Toho Marine Elite One Man Series – April 1st, 2017 – Harris Chain – Buzzard Beach
Beautiful Morning at Lake Harris!
The 3rd Elite One Man Tournament of 2017 launched from the Buzzard Beach Boat Ramp on April 1st – It was a beautiful morning with just a slight breeze, with a forecast of light and variable winds for the day. 42 Boats filed out of the boat basin as the sun started to peek above the horizon. With at least 5 lakes, and miles of canals, it didn’t take long for everyone to disappear across the lake with the thoughts of giant fish dancing through their heads!
When it came time to weigh in it became increasing evident that although many had hoped to come in with a big bag of Harris Chain Giants, most had found the bite to be surprisingly tough. Out of 42 boats, only 2 anglers managed to pass the 20lb. mark, and only 24 had managed to bring in a limit to the scales. More surprisingly, 14 anglers either opted not to weigh in, or had not managed to catch anything all day!
Rick Danner – 1st Place & Big Fish!
Rick Danner managed to top the field, with an 8.74lb. Piggy that took Big Fish Honors, and anchored his winning bag of 21.97lbs.
Jeremy Tate – Weighed in with a 20.9 lb bag worth $610!
In 2nd was Jeremy Tate who was just over a pound away from taking the lead with 20.90lbs worth $610.00.
Scott Wilbanks earned $290 for 3rd place!
3rd place went to Scott Wilbanks with a solid bag of fish that weighed in at 18.11lbs and earned him a check for $290.00.
Rounding out the Top 5 were Mark Lundgren with 16.36lbs, and Vernon Kemp with 15.72lbs.
After the weigh in was done there was a raffle for everyone who entered the tournament, but did not earn a coveted check. First up was a rod from Enigma Fishing which was awarded to Ryan Hoover for finishing 1 spot out of earning a check. The rest of the items from TH Marine, Ardent, Bob’s Machine and the rest of our great sponsors were all raffled off while the checks were being written.
This month’s Enigma Rod winner!
The next tournament is May 13th on Lake Okeechobee launching from Scott Driver Park! There will be another tournament launching from there so we will be weighing in at 4pm. Also, please make sure to get there early as the ramp will be very busy. Anglers may also launch from Okeetantie and idle up to Scott Driver.
