Tim Brecht Wins on Buffumville Lake
Tim Brecht won the American Bass Anglers Division 97 tournament held June 28, 2015, on Buffumville Lake in Charlton, MA.
Tim caught five bass weighing 15.67 pounds with a 5.06 pound kicker that was .06 pounds shy of being the big fish of the day. For the victory, Tim took home a check for $425. All his fish were taken with a weightless Senko in very shallow water. This was Tim’s second win in a row and his third win in 2015, which has put him on top in the divisional AOY race.
In second among the competitors, was Paul Figueiredo who caught five bass weighing 11.41 pounds, including his 5.12 pound lunker. Third place was won by Craig Pikul.
The top five were:
Tim Brecht 5 fish 15.67
Paul Figueiredo 5 fish 11.41
Craig Pikul 3 fish 7.41
Jim Pollard 5 fish 6.86
Mark Schultz 5 fish 6.26
It rained most of the day, clearing just in time for weigh-in. Strong winds blew for most of the day, gusting to 30mph.
