Sixth and final Tournament for the Eastern Division
The R & B Bass Circuit Eastern Division hit Coldwater Lake on September 10th with 29 boats for the final tournament of the 2016 regular season. Leading up to the tournament anglers stated the bite would be tough. Heavy rains throughout the proceeding weeks left the water high and the fish hiding. An overnight thunderstorm and misty rain throughout the day didn't make it any easier on the anglers as they attempted to figure out the tough bite.
Although a tough day for many of us, in the end it took 13.26 Lb. to win, and participants weighed in 60 bass and 115.96 pounds of fish.
On behalf of Myself and Greg Rekeweg, it has been a pleasure to serve as directors for the first year of the eastern division. We both appreciate your patients throughout the year and vow to a better job next year. It is our sincerest hope that ALL had a good time and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
Big Bass : Aaron and Bob Todays largest bass was 3.86 lb. narrowly edging out long time friends the team of Gardenour and Ware for top bass honors. For their efforts Bob and Aaron netted another $232.00 in prize money and to our total amazement Bruick narrowly escaped the "Wrath of Ware" staying dry.
