Latest tournament

The final tournament of the 2014 season was the Art and Nate VanSteenburg Memorial Classic held on Otsego Lake, October 25 and 26. Fishing was a little slow, with only five of the seventeen boats able to bring in a five-fish limit both days. Bruce Hall and Vince Fink won, with 26.30 pounds including a 4-pound largemouth on the first day. See Results and Standings for details.
