March 24th 2018 MANISTEE RIVER AND MANISTEE BEACH/PIER TOURNAMENT REPORT
Scott Maddox brought in 3 fish totaling to 77 1/8” inches, which secured first place. Nick Brown brought 2 fish to the weigh in totaling 44 3/4” for second place. Allison Platt brought one 25 1/4” fish to the weigh in for third place. On the beach, no fish were caught, but new members Uriah and Eric Taylor were excited to learn “how to” from Eric Braden and Bill Dodge.
The MWS team collectively brought in 43.75lb of Steelhead, and the DAS team brought in 36.45lb collectively. It should be said that it was close as DAS did have some challenges with a lost stringer of fish, and fish cleaned prematurely before the weigh-in, which certainly impacted the results. Nevertheless this gave MWS back to back bragging rights for the first time in history!
