The Trophy Bassmasters competed in their 4
th outing of the season as they traveled to Delaware Reservoir north of Columbus. A large field of 21 regular members and 2 guests competed from 7 am to 3pm with meager results.

Ratcliff caught a 5 bass limit of largemouth tipping the scales at 8.67lbs to secure the victory. Kelly Dearwester  followed  his victory at St Marys 2 weeks ago with another strong finish placing 2nd. Dearwester had a 5 bass limit which weighed in at 6.19lbs for the runner-up position. Boyd Downey rounded out the top 3 with 3 bass at 4.03lbs. David Gallegos landed the big bass of the day with a 2.44lb fish.  Lawson Hartman is competing this year again as a guest of the club with his member grandfather Jim. Lawson nailed 3 bass and would have finished 3rd with 5.87lbs. Lawson also caught what would have been the big bass of the day at 3.51lbs. The club is anticipating a top competitor once Lawson reaches membership eligibility age of 16. He is currently only 9.
