We just concluded the last tournament of the season which was the Big Baller Tournament and overall it went really good. We had 43 anglers with one of those being a youth angler and 28 legal fish were caught. I dont have the paperwork yet but I do have the winners so I figured I would post. 1st place was won by Chad Lapa and Andy Lacko 2 of the nicest guys anyone could know. Congrats guys!!! Great work! Second place went to Mark Calabrese and Bish again great work fellas!!! 3rd Place went to Brian "Captain Chaos" Clark and his partner Rob Carr. Terrific job guys and special thanks to Brian "Captain Chaos" Clark for being such an unselfish individual. Truly an outstanding individual that is a great benefit to the sport. Thank you sir! I am sorry I was unable to make the tournament but want to thank John Milizia, Mike Thomas, and Mike Breen for running this tournament. It takes alot of work in the background and lots of driving time to run these tournaments. Thank you so much for taking care of the tournament for the guys! Also thank you so much to everyone that came out to fish the tournament we truly hope you enjoyed your selves! This being the first time we have run the tournament I am interested in hearing what people thought good and bad. So if you guys have suggestions or corrections on this tournament please private message me to let us know where we can improve or if you thought it was good the way it is. We would like to continue this in our rotation next year and the upcoming years and we want to make it the best possible event we can for you guys. You can also email me privately at [email protected] and let me know how we did. Thanks everyone and we hope you enjoyed your season! Here are a couple pics I have so far still waiting on the others if you guys have more please post! ... See MoreSee Less
