15 Year Old Matt Weber Wins on the North East River
In only his second tournament, 15 year old Matt Weber from Sykesville, MD bested the field of veteran boaters and non-boaters alike to win the Division 9 Ram American Fishing Tour event on the North East River. Running out of Anchor marina in MD, he caught two bass weighing 6.91 pounds. "Matt is a fine well-mannered young man, and an avid fisherman. It was a pleasure to fish with him all day." said boater Den Budzitowski. After the first hour of fishing with no bites, it was obvious to Matt he had to make a change. Showing incite way beyond his years he shifted to a very small finesse bait that made all the difference.

Taking third place, Mike Tenaglia caught two bass weighing 5.54 pounds.
In fourth place, Mike Piccolo caught one bass weighing 4.44 pounds.
