Norman Ahrens wins at Conesus

June 28, 2008 - On a day where fishing was tough, rain and wind created boat control problems and only half the field of 29 anglers could manage a limit, one guy beat all the elements.

First year member Norman Ahrens began his STBM tournament season on a winning note as he came up big
with a 5 fish limit of bass weighing 16.48 pounds to take first place and $301.50 on Conesus Lake, June 26, 2008. He now has the early lead in the 2008 Angler of the Year race with the 100 points that goes with a first place.

Second place finisher Bob Elliott’s limit weighed in at 14.99 pounds. He took home $184.25 for his efforts. Third place and $108.88 went to Bob Green with 14.88 pounds. Ted Barth took 4th place and $75.38.

2007 defending A.O.Y Joe Abt caught the big bass for the tournament, a 4.87 pound largemouth. That one fish earned him $145.

Southern Tier’s next tournament is the Russ Louk Memorial Open. It will be held Saturday July 5, 2008 on Conesus Lake. The tournament is sponsored by Bison Scaffold & Mason’s Supply Inc.
