Scott Dingwall chatted with emcee Gary Potter while his partner, Kalen Wagner, looked on during Friday’s weigh-in at Smokey Bear Park during Day 1 of the annual International Falls Bass Championship. Dingwall, who won last year’s tournament with Jeff Gustafson, joined forces with Wagner at the last minute and finished in third place overall with a two-day weight of 26.20 pounds. This year’s title was hoisted by Duane and John Peterson of Bemidji, Mn., who caught 28.35 pounds of bass from Rainy Lake and the Rainy River during the tournament.
