Jim and Jack Morrey winners of the Mass BASS team championship

Resized_20160716_133232

Jack Morrey with 4.25 big fish

This year’s Mass BASS Nation team championship took place at the Agawam river because of low water at the scheduled Connecticut river.
3 teams competed on a hot humid day, this bite wasn’t the normal Agawam bite because of a recent week kill.
Again Jim and Jack fished hard and rose to the top
Great job this year guys and good like at the national championship at Kentucky lake this fall .
Agawam results

1st   Jim and Jack with      12.75
2nd Chip and Tab with       7.80
3rd  Matty and Ben with     3.85
