All the members of the GOB Bass Club would like to thank Matt and Mandy, the proprietors of "The River Rat Bait and Tackle" in Brewerton for their hospitality during this tournament.

This year we launched from The River Rat Marina and Tackle shop in Brewerton.  Blast off time was 6 AM.

The weather was partially cloudy, Temp. 71 at launch time with the wind out of the NW at 7 MPH

It was just another great day to be fishing.

Ron was the boater and Andy the non-boater

They alternated between  throwing a Yo-Zuri - Rattling Vibe in the "ghost" pattern and drop shotting Gulp Alive in 5 - 12 feet of water. Sheldon's boat.  The River Rat Marina and Tackle along with Bass Pro carry these fine products.

Again we want to thank Matt and Mandy from the River Rat Bait and Tackle shop in Brewerton for allowing us to use their launch ramp and facilities. They carry all the popular Oneida Lake walleye and bass tackle along with live bait., They also have all the up to date fishing reports available for you if you stop in and ask.
