part of the lake was silted in which left
fihing along the submerged railroad tracks and river channels
in a lake near its normal level. Morning temperature was 66 with
a forecast to rise to the 90s.
