                                                    Tom and Shane Peirson take BPS Open crown!

Rocklin Ca. - In what was truly a battle of both "will and skill", the father and son team of Tom and Shane Peirson, fought though a tough bite and stifling heat to outlast nine other teams and emerge victorious in this weekend’s 2nd annual Bass Pro Shop Open held on Folsom Lake.

Tons of floating wood, and temperatures in the mid-nineties were major factors in this event and anglers found the bite to be “hit or miss”, as hours would go by – without and single bite, followed by periods of time where fish could be caught on every cast.

But the Peirson’s indicated that they had a pre-planned strategy to “swing for the fences” – if they were to make it to the final day, and threw big swimbaits all day long, to bag what was an incredible final-day five-fish limit that weighed 17.16 pounds and a total 3-day weight of 42.59 pounds, to capture their first Bass Pro Shops Open title.

“There is no better feeling than to win an event like this with my son”, stated a visibly emotional Tom Perison to a large crowd of spectators that attended the final day weigh-in. Shane also made a statement that reflected the close bond that he and his dad have shared since he was a mere toddler, fishing various ponds and lakes throughout northern California, so this victory was extra special.
