Brock and Cole Win
STBM Final Open on Conesus


Vinny Brock has made a habit of winning STBM open tournaments on Conesus Lake in 2009.

Back in July he teamed up with TJ Valle to win the Russ Louk Open. The changing of partners for Saturday October 17, 2009 to Todd Cole didn’t seem to affect the final result as they teamed up to catch a limit weighing 18.11 pounds. Their winnings totaled $381.15 as they beat out 20 other teams.

Noel Good, fishing alone, was second with 17.30 pounds. He took home $219.45. Third place and $ 242.55 went to the team of David Wise and Dom Powell with a 17.25 five fish limit. Their limit was anchored by the tournament lunker at 6.27 pounds. Gerhard Leur and Wally Brown teamed up to catch a 10.74 pound limit good for 4th place and $80.85.

This ends the 2009 Southern Tier Bassmaster season. Thanks to all who participated. See you in 2010.
