Salt City Bassmasters- Brian Rayle Go-Anywhere Tournament

Recommended Posts

On Sunday October 30th, Salt City Bassmasters hosted their annual Brian Rayle Go- Anywhere [on Oneida Lake] tournament. Ten teams of 2, which included at least 1 SCBM member, met that morning at ‘Thee Diner,’ paid their entry fees, and learned of an anonymous donation of $400. The donation was to be paid out to the teams at the end of the tournament who placed in top positions, as well as to participants who earned certain specified achievements during the tournament.

The tournament began at 7am, and the individual teams were able to choose where they launched from. At 4pm the teams all met at South Shore for the weigh in.

First place went to the team of Dereck Bigford and Joe Kazlauskas who weighed in 20.54 pounds. According to Bigford, Kazlauskas caught most of the big fish that day. The team fished tubes, spinner baits, and jerkbaits in 8 to 10 feet of water.

Second place went to the team of Mike Cusano and Craig Terpening who weighed in 20.32 pounds. The two fished in 11 to 18 feet of water and targeted smallmouths. They threw green and brown colored tubes, swimbaits, and used drop shot. They also had some action on an Alabama rig early in the morning, but the bites died off as the sun came up.

Third place went to the team of Brett Milliken and Jeff Edgarton who weighed in 19.52 pounds. The team fished crankbaits in 13 to 15 feet of water for the majority of the day.

Tom Pavlot landed the tournament Lunker smallmouth which weighed 4.8 pounds. The bass was caught on a Carolina rigged minnow bait thrown in the current.

Last place was also awarded a prize this year thanks to the anonymous donor. Barb Elliott and Rich Mattison finished at the bottom of the bunch weighing in 15.19 pounds. The two caught all their fish before 10 am and went without a bite for the rest of the day. Their bass came on senkos and soft plastic shad baits in 8 to 10 feet of water.
