NBAA Indiana State Tournament

NBAA Indiana State Tournament Report 2014

 

It was a cool and blustery day on the Ohio River. All year some of the best Ohio River fisherman have struggled, so this was not going to be an easy challenge.

 

Arriving to vie for the State Championship were 7 teams. Fishing from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm it was just as expected a tough day on the water with only 1 limit weighed in. One team spent most of its day on the Main River, while others fished the Main river and creeks feeding the Ohio River.

Cleanest water was on the Main River. All the creeks were stained and with limited sunlight the bait was not near the surface.

Indiana State Tournament

Top Finisher:  Mark Johnson with winning weight of 6.92 lbs and the only limit.

 

2nd place:      Fred Von Rissen and Tim Rowe    -        4 fish – 5.26 lbs

 

2 Places were paid for Big Bass

Largest Big Bass was:        2.42 only fish for Todd Gadberry and Jerry Duncan

2nd Big Bass:                              2.38 by Mark Johnson

It what was a soggy, windy, and cool day on Hubbard lake, 10 teams took to the water for the 2014 1 on 1 National Championship to battle the elements looking for 5 solid bronze-backs to bring in come weigh in. Fishing proved to be tough for anglers, and they didn’t get much help from mother nature. With intermittent rain showers and increasing winds only 3 anglers had fish to bring in to weigh. We want to take a moment to thank the Alpena CVB for hosting this event, and being such great hosts for our anglers!

Coming in 1st place with 17 pounds 11 ounces was Bob Kowal! He walked away with $600 in cash and a brand new PowerPole ($1,599 value). He accredited his victory to a simply bass catching technique: tube jigs. Congratulations Bob!

Coming in at 2nd Place was Robert Killick weighing in 4 fish at 10 lbs even. He also got big bass honors of the day with a 4 pound 11 ounce beauty! 2nd Place was $400 and a new Evinrude prop. Big Bass was worth an additional $100 to his winnings!

“Last Chance” Division gives opportunity to MI NBAA Anglers to qualify to fish the 2014 MI State Championship!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PONCA CITY, Okla. (July 30, 2014) –The National Bass Anglers Association, (NBAA).

NBAA Division 18 & 36 director Pete Lusis has annonced he will be running a “Last chance” Division called the Last Chance Circuit, giving those anglers that have not qualified for the Michigan State Championship, a chance to attend this event.

The state championship is being held on the now famous HUBBARD LAKE near Alpena Michigan. The National Bass anglers association (NBAA) in conjunction with the Alpena area visitors bureau will be hosting the largest NBAA  event of the year.
