What a GREAT end to the 2012 season FOM Virginia East Team Series!!
Congratulations to all of the teams who fished on Saturday! Minus the several thunder storms that moved through the area during the day, everybody hung in there and we ended up having a great tournament and an even better end of the season celebration!!
A big shout out to the top 5 teams of the tournament:
Tony and Carolyn Glassco came in 1st with 17.10lbs! They reported the key to their winning weight was running about mid-way down the James and working the tide back up. They had their limit by 7:30 that morning! The key baits used were a chatter bait and a Berkley havoc worm. They also had 1st big fish which was 5.30lbs and to top it off they clinched the title of our #1 Guy/Gal Team! Great Job Carolyn and Tony!
