There weren't many surprises at the fourth Metro Reservoir Anglers, Inc. tournament of the year Saturday, August 22nd at Liberty Reservoir. The same three teams placed in the money just as they did in the first Liberty tournament this year. Again, 1st place went to the team of Chad and Lenny Wisner with 22.95 lbs. This win came by a dramatic finish with each of them catching an approximate 3.5 lb fish in the waning moments in the boat ramp area providing a huge upgrade. (For those keeping track, Chad and partners have won all tournaments on Liberty this year: 2 MRA tournaments, 1 EBA, and the Weekday Warrior Open.)
Second place went to the team of Don Kosdemba and Gary Gangi with 21.79 lbs. Taking third was the team of Matt Elliott and Victor Rini with 21.02 lbs. In all there were 5 bags with over 20 lbs. which is very impressive for any August tournament on any of our 3 lakes and especially given the bluebird, relatively calm day.
Congratulations to all the winning teams. See the Tournaments page for complete results and updated Anglers Of The Year standings - a race which is tightening up.
