Welcome to the American Fishing Tour

William Wright Jr. wins at South Watuppa Pond

On a cold & blustery windy day, ABA Division 5 fished So. Watuppa Pond, Fall River, MA. When the anglers arrived for registration, air temps were in the low 30s w/water temps in the low 40s, w/a NW wind at 15-20 mph. Not a pleasant day, but the northeast angler is resilient and made adjustments. However, the bright sunny skies made conditions somewhat bearable.

At the weigh in, 18 fish were weighed in w/a combined weight of 34.39 lbs for an average weight per fish of 1.92 lbs. and all fish were released alive.

When it was all said & done, William Wright Jr. was declared the winner w/13.65 lbs & his limit was anchored w/the big bass of the day at 3.38 lbs. Bill had his limit in the boat in the first 30 minutes of the tournament and culled all day. He fished an orange/crayfish colored Bandit crank bait and a 1/4 oz. brown/brown jig in 8 feet of water.

Top 3 anglers:
1st place: William Wright Jr. - 5 fish - 13.65 lbs.
2nd place: Billy Roe - 5 fish - 7.95 lbs.
3rd place: Dan Rose - 5 fish - 6.88 lbs.

Our next tournament will be at Wequaquet Lake, Centerville, MA on Sunday, April 22, 2018 and don't forget the lake is off limits on Thursday, Friday and Saturday preceding the scheduled tournament date.
