Twenty five anglers had about all the pleasure they could stand in this year's Classic on Otsego Lake, October 20-21. They endured howling wind from the South on Saturday and howling wind from the North on Sunday, accompanied by freezing temperatures and slow fishing! Despite the conditions, most of the fourteen boats brought in limits of (mostly) smallmouths both days. Bob Luther and Vic VanSteenburg won the tournament with 10 fish weighing 26.20 lb. See Results and Standings for complete results.
