Siblings net first FFCBC title

By Joey Payeur, Fort Frances Times Ltd.

Steve and Scott Sandberg lived by a basic philosophy all week—keep moving and the rest can’t catch you.
The Minnesota-based brothers (from Brooklyn Park and Ham Lake, respectively) netted a bounty of bass as they zipped around Rainy Lake for three days that translated into their first victory at the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship.
The Sandbergs took over the lead after Day 2 on Friday, then finished off the rest of the 92-team field with a Saturday haul of 16.24 pounds.

From being a last-minute addition to the field that finished in 58th place on their first try to reaching the pinnacle, Steve and Scott Sandberg have travelled a long river together.
“We really dedicate this win to each other,” said Steve Sandberg, a Brooklyn Park, Mn. resident about his Ham Lake, Mn.-based brother, whom he joined forces with to win the $20,000 first prize at the 21st-annual Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship on Saturday at the Sorting Gap Marina.
