Modrak wins Detroit River EverStart

TRENTON, Mich. (July 16, 2011) - Mark Modrak of China Township, Mich., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 20 pounds, 7 ounces Saturday to win the EverStart
Series Central Division on the Detroit River with a three-day total of 15 bass
weighing 58 pounds, 15 ounces. For his victory, Modrak earned $32,913 and a
198VX Ranger boat with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor.

"It has been a great week," said a choked up Modrak. "It has been a battle for
me every day. I lost a lot of fish today. Every day it seemed to get harder and
harder to get those fish in the boat. Swinging those baits in the current you
get a lot of slack on the line and for some reason I just couldn't seem to get
the fish in the boat. I don't know what I have to do, maybe slow down.

"I was fishing with the Professor Mark Myers today, I felt like Gilligan. He
kept pulling in 3-pounders and it seemed like all I could catch was the 2 to 2 1/2
- pounders. Then finally I got that kicker fish, the 6-pounder, and I was able
to settle down a little bit," Modrak continued. "I was using Strike King Series
5 crankbaits and tubes most of the week.

"This is just awesome and I truly feel thankful."
