Weekend Angler Wins Tourney In Last 5 Minutes
Mike Callahan from Winchester, VA is one step closer to the ABA National Championship with a first place win and $575 in an American Fishing Tour bass tournament held on the Potomac River in Maryland this past weekend. He caught a five-bass limit of 17.25 pounds for the victory.
Callahan fished grass beds near the mouths of two creeks using a black and red chatter-bait. Though the bite was slow it picked up as the tide came back in and the fish moved deeper in the grass. Callahan caught a good 10 keepers right up to five minutes before check-in time when he was able to cull a two-pounder with a 3.5-pound bass
Brett Ewing took second place with five bass weighing 16.65 pounds, anchored by the Big Bass in the tournament, a 5.28-pound largemouth bass.
Danny Moffat Sr. finished third with 15.55 pounds.
Next Divisional Tournament: This division's next tournament will be Sunday, May 6 out of Smallwood State Park.
