Chesapeake Pro Teams /SATURDAY Division McDermott and Gambill Win Inaugural Saturday Chesapeake Pro Teams Tournament Saturday, March 21 was the first ever tournament in the new Saturday Chesapeake Pro Teams Division. Champions today were Bill McDermott and Mike Gambill fish- ing for the Susquehanna Fishing Tackle Pro Team. Boasting a 5th place finish in the recent TOC at Oneida Lake, Bill and Mike put together a huge catch that weighed 19.53 to best the field by nearly 5 pounds. In addition to certificates they pocketed Option Pot #1 cash and winners checks totaling $1160. In all, they won $1385. Congratulations! John Shumate and Ron Swanston came to the scales blanket- ed under the cliché…’If you’re only gonna catch one, it may as well be a good one!’ Fishing with a lipless crankbait they boated the big bass of the tournament…a hefty 6.45 largemouth! This earned them a certificate, a check for $220, and a beanie and floating sun- glasses donated by new sponsor AKINETIX (Athletic Kinetics) (www.akinetix.com).

The team of Brian Bylotas and Kevin Park made the trip from NE Pennsylvania and put on a clinic on how to catch fish under a tough bite. They weighed in a limit of 14.72 lbs that included a fat 5.35lb largemouth. They won the tourney, lunker and the option pot. Way to go. Robert and Rodney Hudson teamed up and came in second. These two are tough on this lake and a team to contend with anytime they are on the water. The local team of Rick Tilley and Johnny Martin showed again how consistent they are and came in 3rd.

Greg Wilder and Fred Downey Repeat Champions in Potomac Winter Finale’ On this final morning of the 2008-09 Potomac Winter Survivor Division tournament 10 teams again braved the cold rain in search of the same big bass that appeared at the scales in yesterdays tour- nament. With the weather conditions mimicking yesterday’s the contestants ventured all directions on the Potomac River hoping for those five good bites. Kevin Mahoney and Doug Hull only weighed in 3 bass, but they were all solid as the scales read 12.35 pounds. 2 more like those and today’s outcome might have been different. They finished in 5th. Nice job! Ed Riley and Justin Riley capped off another stellar season with a 4th place finish thanks to 5 bass that weighed 15.28 pounds. Con- gratulations, guys! For the second consecutive day Ron Farren and Danny Rodriguez wound up in 3rd place by the smallest of margins with 5 bass for 17.62 pounds to receive plaques. Way to go! Bryan Schmitt and Dave Wilder locked up the AOY title with a back-to-back 2nd place showing today by weighing in 5 large- mouth that totaled 17.89 pounds. They collected plaques and prize money totaling $425. Beautiful work this year, guys! Repeating yesterday’s championship form were Greg Wilder and Fred Downey. They received plaques and $985 in prize money giving them a weekend payday of $2175! Good Work! Thanks to all who braved the elements to fish with us again this year. Looking forward to a successful 2009-10 season!
