Trophy Bass Leads Block O Boosters Fishing Derby
The Block O Boosters couldn't have asked for a better day for their first annual Fishing Derby.
A magnificent explosion of color at sunrise was followed by a warm summer day and a St. Lawrence River which was sheet of crystal.
The St. Lawrence River Bass Fishery was also on display at the weigh-in at Hosmer's Marina as Joey Kiah landed a world class lunker of 6.38 pounds to win the Adult Bass Division and Jamen Lovely followed at 5.14 pounds. The largest fish of the day was landed by Gabe Trimm who took Kids Division Lunker honors with a 7.83 northern pike.
"For our first derby things went very well. We had a great day and raised a nice amount of money for our athletes," said Tournament Director Sarah Farley.
"Because of the generosity from people who made donations all of the money went to club. We are looking forward to next year."
