Youghiogheny Reservoir Results: June 22, 2008

On June 22nd, 2008, seventeen teams from the Tri State Bass Circuit competed on the Youghiogheny Reservoir. This body of water snakes through the upper Appalachians on the Maryland and Pennsylvania borders and holds quality small and largemouth bass. All but two teams caught at least one legal 12 inch bass with seven teams recording five fish limits. In total, 62 fish were brought to the scales. Fish were being caught at various depths on a number of techniques ranging from jigs and crank baits to deeper drop shot rigs. Back in the winner’s circle was the Weese team with their 16.00 pound bag bolstered by the Woodlands World big bass of the tournament, a 4.30 smallmouth. Claiming second place with their 12.47 pound sack was the team of Larry and Larry Jr. Beckman. In third place was the team of Shawn Skobel and Gary Crayton with a 10.40 pound sack of smallmouth. The second big bass of the day went to Robert Allen and Trent Stanton with a 4.15 pound largemouth bass. We would like to thank all those who helped put this tournament together, Todd Giarth, John Brewer and Ron and Donna DeWitt.
