Minderman wins EverStart Series Western Division event on California Delta

STOCKTON, Calif. - Sean Minderman of Spokane, Wash., weighed a
five-bass limit totaling 20 pounds, 15 ounces Saturday to win the EverStart
Series Western Division event on the California Delta with a three-day total of
15 bass weighing 68 pounds, 5 ounces. For his victory, Minderman earned $31,442
and a 198VX Ranger boat with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard
motor.

"It has been a while and what a great feeling," said Minderman. "It has been a
tough go the last couple of years and I have not been able to fish as much as I
would have liked to. It just feels like God has shined on me this week and I
have to thank Ranger Boats, my family including my wife Michelle, my son Kade
and my daughter Kailey."

"With the weather warming up, I figured the fish would be moving up to spawn so
I looked for areas where they would be moving into and a found a couple that I
felt would work," added Minderman. "I burnt those spots up the first two days as
I caught a 9-pounder on the first day and an 11-pounder on the second day, but
had to scramble today and God shined on me and I was able to find a spot where I
caught my big three today."

Minderman went on to say that he caught all his fish on the first day using a
Senko and on the second day he caught his fish flipping a beaver. He said he
boated his big three on the final day using a Roboworm drop-shot.
