Bogaosain Wins New Jersey Event

Lucas "Bogo" Bogosain won the Ram American Fishing Tour New Jersey Division 10 tournament held on September 26, 2015 at Greenwood Lake.  Division 10 was running out of Small Craft Marina in Hewitt, NJ.

Lucas "Bogo" Bogosain of Harrington Park, NJ caught five bass weighing 10.46 pounds with a 3.59 pound kicker largemouth. For the victory, Bogosain took home a check for $406.00 plus $70.00 for the optional Big Bass pot. Lucas caught his fish with a variety of techniques, however, he was using Venom Lures and Hi Seas line.  Lucas is a Collegiate Angler at Centenary College studying Communications and is planning on fishing all three Northern Opens in 2016.

In second among the competitors, Al Pallavincini of Ringwood, NJ caught 9.92 pounds of bass flipping docks and pocketed a check for $200.

Derrell Downey Sr. has finished just one place out of the money too many times to count. Finally we were able to pay Derrell $79.00 for a third place finish with 7.79 pounds of bass.
