Rod Brown and TJ Valle each take first place finishes at The Culmination at Cayuga

The Rochester Bassmasters finished out their Angler Of the Year series events #7 and 8 at Cayuga Lake. This is the third consecutive year that RBM has visited Cayuga. Anglers faced strong NE winds on Saturday. Despite the conditions, Rod Brown out fished the field and earned the victory, catching 22.67 pounds of Cayuga Lake largemouth. In second place was Jim Bianchi, who brought a 5 fish limit weighing in at 19.27 pounds. Rounding out the top 3 was Dave Livingston, catching 18.42 pounds.

On Sunday, and the final day of the 2018 RBM regular season, the lake afforded anglers better conditions. Much like day one, some big bags, and big fish were brought to scales. Following up a 5th place on day one, TJ Valle caught 22.47 of largemouth to claim the victory. Capping off an impressive weekend, Rod Brown’s 5 fish limit weighing 19.10 pounds was good enough for a second place finish. Finishing in 3rd place was Jim Shamp with a weight of 18.94.

Big fish honors on day one went to Dave Fenlon, with a 6.23 pounds largemouth, and Bob Manley on day two, with a 5.65 pound largemouth.

With the 2018 regular season having come to its conclusion on Cayuga Lake, Rod Brown finished atop the AOY standings the claimed the Angler Of the Year title. He finished the season with a total net weight of 130.81 pounds.

Congratulations to all anglers that fished this year, and those who qualified for the Classic. These Cayuga Lake tournament days were sponsored by Global Enviornmantal Management Systems and Paris Kirwan Insurance.
