R. D. & Patti Campbell WIN First Tournament of the Year!!!
February 16, 2015
The Northeast Region held it's 2015 opening tournament on Lake Fairfield, on Sunday, February 15th. We couldn't have asked for better weather.....a far cry from last year's opener when it was 26 degrees!
We had several new couples join and we had some "old" friends return. We're so excited you've joined the NE Region...we hope you find it the BEST circuit to fish! We're all about good friends and good times. Making Memories!!!!!!
FIRST PLACE went to one of our new couples, R.D. & Patti Campbell. They had the only limit of the tournament...a whopping 23.31 pounds. That's great fishing on a lake that has an 18" minimum! Congratulations you too and WELCOME!!
SECOND PLACE was taken by John Larsen and Shari Williams! They had 3 fish that went 15.76 pounds. This was anchored by Shari's Big Bass of the tournament....a whopper that went 7.04 pounds.....She also took home Ladies Big Bass.....they took home a lot of wood and quite a bit of money!!! Job Well Done!
THIRD PLACE went to another new couple, L. W. Buck & JoAnn Madding!! They had 3 fish that weighed in at 13.83 pounds. Great job you too!
Rounding out the Top Ten:
Roger & Sandra Mahoney, 4th Pl, 10.62 lbs

A Special Thanks to: Plano Marine for putting up the additional $100 for Ladies Big Bass and the incentive for the Championship. Eagle Fork Lift (Allen Little) for sponsoring the plaques for the Northeast Region and Nestlé's for sponsoring the Ladies Big Bass plaques.
We'd also like to thank our neighbor and Bassmaster Elite member Yusuke Miyazaki. He was gracious enough to donate several crank baits and other tackle to our region. I know some of the directions on the crank baits are in Japanese, but I don't think it matters, Japanese water or American Water...they fish the same!!
A big Thanks to our other sponsors. Plano Marine, Xcite Baits, Southern Tire Mart, Scentsy, Secure-Outdoors, Dobyns Rods and Marc Mitchell Guide Service.
