The Rochester Bassmasters Angler Of the Year race continued on July 28th on Conesus Lake, which hasn’t played host to an RBM event since 2017. This venue proved to be tough this time around for the anglers, only 12 limits were brought to the scales, from a 39 angler field.
The top three finishes for this event are no strangers to the top of the board. Gathering enough weight to claim the 3rd place spot was Jim Bianchi. Jim put together a 5 fish limit to the scales that weighed 14.69. In the second place was TJ Valle. TJ caught 5 Conesus Lake largemouth bass to amass an overall weight of 15.07 pounds to take 2nd place. Taking the top spot, and bringing in the heaviest bag of fish on the day was Dave Livingston. Dave put in the practice time to cover the entire lake, and it paid off as he was able to catch 17.13 pounds of largemouth. Included in his 5 fish limit, was also the days biggest fish, which tipped the scales at 5.05 pounds.
Congratulations to Tige Noni and the rest of the tournament committee for another smooth, and successful tournament day as we make our way through the 2019 season.
