March 28, 2015 - Divisional Championship

Larry and Nichole Mara – Divisional Champions

March 28, 2015

 

Just two weeks ago the father daughter team of Larry and Nichole Mara locked up the division 22 anglers of year at the Desplanes River winter division. Then to show that it wasn’t just a fluke they brought in a 14.35 pound 5 fish limit to best the field during the 2015 divisional championship. Larry and Nichole’s weapon of choice was suspended jerk baits fished in 10 feet of water. When they were asked what the key to fishing the bait was, they said it was “pausing the bait during the retrieve, sometimes as long as 30 seconds”. The two also recorded the big bass of the tournament, a 3.72 pound brute.

 

Coming in second place was John Mathias. Fishing alone John brought in a 5 fish limit that went 12.00 pounds. He said he probably caught 15 keepers but couldn’t get that kicker he needed. John caught his fish using a crankbait in less than 5 foot of water.

 

The third place finishers were Adam Compton and Mike Kendall. Adam and Mike brought 4 fish to the scales t
