In the 33-boat field that launched at Ladd's on the California Delta this morning for the 2nd stop of the Stockton Bass trail, one double-digit was found. The team of Justin Arrellano and Ben Willis were responsible for the big bass and claimed the Big Fish payout for their catch.
The 10.13 held by Willis in the above photo was hangin' out in the tules near the rocks in shallow water. The big fish bit their 6-inch, wacky-rigged watermelon Senko about 1:30 p.m.
Aside from flippin' Senkos, they also threw cranks and chatterbaits landing 12 keepers for the day.

Arellano and Willis weighed in a tournament total of 19.9, earning them a 7th place finish. Their Big Fish payout was $310.
John and Lorenzo Rossetti won the event with 30.11.
