CLINTON LAKE BLOW DOWN
With high winds being forecasted, the Ram American Fishing Tour D39 event on Clinton Lake April 2nd was cut short at 1:30PM. The windy condition did not slow down the competitors, with over half of the field weighing in a catch.
Matt Marques of Sence, Illinois bested them all with a winning weight of 13.85 pounds. Matt is a non-boater and won his first bass tournament.
Mike James, from Coal City, Illinois finished in second place.
Jerry Sandretto made the most of his one fish taking 3rd place and big bass with 5.71 pounds.
I was glad everyone made it back safe in what ended up being some crazy conditions at the end of the day. Congratulations to all that fished.
The next event for Division 39 will be held at Braidwood Lake and we will launch out of the south ramp. The event will be held April 24th. Registration will begin at 5am with our pre-tournament meeting at 6am.
These anglers are earning valuable points toward the divisional angler of the year title. The points champion from each division will compete in the annual Ram American Bass Anglers AFT Angler of the Year Final Round at the Ram American Fishing Tour National Championship.
