Second place and $1,000 went to David Walker and Shannon Walker of Piqua with 10.85 pounds. Ted Webster of Hutchinson and Robert Riddick of Wakefield finished third with 7.97 pounds. They won $750.

Salina angler breaks state smallmouth mark

Jason Heis of Salina caught a state record smallmouth bass last Sunday at Milford Lake. Although the weight wasn't official, it will be about 6.68 pounds. The existing record is 6.37 pounds, also taken at Milford.

Heis was fishing in a bass tournament sponsored by the Salina Bassmasters, a Kansas Bass Chapter Federation affiliated club.

The bass was taken on a Senko style lure, in the area of Thunderbird Marina. Area fishery biologist John Rienke verified the weight.
