Rich Johnson and Jim Shamp
brought a record setting limit of bass to the
scales weighing 25.19 pounds to win the Southern
Tier Bassmaster’s final open tournament
of the 2013 season, Saturday October 19, 2013
sponsored by Goods Drywall and Construction. Their
limit easily surpassed the seven year record of
24.69 pounds held by the team of William McKelvey
Sr. and Andy Marino set on July 2, 2005 during
the Russ Louk Memorial Tournament on, oh yes,
Conesus Lake. Their winning limit was anchored
by the tournament lunker, a 6.68 pound largemouth.
For their efforts they collected 1st place plaques
Second place was
taken by the team of Evan Perry and Dave Soper
for their limit weighing 19.89 pounds good for
a $165 payday.
Third place and $82.50
went to Jacob and Billy Perkins for their
19.49 pound limit.
