The first Patagonia Elite is complete. 20 teams were greeted by a very angry mother nature. Anglers face 30-40mph winds all day with a mix of rain and sunshine. It seems though the little fish were on the chow as most teams brought fish to the scale. Patrick and Marty managed to figue out how to catch some bigger fish and took home the win with a nice bag of 9.13# and the events big fish a beautiful 5.05# trout eater.  Second place was followed by Keith and Jody with 5.95#. Third was grabbed by Darick and Freddie with 5.62#

We would also like to thank Tim at ACE hardware for providing some great giveaways, raffle prizes, and trophies. Check out their new fishing department here in Tucson. Also continued thanks to Vinny’s Pizza of Sierra Vista for their support of the $500 added to the championship. If you’re in the neighborhood stop by and say hi. The food is out of this world. A special thanks to Chuy’s on Houghton road for their support. If you guys are in the neighborhood stop by and say thanks and enjoy some of their delicious food.

The final qualifying event for the 2016 Patagonia Elite series is complete. 22 boats came out for the grand finale. The event started with some crisp fall temps but quickly reminded us that we still live in the desert. The bite still seems to be getting better as every team weighed fish. The top spot was grabbed by Sam & Adrianna. They weighed a solid bag of 10.21# and also had the events second biggest fish 5.11# which happened to be Adrianna’s personal best!!! Followed closely in second place was the team of Shan and David. David fished solo while his partner nursed a sprained pinky toe. He a had a great limit of fish weighing 9.35#. Third was taken by Brandon and Eddie with 9.08# and the events biggest fish a beautiful 6.19# beast.
