What is the winning number to walk away with the top prize in the Bass Pro Shop’s Bassmaster Northern Open? For Ott DeFoe it is 62 pounds and 5 ounces that takes the victory and the prize for the hometown guy. Douglas Lake was alive with anglers all looking for the big one and to secure a spot in the Bassmaster Classic in February of 2015. Along with the satisfaction of being the top of the leader board on Saturday afternoon, Defoe won an estimated $40,000 Triton 19XS/Mercury 200 ProXS rig and a little more than $8,000 in cash. The real prize for DeFoe is clinching the win on Douglas Lake, where the familiar waters had previously eluded him. This was DeFoe’s fifth major on home tuff and five was the lucky number. DeFoe was leading going into the final day of the tournament and he put his knowledge of Douglas Lake, as well as his talent as a professional angler, to good use making locals happy with an up stream win.
