Tim Brecht Wins on Otis Reservoir
Tim Brecht won the American Bass Anglers Division 97 tournament held June 7, 2015, on Otis Reservoir in Otis, MA.
Tim caught five bass weighing 11.64 pounds with a 3.63 pound kicker that was also the tournament lunker. For the victory, Tim took home a check for $425. All his fish were taken with a weightless Senko in very shallow water.
In second among the competitors was Jesse Via who caught five bass weighing 10.32 pounds and pocketed a check for $212. Third place was won by Mike Naventi who earned $79 for his efforts.
The top 5 were:
Tim Brecht 11.64
Jesse Via 10.32
Mike Naventi 9.38
Jim Pollard 8.87
Mark Schultz 8.39
Conditions the entire day were excellent. Water temps were mid 60's while the air warmed to the upper 70's. A moderate wind was present most of the day. Recent rain raised the very low water to near normal.
These anglers accrued valuable points toward the divisional angler of the year title. The points champion from each division will compete in the annual American Bass Anglers AFT National Championship on Lake Hartwell.
The next divisional tournament will be held 6/28/2015 on Buffumville Reservoir. Tournament hours are 0600 - 1400.
