Latest tournament

We had an outstanding tournament on Canadarago Lake on September 7, with several new records for the year. Lou Falvo, fishing by himself, won the tournament and set a new club record with a five-fish limit weighing 22.88 lb. Plus, Lou caught the biggest fish of the year so far, at 5.86 lb. John Irons caught the biggest smallmouth so far this year at 4.30 lb. Most of the twenty teams had a good day, with the average size of fish weighed in at close to 2.5 lb.

Next Tournament

The next tournament will be held on Cross Lake, September 21, from 7 am to 3 pm. Note the slightly later time, now that the days are getting shorter
