Our 2016 tournament season got off to a fine start at Prettyboy reservoir on Sunday. Congratulations go out to our top 3 finishers. The team of Matt Elliot and Vic Rini claimed first place with a 6 fish bag weighing an impressive 20.32 Lbs. Second place was claimed by Craig Gordon and Holden Wolfe with an 8 fish limit weighing 16.62 Lbs. Mike Atwood and Jess Weeks won the third place prize with an 8 fish limit weighing 14.59 Lbs. The 4.92 Lb. lunker largemouth was brought in by Matt Elliot and Vic Rini. Chad Wisner and Leonard Wisner claimed the lunker smallmouth prize with a 3.68 Lb. smallmouth.
With only three 8-fish limits brought to the scales, this was certainly a challenging day of fishing for all. Congratulations to all who competed!
Thanks to the spectators who came to our weigh-in. Your participation is appreciated and enjoyed.
Our June 26th Tournament, at Prettyboy Reservoir, is just around the corner! Our strong field of top reservoir anglers will make for a very competitive season.
Be advised, our last practice day on Prettyboy will be Wednesday, June 22. After that, Prettyboy reservoir will be off-limits to all Metro anglers, until tournament day.
There is always an open invitation to the public to attend our 4:00 PM weigh-in (at the Prettyboy ramp).
We look forward to seeing all of you at the tournament.
In the past few weeks, MRA has received a number of submissions from anglers who want to fish with us. They are offering to become a co-angler for a member (or prospective member) who wants to complete, but needs a partner.
If you need a co-angler, respond by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll supply contact information, so you can talk to the candidates.
