TJ Svec Claims Second Victory
TJ Svec of Chesapeake, VA won the Ram American Fishing Tour D13, Virginia tournament hosted on Kerr Lake. The event was held on June 10, 2017, launching out of Rudds Creek near Boydton, VA.
On what would appear to be a tough day off fishing, someone always figures the fish out. TJ Svec would be the one that figured them out today. Svec brought in a five fish limit that weighed 15.28 pounds, he topped the field by six pounds. He anchored his bag with a 3.84 pound bass, that took big bass for the event. This makes TJ's second win for the division this season, moving him one step closer to AOY.
John Gillis of Portsmouth, VA took second place. Gillis brought in a five fish limit weighing 9.28 pounds, he anchored his bag with a nice fish weighing 3.01 lbs.
1. TJ Svec 15.28 lbs.
The next event of the season is 07/15/2017 on Lake Gaston.
