Travis Miller wins at the Ct River
ATHENS, Ala. – Travis Miller from Colchester, CT, won the Bass Pro American Fishing Tour presented by American Bass Anglers, Connecticut Division 6 tournament, held on the Connecticut River.

He was the only one to bring in a limit of fish and it was worth $331.00.00 in cash.
Placing second among the competitor's non-boater Craig Pikul from Ludlow MA weighed in three fish for a total of 5.48 pounds. Unfortunately one of them perished and it dropped his adjusted weight to 4.98 but it was still good enough for $128.00 and Gerald Paben’s 3.73-pound smallmouth claimed the big fish honors for the day.
