It was a great pleasure to have 17 boats turn out to our first Weekday Warrior Tournament on June 28th at Prettybor Reservoir to benefit the Shippensburg University FLW Tournament Team. Shippensburg University teammates Kevin Hollasch and Jon Miller joined us for the competition and despite never having fished Prettyboy before the tournament, they weighed-in an above average total of 7 fish for the day.
Bragging rights for the tournament belong to Chad Wisner and Mark Onheiser with an 8 fish limit weighing 13.36 pounds. Finishing in second place was MRA President Larry Bertholdt and his partner Ian Walker with 8 fish weighing 12.57 pounds. Rounding out the top three was Holden Wolfe and Tom Meroshoff with an 8 fish limit totalling 12.07 pounds. The team of Shane Lawson and Jeff Montgomery brought the largest fish of the tournament to the scales - a 4.64 pound largemouth bass. Congratulations to all of our winners!
There was one notable abscence at the tournament and that was the team of Barger and Wilson. As it turns out, Larry Barger was undergoing surgery that same day. On behalf of all the members of the MRA, we send our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Larry. He is hoping to be back on the water by the next tournament.
In closing, I hope to see even more boats at our next Weekday Warrior event when we fish on August 9th at Liberty Reservoir. For those of you not fishing the regular MRA circuit, please feel free to come to our weigh-in at Loch Raven Resrvoir on Saturday, July 21st at 4:00 p.m.
