The 2013 begins with our "warm-up" tournament chasing after the toothy critters of the North. Congratulations to Charlie and Felix who took the win. It included this 9.5 lunker.
If there is anything you can take away from our Ticonderoga tournament, it is that this is a sport of all ages, where our determined young folk can be successful as well as our
wheelchair-ready participants. Although Terry Fleming may moan about his walk from his boat to the parking lot, his years of chasing bass on every conceivable type of water still
trumps videos, gadgets and the internet. I can remember back in the old days (yes, I’m old, too!) when Terry rubbed shoulders with the likes of Roland Martin, Bo Dowden, Rick Clunn, etc. These guys were just becoming great back then and they treated Terry as a friend.
1st Place - Felix Ortiz, Bill Swinton
The 2012 season is officially on.
The Pike Tournament is in the record books. Bill Swinton and Felix Ortiz pulled out 34 pounds in very difficult conditions. A very strong showing.
Congratulations on the win.
