NICK KOEHNE TOPS THE FIELD
Our 4th event of the year was held at the Cal/Sag on June 11th. It was hot and blustery day but all 30 anglers competing weighed at least one fish! Mike Koenig said, “First time I have seen that since I began tournament fishing.”
Nick Koehne of Manteno, IL had the winning bag with a mixed bag of large and small mouth bass weighing 12.29lbs.
Second place went to Mike Miklos of Orland Park, IL with a five fish limit weighing 10.40 lbs. anchored with a 3.40 lb. fish.
Gregg Buda of Joliet, IL took third with a limit of fish weighing 10.39 lbs. with a 2.60 lb. bass for the anchor.
Fourth place goes to Chuck Sabia of Ottawa, IL with a limit weighing 10.15 lbs. anchored by a 2.92 pounder.
Robert Ward of Round Lake Park, Il caught the BIG R Bass of the tournament with a weight of 3.52lbs. That small mouth got Ward a $50 gift card from BIG R STORES and a nice trophy for the mantel.
The 3 Big R fishing tackle give away winners were Nick Koenhe, Jeff Lopez, and Chad Cryder. Thanks again for Greg Daniles of BIG R Morris for your continued support.
The next event for Division 39 will be held 07/16/2017 on Lake Springfield.
