Monster 10-pound kicker anchors biggest limit of event

LAKEPORT, Calif. – While the trend on most bass fisheries is to see weights drop after day one in multiple-day events, then again, Clear Lake isn’t your average fishery. Day two of the EverStart Series Western Division on Clear Lake showcased some of the largest bags of the event, including a 32-pound, 1-ounce bag that boosted Jason Borofka into the driver’s seat to start the final day.
Borofka could hardly sleep last night knowing that day two was a new day that brought a good chance of catching a big bag. He had left some places alone on day one and held back on some fish, so he was eager and ready to see what the full potential of his bite was.
“I really just did a lot of the same things that I was doing yesterday,” said Borofka. “I was kicking myself a little for holding back yesterday, but I got back on my same rotation today and it paid off.”
After catching 23-4 on the first day, Borofka’s 32-1 from today helped provide a two-day total of 55-5 and a mere 1-5 lead for tomorrow.
Though it was an incredible day on the water for the Salinas, Calif., resident, it wasn’t without a few bumps in the road.
“Well, first thing this morning I ran to a point and fired a cast,” the Ranger pro explained. “When I got bit and set the hook I must have trapped a wasp between my shirt and neck because I got stung instantly. Surprisingly, I didn’t lose the fish.
