Junior Bassmasters Dedicate Tourney To Late Dick Gibson

Updated: Aug 13, 2020

A day at Lisbon Beach is always a great experience for all involved.

The Northern New York Junior Bassmasters held their August Tournament out of Lisbon Beach on Sunday with some nice catches, sportsmanship and the sharing of a love for fishing and the St. Lawrence River.

The tournament was dedicated to Dick Gibson, a longtime member of the Northern New York Bassmasters Club and supporter of the Junior Bassmasters club. Gibson died unexpectedly the weekend before after he and his son, James Gibson, placed second in a NNY Bassmasters Club Tournament staged on Black Lake.

The NNY Junior Bassmasters offered their support for former club member James Gibson and his family and thanked the adult boaters and the club's sponsors.

In the Junior Club Division at Lisbon Beach the leaders were: First Place - Owen Ames 11.33 pounds, Second Place - Easton Losey 10.17, Third Place - Jackson Fortin 10.08.

The Lunker Award went to Kaleb Kiah with a 3.36 pound bass and the Sportsmanship Award went to Blake Woods In the High School Division the leaders were: First Place - Chase Jacobs 15.86, Second Place - Ty Jacobs 12.97, and Third Place - Jordan Duprey 8.73. The Lunker Award went to James Wilson at 3.89 pounds and the Sportsmanship Award went to Cooper Bennett
