Billy Roe Takes the win on Wequaquet Lake

On a bright sunny day, ABA AFT Division 5 ventured out on Wequaquet Lake, Centerville, MA on Sunday, April 22, 2018. At registration, the air temps were in the high 30s and when the sun came up, they rose to the mid 50s. The winds were from the NW at 5-10 mph & the water temps were in the high 40s and topped out at 50 degrees, as the day wore on.

Now, one may think with these conditions, the bass would be in feeding mode but, to the contrary, the opposite was in effect. Because this lake is super clear, most anglers said they could see the bass and the bass were very spooky and took off at the angler’s slightest movement. 

When the scales closed, Billy Roe was declared the Champion with one fish that locked in the scales at 6.32 lbs. Billy’s one fish nosed out Tab Brown's 5 fish limit by .01 oz. for the win.  Way to go Champ & I think I saw Billy's sheepish grin as he accepted the winner's cash plus the big bass pool monies. Billy caught his largemouth in 8 feet of water on a white Chatter Bait tipped w/a Yamamoto Zako white swim bait.

The top 3 anglers were:

1st place:  Billy Roe -   1  fish - 6.32 lbs.
2nd place: Tab Brown - 5 fish - 6.31 lbs.
3rd place:  Dan Rose -  4 fish - 5.95 lbs.

Our next tournament will be at Mashpee/Wakeby Pond, Mashpee, MA on Sunday, May 6, 2018 and register w/Director Dan Rose @ drose116@comcast.net or online by clicking  here

These anglers are earning valuable points toward the divisional angler of the year title. The points champion from each division will compete in the annual  American Bass Anglers AFT Angler of the Year Final Round at the  American Fishing Tour National Championship.

The  American Fishing Tour offers low cost, close to home bass tournaments that are designed for the weekend angler. All ABA anglers fish for money and points.
