Cominsky, Canon Capture WMT Finale
Conneaut, OH-August 12th 2017-Waleye Madness held its series finale on what would be a breezy day on Lake Erie. Teams launched boats at the Conneaut Port Authority Ramp set to find 5 fish to bring to the scales.
Hard work prevailed as the team of Chase Cominsky and Lee Canon captured 1st place. Their Mercury equipped boat had them making a big run to Geneva. The big run didn’t pan out as planned as they found out quick the fish would just not bite. The fish were negative and they needed to make the choice quick. They reeled in their rods and headed back east to Ashtabula where they were able to locate active fish. “We got double right away” said Cominsky. They were able to stay on the active pod of fish, bringing 5 fish that weighed 34.05#. “Pulling deep bayrats on wire caught most of our fish” Canon explained. The team also was the highest finishing Mecury boat good for $200 totaling a payday of $2750.
Second place honors went to Emil Banar and Tim Heslop with a bag of 33.47#. They made a big run to the 14 line to get there 5 fish. Hendricks and Ulmer took 3rd place with a 31.62# bag anchored by the Buckeye Sports Center Big Fish of the day. The fish weighed in at 9.79lbs good for $200. The team ran bandits with weight added to get to the depths they needed to. The team of Leigh and Doughty received 4th place honors with a 24.74# bag. Rounding out the top 5 was Dean and Metzger. Lund Contingency honors went to Lint and Clayton. Lund Boats offers $300 to the highest finishing Lund Boat.
