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.
