The Trophy Bassmasters left the big productive waters up north at Lake Erie for a two tournament run through the center of Ohio starting with Delaware reservoir near Delaware Ohio recently.
Inland lakes like Delaware provide a much more difficult task for the club members when it comes to finding not only numbers of fish but also keeper size bass measuring at least 12 inches. When the 14 anglers finished their 8 hour competition day on Delaware all but one had at least one fish, but only two anglers had a five fish limit.
The club brought in 43 largemouth bass that weighed a total of just 45.69 pounds. Boyd Downey once again was at the top of the heap as he had 6.92 pounds in five fish.
Guy Gerber used the day’s big bass at 1.88 pounds and a 5.22 pound total in four fish to narrowly capture secondnd place.
In third place was Don Kraft, who netted five fish weighing 5.21 pounds.
With Delaware serving as the club’s 10th outing of the season, the members start throwing out their lowest scores to compile only their best nine tournament totals. This really starts tightening up the point list as those anglers that have missed an event or two get to catch up.
Downey has made a substantial move in the point standings with wins in the past two events moving from ninth to second.

Don Ratcliff 222, 4. Bert Grubbs Jr. 206, 5. Virgil Grant 201, 6. Guy Gerber 200, 7. Kelly Dearwester 193, 8. Bob Flowers 191, 9. Don Kraft 190, 10. Andy Cripple 188.
