Former champs earn third bass crown Moynagh, Thrun lead wire-to-wire at annual FFCBC

JJim Moynagh and Joe Thrun led on Day One and never lost a step en route to their third title at the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship on Saturday.
Their three-day total of 58.36 pounds was almost two pounds more than the second-place team and just short of the 58.62-pound tournament record set, fittingly enough, by the two Minnesotans back in 1998.
Thrun credited their 20.92-pound bag on Thursday as being key to the victory, calling it “probably our best day ever of all tournament and practice put together.”
“It was truly amazing,” he added.
Moynagh agreed, but said even after that day the victory wasn’t secure in his mind.
“You know, waiting in line, I was just squirming like a worm on a hook ’cause I didn’t know,” he laughed.
Moynagh admitted his history at the FFCBC- which now includes six top-three finishes out of his seven years on Rainy Lake-put some pressure on him to excel.
“I’m very proud of our finishes here,” he said. “The best track record of my finishes is on this lake. I didn’t want to blemish it.”
As tremendous as his record is at the FFCBC, Moynagh said this is his first tournament win in a number of years-and it was good to do it on what he calls his favourite lake.
“I wanted to make some noise and let the fish know I’m back,” he remarked. “And the fish like me here, they really do.”
