North Rose, NY, September
10, 2022 - Southern Tier Bassmasters held their
final points tournament of the 2022 season and Brady
Schoonover, once again, leveled the hammer on Lake Ontario
Launching from Bay Bridge Marine
on Sodus Bay, Schoonover piloted his Skeeter boat out
of the bay and onto Lake Ontario proper. The previous
time this season he came out of Irondequoit Bay, roughly
30 miles west of Sodus. Either way, he had these fish
dialed in and brought a 5-fish limit to the scales weighing
in at 20.92 lbs for the win. He also anchored his sack
with a 5.26 lb. tournament lunker. This win also cemented
his first place standing as the 2022 Angler of the Year.
In second place with a limit
of bass tipping the scales at 17.30 lbs. was Charlie
Prince. His bag was anchored by a 4.78 lb. bass.
Finishing a close third place,
was Jeff Kilbury with a 5-fish limits totalling 17.10
Non-boater, Tom Salle, weighed
five fish for 15.71 lbs. He anchored his bag with a
5.05 lb. beauty.
Fishcare was very important,
especially for the beautiful smallmouth bass on a very
warm day. In order to not release these fish in the
super warm and shallow waters of the marina, they were
loaded back into the livewells and taken out to deeper
and cooler water and were released unharmed.
