Okay, I am definitely keeping it short this time. I have another tournament in five hours.

Tonight was pretty awful weather-wise. There was a short delay to the start of the tournament, fifteen minutes or so, due to a storm rolling through. The rest of the night was pretty much wet and windy. No fun at all.

We had 18 anglers and paid out four spots.

We also did a side pool for pickerel lunker, which I won with an 18-incher. I also placed fourth with 67.25. I had one good bass and a bunch of dinks.

Third went to John Ferreira, who had 67.50.

With 69.50, Bruce Levy nabbed second place.

As for first…well, Peter Arruda almost went home after a 19.25 was DQ’d for facing the wrong way on the board. (Rookie mistake for a MAKB veteran! Shame shame shame.) Before leaving, though, he decided to tie on the Spro Rat 50, and within about 20 minutes hauled in two giants—a 20.50 and a 21.50!

Even with three dinks rounding out his limit, those two beastly bass were plenty to give him the win by nearly six inches! And lunker, of course.

Congrats, man! And everyone else. Great job.

Gotta give a nod to Normand LaChapelle and Ryan Demers, who were both fishing their first ever tournament and stayed until the end! Hope to see you guys at another one.

Our next tournament is the Three Lake Throwdown on September 29. Before that, though, is the KBF TRAIL event we’re hosting on the Charles River.

Congrats again, fellas!

(Thanks for the tomatoes, Donald!)
