Welcome to the American Fishing Tour

Jim Coleman wins at Mashpee/Wakeby

On Sunday, June 11, 2017 ABA AFT Division 5 ventured out on Mashpee/Wakeby Pond near Mashpee, MA. We had air temps in the mid 80s, with a mild SSW wind and Sunny skies. The spawn was about over but some some stragglers were protecting their nests.

When the scales were closed Jim Coleman, of Bridgewater, MA was crowned the Champion with a limit bag that tipped the scales at 11.77 lbs. Jim targeted his fish with a  Bass Pro Shops "Stik-O" lime colored bait and he drop shot the bait and caught 4 smallmouths and anchored his bag with a 3.50 lbs. largemouth bass and he culled out 4 fish. This was Jim's 3rd time in the winner's circle and we congratulate him for his accomplishment.

The big bass for the tournament was a 5.81 largemouth and was caught by Louie Bernardo.

The top 5 anglers were:

1st place:  Jim Coleman - 5 fish - 11.77 lbs.

2nd place: Eli Delany - 5 fish - 11.10 lbs.

3rd place:  Dan Rose - 5 fish -  10.76 lbs.

4th place:  Jay  Guidaboni - 5 fish - 10.72 lbs.

5th place:  Louie Bernardo - 3 fish - 9.52 lbs.

Our next tournament will be at Long Pond, Lakeville, MA on Sunday, July 9, 2017
