Ontario take the TBF Eastern Division Championship, 16 anglers qualify for the TBF National Championship

The 2014 TBF Eastern Division Championship was shortened by one day when the second day of the event had to be cancelled due to high winds. The third day the winds still blew, not quite as hard so the event was limited to the Saint Lawrence River only.

 

Winners with fish

None of that made any difference to the 12 person Ontario squad from the TBF’s Canadian Bass Federation.  They showed up each day and fished the hand that was dealt them and still managed to take the win with their event total of 326-12 and take the title of 2014 TBF Eastern Division Champions. Connecticut finished second with 310-13 and Massachusetts locked up third with 305-07.

In the individual standings Corbyville, Ontario’s own Curtis Richardson took top honors and the Division Champions title with 39 pounds and 10 ounces.

 

ONt winners

Only nine ounces back at 39-01 was  Scott Janus from Wallingford, CT. and Thirteen ounces behind him was Burlington Vermont’s Mark Bilodeau with 38-04.
