The 2013 Big Mac tournament was held over Father’s Day Weekend and for as long as I can remember the weather cooperated. The NWA had a 28 boat field both days and launched out of Admiral’s Cove. The rule’s meeting was held at 6 p.m. at the Sand’s Bar and Grill on Friday night.
Day 1, saw for a very slow bite for most, a lot of teams were coming in with 1 and 2 fish. The team of Rossencutter/Rosencutter came in with a very nice 5 fish basket of 17.9 lbs. and their big fish weighed in at a whopping 11.27 lbs. Rounding out the top 4 were the teams of Brandon/Conroy, Johnson/Hiilard, and Steinke/Steinke. The TWF side-pot winner for day 1 was Oliver/Schroeder, with this win the team wins an automatic paid entry into the 2014 NTC, a gas stipend and other contingencies.
Day 2, saw more fish but lower weights. The team of Canning/Canning brought in a 5 fish limit that tipped the scales at 13.06 lbs. Rounding out the top 4 were the teams of Ericson/Ericson, Rosencutter/Rosencutter and Hesse/Hankla. The TWF side-pot winner for day 2 was the brother team of Starostka/Starostka. Congratulations to all the teams that were in the monies.
