Weeks, Wright win at Winnisquam

NH BASS Nation held its first open team tournament of 2017 on May 7 at Lake Winnisquam launching out of the state ramp and holding the weigh in at Bartlett Beach. The STA-BIL Start Boat sent the 50 teams out on the water after making sure everyone’s safety equipment including livewells were functioning properly.

The ever-tough team of Pete Weeks and John Wright were sitting atop the leaderboard by days end. They brought in a limit of four fish for 15.04 pounds, all smallmouth. Pete and John targeted pre-spawn smallmouth all day by throwing jerkbaits in 5-10 feet of water. The team of Pat McCarthy and Josh Klein brought in the Dobyns Rods Lunker Largemouth with a beautiful 5.67-pounder. The lunker smallmouth went to Robin Roystan and Dave Andrews with a healthy 4.24-pounder. Full results can be found here

Pete and John are defending their Team of the Year title and took the early lead in the newly titled Humminbird Team of the Year race. Congratulations to Bryan Dexter for taking home the Portland Yacht Services Top Finisher contingency payout. Our next open team trail event is on Newfound Lake on June 18th. The top three teams from our trail will move on to fish the Toyota Bonus Bucks Bassmaster Team Championship.
