Our first tournament of the year was held in Erie, Pennsylvania. This tournament was limited to a bay only competition. Boats were launched in Presque Isle State Park. As the day went on, a cloudy morning progressed into sunshine and blue skies with temperatures reaching 59 degrees. Wind speeds picked up as the day progressed, but only reached to 12 MPH. At the end of the day, Frank Malek and Andrew Larson were able to bring in the biggest bag of 5 fish, weighing 21.28lbs. Rick Ryver and David Garbrick were close on their heels, also weighing 5 fish for a total of 18.61 lbs. Roland Paronish and Jesse Joden were able to bring in the lunker of the tournament, with a bass weighing 5.45 lbs.
