First 2019 MassB.A.S.S. Nation High School Tournament
Webster Lake: April 28th
Jerry Ramasci has been the rock behind the High School tournaments for many years. A few years ago he had one hip replaced, but last week he had the other. (Good thing he only has two.) Obviously, a few days after major surgery, Jerry was not up to running the first high school tournament of 2019. No harm done, MassBASS Nation members came out of the woodwork to help run the tournament.
The weather forecast was not favorable with rain expected by midday. We made the decision to have the tournament end an hour early and the weigh-in started at 2 P.M. Webster Lake is famous for its big bags in the spring, but the off and on cold weather and rain for the two weeks prior kept most of the fish’s mouths closed. To make matters worse the rain was early and it came with a biting wind. The water temp never went beyond 56/57.
As always there were people that caught fish. Not many – 8 teams were skunked and 3 teams caught one fish. Very tough, but three teams came in with a 5-fish limit. The team of Romano Duncan and Jake Heath won with a limit and 9.76 pounds. Close behind was Nate Smith and Brody Trask with 5-fish weighing 9.18. Nick Frumkin and Andrew Lang had 8.15 pounds. 17 ounces separated 1st from 3rd.
MBN wants to thank all of the 23 boaters that gave up their Sunday for these school kids. They are the future of this sport and it is very important that we show we care about them and their desire to be great in this sport.
