Finally, a Repeat

It took 8 years in coming but someone finally did it. What you ask? Probably the next hardest thing to accomplish besides being repeat Super Bowl Champs, repeat as Southern Tier Bassmaster Angler of the Year.

On a rainy, miserable day, September 2, 2006, at Sodus Bay history was made. Noel Good

became the first member to win the coveted club AOY award for a second time. To make it even more impressive he did it in back-to-back years.  

It all began June 24, 2006 at the opening tournament on a tough Cayuga Lake. Noel found bedded smallies and fooled 5 of them weighing 14.81 pounds to finish second. Over the rest of the season he put two thirds and a ninth place together to amass 46.96 pounds and 387 points. Both the points and the final weight were fourth highest over the last 8 years. Noel still holds the highest points at 394 and total weigh of 54.63, both set in 2005.

No club member would argue the point that winning the AOY is as tough an accomplishment as there is within STBM. To do it twice is in incredible. To do it back-to-back is nearly impossible. The bar has just been raised by a very gifted fisherman. Congratulation Noel on an award well deserved.
