3rd ANNUAL DETROIT RIVER OPEN

Recommended Posts

For those of you who fished this event this year, here are some of the results posted by Dan Kimmel.  I and my partner did not do so very well, although we had fun, we did catch a limit for 11.74:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jim Clauser and John Robiadek won the NBAA Detroit River today, June 20, 2009 with 5 smallmouth bass weighing 21.86 pounds good for $5,000. They also took 2nd big bass with a 5.41 pounder good for another $200.

Roy Randolph and his partner took 2nd with 5 smallies for 20.57 pounds to take $1,500.

Don Fowler and partner finished 3rd with 5 smallies for 20.15 pounds - I think they won $700 or $1,000. They also took 3rd big bass good for $170 with a 5.15 pound toad.

Overall big bass was a 5.45 pound smallmouth bass.

The top 12 finishers took money for the 89 boats that braved the rain and wind today. 12th place was 16.58 pounds. Another dozen teams or so had 15 pounds and up.

Full results and pictures should be up on the www.nbaa-bass.com web site soon.

Doug and I finished in the mid 20 places with just over 15 pounds despite the wind and missing or losing a good number of pecking bass. Though St. Clair is a great place to fish, it was a little squirrelly today, but still a pretty good day of fishing that started with my hooking a keeper on my first cast of the morning as soon as my bait hit the water... before I even had my hand on the reel handle

This is a cool tournament with lots of future potential. The weigh-in was held right at St. Jeans ramp this year, but NBAA is looking at working with the city of Detroit closer again next year. Negotiations are ongoing.
