The Nothern New York Bassmasters Club members made its first visit to Tupper Lake a memorable one on Saturday. The club held its third stop of the current season on the Adirondack Region lake and club anglers adapted their skills to the conditions which produced a massive largemouth population.

Capella and Spellicy anchored their winning bag with a 5.57-pound bass and 5.32-pound big fish.
