Vitale Takes Win on Greenwood

Art Vitale of Kenilworth, New Jersey won the AFT New Jersey D10 event held on September 17th at Greenwood Lake. D10 was running out of Small Craft Marina in Hewitt, NJ. Vitale caught five bass weighing 10.78 pounds with a 4.37 -pound kicker Largemouth. For the victory, Vitale took home a check for $337. Art caught most of his fish using soft plastic in deep weeds, Drop Shotting. The Big Fish Side pot was worth an additional $45.00. Art has won the last several events on Greenwood.

In second among the competitors was Al Pallavicini of Ringwood, New Jersey. Al caught four fish weighing 6.01 pounds. Al was pitching soft plastics on docks. He collected a check for $153. Al may have finished better but took it upon himself to rescue a jet skier. Apparently the jet skier thought it would be a good idea to “jump” a stump at wide open throttle,the stump won. Palavincini and his back boater (John Haffy) spent about an hour of their tournament time rescuing the pleasure boater. The jet skier was knocked paralyzed at the time of the incident, but was starting to move when the official rescue boats started to arrive. Al and Art are both in this week’s photo, Al is on the left.
