Nice showing by Roanoke Valley bass anglers this past weekend.
As I wrote in my column in today’s Roanoke Times, Josh DeMaury of Troutville won the co-angler division of the Everstart Northern Series event on the Potomac River. This kicker fish — it’s around 6 pounds, but FLW doesn’t weigh for big fish on the final day so the exact weight is unknown — helped push him over the top.
Meanwhile Salem pro John Crews had a wire-to-wire third place finish on the Bassmaster Elite Series stop on the upper Mississippi River.
Congrats to these guys for their big finishes, and good luck to the rest of you heading out this evening for the night tournaments at Claytor Lake at Rockhouse Marina and Smith Mountain Lake at Captain’s Quarters Marina.
