A scary weather forecast had us debating whether to postpone this one, but since we could not come up with a suitable alternate date, we decided to tough it out. It was uncomfortably windy, but there were places to get that were protected. Most teams found fish that would eat. The results are as follows:
|Place||Winners||Fish 1||Fish 2||Total Weight||Points|
|1st||Sean Jeanneret/Justin Jeanneret||5.85||5.15||11.00 lbs||100|
|2nd||Bobby Weir/Matt Schoen||4.92||4.48||9.40 lbs||99|
|3rd||Ken Cube/Mike Pattison||3.96||4.81||8.77 lbs||98|
|4th||Bo Sullivan/Alan Chase||4.80||3.57||8.37 lbs||97|
|5th||Hunter Ray/Frankie Brogniez||3.82||4.51||8.33 lbs||96|
|6th||John Ott/Mike McClure||3.75||0.00||3.75 lbs||95|
|T7||James Whitaker/Heath Lavin||0.00||0.00||0.00 lbs||85|
|T7||Mark McDuffie/Jim Whitaker||0.00||0.00||0.00 lbs||85|
|T7||Mark Cowart/Michael Cowart||0.00||0.00||0.00 lbs||85|
For the calcuttas, Big Red went to Bobby/Matt (4.92); Trout to Bobby/Matt (16.25″); and Most Spots to Bo/Alan (11). It is always great to see a new team win a tournament…congratulations to Sean and Justin. Thanks to all of you that have fished with us this year. I think we have had a terrific season and we have some new things to try to make us even better next year. We will have a pre-2015 season meeting sometime in Dec/Jan.
Congratulations to Bobby and Matt for their first TOY championship! With the caliber of fishermen that ECRC has, this really is a prestigious and hard-earned award. I have a feeling that it may not be their last TOY. This season we had prizes for the top five TOY. One change that I want to make for next year is that we pay out to the top ten TOY…this would keep more teams involved in the TOY race and hopefully get more teams to show up more routinely.
