Boater Chad Foster of Pequot Lakes, Minnesota, brought four bass weighing 13 pounds, 9 ounces, to the scale Friday to jump from third into the lead after Day Two of a very tough Costa FLW Series Championship on Kentucky Lake. Foster’s two-day total of nine bass weighing 33-6 gives him a slim 1-pound, 13-ounce, advantage over second-place boater Larry Stoafer of Leavenworth, Kansas, heading into the third and final day of competition. Reigning FLW Tour Angler of the Year Bryan Thrift, who led the event on Day One, weighed just two bass totaling 3-9 and fell to third place.

This week’s tournament features anglers from six countries casting for a $95,000 prize package in the Pro Division, including a new Ranger Z518C boat with a 200-horsepower Evinrude outboard and automatic qualification to the 2018 Forrest Wood Cup – the world championship of professional bass fishing.

Foster was able to overcome the stingy conditions and follow up his 19-pound Day One limit with four solid keepers. Foster is fishing south, near New Johnsonville, and said he has multiple shallow areas with a lot of potential.

“There’s a bunch of fish in my area. I’m getting the bites, but they were biting weird today,” said Foster, who recently moved to Minnesota after qualifying for the championship through the FLW Series Southeastern Division. “There were five or six fish that didn’t eat really eat the bait. I feel fortunate to have four today.”

Foster said his areas range from 6 inches to 3 feet in depth and that the wind played a key role in his success today.

 “I caught my two biggest fish in three casts as soon as the wind switched and started blowing,” said Foster. “It was slick calm this morning. I think the fish were getting too good of look at the bait.”
