The first 2-Day NBSFA tournament of the 2021 season is now complete and Joe Lokietek and Mike Peruschek are your winners in the Town of Nackawic sponsored event.
The weather was kind, but the black flies were not on day 1. Lokietek and Peruschek were able to chase down 16.25 lbs to jump out to the lead. Macallister and Simard brought in the biggest fish for day 1 weighing 4.15 lbs.
On day 2, the morning weather was calm and serene but the black flies were ready to rumble. The teams headed to their spots in calm water and little wind to try and improve on their day 1 totals. By mid day, the wind and rain had moved in. Wind gusts of 45 km/h and sheets of rain pelted the competitors and bilge pumps were in high gear.
In the end, Joe and Mike were able to table a bag of 15.10 lbs and a 2-day total 0f 31.35 lbs to secure the win and take home the championship. Ray McFarlane and Jeff Louvelle brought in a 2 day total of 30.20 in 2nd place with Aaron Hood and Brandon Jones rounding out the top 3 with 30.10 lbs. The biggest fish of day 2 was caught by Edmond and Rickett, weighing in at 4.20 lbs.
