2017 Season!

 

Congratulations to Mario Mills and Mike Konopacki on their win, and with that win, the DIV30 AOY championship. The AOY race came down to this last tournament with 4 teams that could take the title. It was a difficult day of fishing with many teams struggling to find keepers but MIlls and Konopacki knocked it out of the park with a 13.85 bag for the win!

I want to thank everyone who fished with us this year and am already looking forward to next year. Hoperfully I will see many of you at ST. Clair for the regional on 9-23.

Stray Casts Outdoor Cartoon Television is the glorified version of a Bass Fishing talk show. Interviewing the top Bass fishing professionals and personalities in the Bassin' biz in a way that let's just say is a "little unconventional ".

Mr. Jack Neff fishes solo for the win! Congrats Jack on a great victory. Even though the weather was cold and rainy 17 teams came out for our 2nd event of the year. Despite the weather the fish were really biting and Jack showed us that he is a veteran of tournament fishing catching his biggest fish right at the end of the day. Coming in 2nd was Steve Pierce and Rick Hill with a 5 fish limit for 13.20 and puts them in a solid lead for AOY. In the last money spot was Billings and Ellenberger with a 5 fish limit for 11.52. The AOY race is heating up so don't miss the next event on 6-10-17. We will be starting earlier on the next one so pat attention to the start times. Thank you to all the teams that came out.

Andy and I would like to thank all the teams that fished this year. It was a great time with a lot of good competition. We had the largest bass weighed in this year that I have ever seen come from tater 8.73. Looking forward to next year already. Good luck to all the IN 30 division teams in the regional!

****************************************************************************************************************

There is only one event left for the year and the AOY race is tight. Big prize for a free entry into the Lucas Oil TOC for 10k! Looking forward to our last event of the year on 8-13...

*****************************************************************************************************************

The 2nd event of the year was met with beautiful weather but terrible fishing! Rumor has it that the  lake was sprayed earlier in the week and the reason for the tough bite. Many teams struggled to find a single keeper. Bringing the only 5 fish limit to the scales was Billings and Ellenberger their weight was 7.46 and good for 1st place. In 2nd place was Joe Schultz with a 4 fish limit for 6.92. Once again the big bass award went to John Hampel who brought a 4.67 to the scale.

Thank you to all the teams that came out we are looking forward to the next event. Remember you have to fish 3 events and get 250 point to qualify for the regional. With only 3 remaining events in this division missing is not an option! In addition to qualifying is the division AOY which will get a chance to fish the Lucas Oil TOC during championship week...this is a free tournament for the divisional winners and 1st place is 10k.

See you on 6-11-2016...

Our first event of the year turned out to be awesome with many teams finding some really big fish. The weather was just right for those big fish to start moving up and many of the teams found a big kicker fish. Leading the event was Mario Mills and Mike Konopacki who had two nice kicker fish to fill their winning weight of 14.33 lbs Nice job guys and happy birthday Mario. In second place was Hampel and sub Jason Fowler. John  landed a new record BB at 8.73 a true Tater HOG!!!

Our next event will be 5-21-20-16 and we look forward to seeing everyone out there.
