Another win for Shin! Fukae joins an elite group when it comes to the FLW Tour. He is only the 3rd angler in this tour’s short history to win mulitple events in a single season. Rick Clunn won two events in 2000 and David Fritts won an amazing three events in 1997.
Shin won the season opener on the “Big O”, so that is a whopping $300,000 in those two wins and a total of $303,000 in the season’s first 4 events. Shinichi changed nothing about his bait presentation most of the week, saying he elected to stay with a 4-inch, green-pumpkin Gary Yamamoto worm with a light, 3/32-ounce jig head on 8-pound-test line.
