Cheat Lake: May 17, 2009

On May 17, 2009, sixteen teams launched into the Sunday morning sun hoping for a winning stringer of bass to start of the 2009 Tri-State Bass Circuit season. The team of Daniel Adams and Mickey Shaffer would end up victorious at the 2:30pm weigh-in time. They started off the season by reeling in 11.27 pounds of largemouth bass. Their stringer was anchored by the second big bass of the tournament, a 3.57 pound largemouth. Second place went to the 2008 Angler of the Year team of Brad and Terry Weese with a five fish limit of 10.72 pounds. Third place was anchored by the Allegany Motor & Pump Service big bass of the tournament, a 3.86 pound largemouth. This went to the team of Robert Allen and Trent Stanton with a weight of 10.22 pounds. We would like to give a special thank you to all those you helped put this tournament together, especially Ron and Donna DeWitt, and Todd Giarth for all their assistance. We would also like to thank our circuit sponsors Willetts Systems - Cumberland, MD; Miller Autoparts; Wee Vee Gard; Carquest - Frostburg, MD; Sure Life - Please Release Me; AMPZ - Allegany Motor & Pump Service.
