Yesterday, forty anglers took to the water for the first MAKB Central Division event at Webster Lake. What started out as a hopeful cold but windless morning, turned into a grinding eight hours for most anglers, with only sixteen anglers turning in measurable fish. On top of that, only two anglers caught limits!

Twenty-four skunks in an event must be a record for MAKB.

Western Division member Gerald Howes took the top spot, with a limit of 81.75 inches. He even managed to cull a fish!

In his second event with MAKB, Donald Anyon secured second place with 68.00 and overall lunker with a 19.50-inch largemouth; while Eastern Division member Matthew Conant finished third, with five fish clocking in at 65.00 inches.

Fourth place went to Kevin Senecal, who had four fish for 63.75; and nabbing Double Down and the last paying spot, fifth place, was Ken Wood with four fish for 62.50.

Smallmouth lunker went to Carl Hartwick, who hauled in three smallmouth, which were tight-lipped for most anglers during this event. Only two other anglers caught a smallie, and only one each. Carl’s 15.75 was big enough to take the pot.

Jeff Lin’s 22.75-inch pickerel was lunker for the event (we do pickerel lunker pools in MAKB, if you didn’t know).

Congrats to all, and thank you to everyone who came out to fish with us. Happy to see new faces and the usual suspects yesterday. Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next event at A-1 on May 11th.
