Le Homme Dieu Chain - 6/30/2024

1st Place - Troy Schwab and John Wicht III

2nd Place - Paul Lewis and Brian Krause

3rd Place - Tanner Tetrick and Bob Chapin

Tough cold front conditions and high winds greeted the Reel Team anglers Saturday June 29th on the Le Homme Dieu Chain.  As always somebody always seems to put the pieces of the puzzle together and weigh some big bags no matter how bad the conditions are.  

The team of John Wicht III and Troy Schwab did just that and weighed a bag of 6 green fish that weighed 21.29. They had a 4.57 kicker that helped them on their way to their first Reel Team Bass victory!  Great job guys!

With a bag of all largemouth weighing 21.17 the team of Brian Krause and Paul Lewis took 2nd on the day. They're big fish was 4.01.

Rounding out the top 3 was the team of Bob Chapin and Tanner Tetrick. They had 21 lbs. and had a big fish of 3.82. They also had all largemouth. 

We have a new leader in the Lakes Area Arms Big Bass of the year award. The Team of Todd and Chris Kelm caught a giant 5.07 largemouth!  If that holds with one event to go, they will receive two $500 gift certificates to Lakes Area Arms. That big bass also propelled them to a 6th place finish on the day.  They also recieved $300 for big bass of the event from FXR.

After 2 events the Team of Tony Hatten and Matt Seymour have a slim one-point lead over the teams of Cody Rupert and Dustin Ziesemer, and Matt Gilbertson and Shawn Olson for Team of the Year.  It will be interesting to see how it will shake out down on Minnewaska.

Our next event is on August 3rd on Lake Minnewaska. Take off and weigh in will both be at Waters Edge in Starbuck. Tournament hours will be 6:30AM to 2:30PM. We will have another full field.  Just a reminder that Highway 114 from Lowry to Starbuck will be under construction so you may need to take an alternate route to Starbuck.

We would like to thank our sponsors once again for all they do for Reel Team Bass. Please support Lakes Area Arms, Alex Pro Firearms and FXR.
