April 23, 2022 - 15 anglers launched from the Summit Ramp on Lake Gaston out of Summit, NC. THIRTEEN of those anglers brought back five-fish limits to the scales, but when the scales closed Dominic Barretta from Clarksville, VA took the victory with 14.86 lbs. For the win Dominic took home $432 in prize money. Congratulations Dominic!
Second place was Kevin Pfautz from Barboursville, VA. Kevin had a 5 fish limit that locked in the scales at 13.57 lbs. For his efforts he took home $223 in prize money.

Big bass honors went to Tom Warner from New Bern, NC with a nice 4.62 lb fish. Because Tom was also 4th place or the 1st place out of the money he received a sample pack of Dr. Scotts Tungsten Weights provide by Scott McLamb.
