Barry & Romaine Descaro win on Savannah River despite Tough Conditions
We all expected Floodwaters on the Savannah River to make for a tough bite. Therefore, we were not surprised that only 3 of the 7 couples brought fish to the scales. Barry & Romaine worked hard to bring 3 fish that weighed in at 4.90 lbs. to win $315 for 1st Place. Barry anchored their winning bag with men’s big fish at 1.93 lbs.
Tom & Missy Bancroft came in 2nd with 2 fish weighing in at 1.85 lbs. earning $210. Missy won ladies big fish with a 1.00 lb. bass.
Congratulations to our winners!
Since no one brought a 5 fish limit to the scale, the Berkeley Outdoors Marine Dealership sponsored $50 award was awarded to Tom & Missy Bancroft by boat draw. Courtney Vinke performed the drawing as our newest member. We welcome both Aaron Bozeman & Courtney Vinke and look forward to seeing and competing with you again real soon.
Thanks to our sponsors no one went home empty handed.
