The 3 Peat is Complete!!!!

Posted: March 8, 2016 in General Info

The Third Patagonia Elite is complete. We had another strong showing of 24 boats come out to chase the little green bass. The weather had been setting up perfect for some great prespawn possibly spawn action. Water temps in the mid to upper 50’s. The fish definitely had the spawn on their mind as many anglers reported seeing some big females cruising in the shallows. The team of Chris & Luis continued their roll completing the 3 peat! They brought another solid bag to the scales weighing 9.70# with a 4.11# big fish. Followed closely in second place by the team of Steven & John. The pulled 7.39# of fish from what turned out to be a very stingy Patagonia lake. Third was grabbed by the familiar team of Patrick & Marty. The weighed 7.28# and had the events second big fish weighing 5.41#. Big fish of the event honors went to the team of Jacob & Richard. They brought in a beautiful tank that weighed 6.58# Thanks again to all the teams that participated. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next event April 9th.
