Pete Byrnes wins on Gardner Lake 


ATHENS, Ala. – Pete Byrnes from Mount Sinai New York won the American Fishing Tour presented by American Bass Anglers, Connecticut Division 6 tournament, held on Gardner Lake.  Running out of the State ramp landing near the town of Salem Connecticut, the anglers were met with bad weather conditions causing white caps on the lake along with chilly temps that really affected the activity of the bigger fish. Pete managed to catch a small five-fish limit of bass only weighing 6.04 pounds, but it was good enough for the win.   He said he caught all of his fish on a green pumpkin jig with a small black blue beaver trailer all in two feet of water. For the victory, Pete took home $376.00 in cash.

In second among the competitors, non- boater Ray Carmen from Selden New York also caught a small limit of bass by fishing a drop shot with small plastic baits.  He pocketed $163.00 for his efforts.

Artie Mass, another New York angler caught the only three-pound largemouth which proved to be good enough for the big fish of the day. 

The next division 6 tournament will be held on May 19,2018 at Lake Lillinonah launching out from the Steel Bridge.  For more information about this Division and future events visit www.americanbassanglers.com or contact the local Director for Connecticut, Tom Dupuis at 860-987-7371 or Assistant Director Gary McClarran at 203-578-5012.
