Second win on the season for Ehrler
Ehrler said the other bait he relied on during the tournament was a Brian’s Bee Prop Bait. He said he threw the prop bait in the backs of pockets where bluegill were spawning. He said the prop bait was effective in calm water, but when the wind picked up or he wanted to cover water he switched back to the Gunfish.

Armed with Lucky Craft and Brian Bees top-water baits, as well as the occasional wacky-rigged Senko, Ehrler attacked shallow bays with his newfound arsenal. As a result, he was able to storm into the lead on day three on hold on for 1 ½-pouind victory in the finals.
