The 2016 Bass Anglers Association season wrapped up this past weekend – September 10 & 11th, 2016, on Big Rideau Lake for the 2-day Classic event.
Weather patterns played a big role in the results, as Saturday was summer-like, with a light breeze and high temperatures. On Saturday night, the region was hit with a major cold front which brought heavy rains and one amazing lightning show for those staying on the lake. Sunday’s winds and colder temperatures changed a lot of the patterns for anglers in the event, but some were able to capitalize and place in the money.
A big congratulations goes out to the team of John Bevacqua and Jim Bell, who brought in 19.46lb on day 1, followed by 15.71lb on day 2, for a winning total of 35.17lb.
In second was the team of Jamie and Josh Navin, who were very consistent throughout the weekend, bringing in 16.33lbs on day 1, followed by 16.23lbs on day 2, for a total of 32.56lb.
Third place belonged to Rick Doglowicz and Randy Stoddard, who were able to bring in a big 19.13lb sack on day 1, and hang on to win some money with 12.52lb on day 2, for a total of 31.66lb.
In fourth place were last years’ Classic champions, Chris and Brad Crook, who brought in 16.32lb on day 1, and 14.54lb on day 2 – with a penalty costing them 3rd place. Tough break! Their total weight was 31.36lb for the weekend.
Big Fish on Day 1 belonged to Deanna Lefebvre, who landed a beautiful 5.42lb largemouth! Congrats Deanna!
Day 2 big fish was caught by the team of Patrick Wylie and Eddie Nicholas, who brought a nice 5.30lb largemouth to the scales. Nice fish guys!
