On Saturday, June 15, the Northern Division crossed the border into southern New Hampshire and hit Pawtuckaway Lake for the third event of the season!

Going into the event the anticipation was high. One reason was because it’s MAKB’s first tourney north of the border, so we couldn’t wait to see how it turned out. And secondly, the week prior at the Mountain Road Trading Post tournament on Pawtuckaway, there were some very good bags put up. To everyone’s surprise, however, the lake fished a little tougher than the week before…

But as always a lucky few put up some good numbers!

No stranger to being in the money (or flipping his kayak like he did once again), Lee Kennon clinched the top spot for the second time this season with a 92 inches anchored by a 21.25-inch largemouth!

In second place, and in the hunt for the 2024 Northern Division Angler of the Year title, was Steve Petkevitch, who put up 88.75 inches.

Following up a second-place finish the weekend prior, Ken Wood landed in the money again, taking third place with 84.50 inches.

Sean Renfroe had a solid fourth-place finish with 82.25, and Cory Walker rounded out the top five with 80.75—and this, after getting off the water an hour early by accident!

Event lunker went to Lee with his 21.25 largemouth, while lunker smallmouth was won by Jon Bandi with a 15-incher. Surprisingly no one caught a pickerel, so that lunker pool rolled over the the main lunker pool. Crazy!

Ken also won the Double Down.

It was a super-fun day out there and me and Pat were happy to see that the interest/feedback in fishing up in New Hampshire was great. We’ll definitely be doing it again next season!

As always thank you to all of our sponsors for making this trail possible! And can’t forget to thank Mountain Road Trading Post and Troy Brown for hosting us for a grill-and-chill after the event. We all had a blast and left with full stomachs!

Our next event is on July 27 on Lake Attitash, which should fish well that time of year. But if you can’t wait until then to scratch that competitive itch, we are hosting a Tuesday Night Throwdown tomorrow night at Johnson’s Pond in Groveland! And we’re looking to put another one together between now and the Attitash derby, so keep an eye out!
