Saturday. club teams were in action with the participation of the 3rd and 4th year, 5th and 6th year, modified and JV teams.
Some of the best teams from across the state were in action, but unlike years past, attendance was a little lower than usual for the club tournament and organizer Chad Green says there’s a reason for that. .
“It’s going to be a slightly shorter day than last weekend. This weekend is a huge weekend for women’s tournaments across the country, so we have our little niche here in the North Country and we bring the girls here from most of New York State,” said said Green.
Day 3 of competition is in the books at the 2022 Guaranteed Rate Bassmaster Elite at the St. Lawrence River in Clayton and Day 2 leader Jay Przekurat will take the lead on the final day of competition.
Przekurat hauled 5 fish for 24 lbs 12 oz, bringing his 3 day total to 77 lbs 1 oz. That gives him a nearly 3-pound lead over Bob Downey heading into the final day of competition.
Przekurat says there is a reason why he has done so well in the tournament so far.
“We do a lot of this fishing back home. I fish Sturgeon Bay a lot and this place is almost identical to this one. The whole structure is the same, it’s the Great Lakes and I love fishing the Great Lakes and I love catching big little mouths. I don’t know, I guess I just got the talent for it this week,” Przekurat said.
