Frank Vida wins at the Connecticut River 

ATHENS, Ala. –  Frank Vida won the  American Fishing Tour presented by American Bass Anglers, Connecticut Division 6 tournament, held on the Connecticut River.  Running out of the Salmon River State ramp landing, first-year member Frank Vida from New Fairfield, Connecticut caught the only 5-fish limit of bass of the day that weighed in at 9.94-pounds.  The river fishing and catching were very difficult due to heavy rains and storms that pounded the area all week long, but Frank was still able to find them.  He said he caught them on a spinnerbait and senko off of the docks in some of the marine coves.  Included in his limit was a 3.39-pound largemouth being good enough for the big fish of the day. For his efforts, he took home $476.00 in cash.

In second among the competitors, Tom Dupuis from Terryville, Connecticut caught four-bass weighing 6.51-pounds. He caught his fish on topwater and chatter baits and left the ramp $200.00 richer. Rob LIss from Glastonbury, Connecticut also had four-fish weighing 6.49-pounds, good enough for third place and $79.00

The next Division 6 tournament will be the year ending two-day event held on August 11&12, 2018 at Lake Zoar and LIllinonah.  Only ABA members who have already completed a minimum of four one-day tournaments will be eligible to fish it.
