Accent Team member, Ryan Latinville, and his tournament partner, Casey Casamento, had one of those days on the water that every bass angler dreams about. What made the day even sweeter was that it was also tournament day for the duo. Latinville and Casamento participated in the NYTBF (New York Bass Federation) Clayton Lions Club tournament on the St. Lawrence River. Ryan and Casey were also defending champions of this event from 2015. Needless to say, they defended their title well and took home the hardware again this year.
Ryan and Casey caught a five bass limit weighing in at 26.55 pounds. Not to mention that all of their fish that they weighed in were SMALLMOUTH!!!
They beat out 40 other teams that were looking to take home the title, as well as, the nice $1,000 dollar payday that went along with it.
"HOW THEY CAUGHT THEM"
Ryan and Casey caught their mega stringer of smallmouth on a Keitech 3.8" swimbait paired with a 1/2 and 3/4 ounce Accent Fishing"Scooter Head."Slow rolling the swimbait along the bottom in 15-20 foot of water was key to catching the bigger fish. Also the free swinging action of the "Scooter Head"gave the swimbait an action that those big brown fish just couldn't resist. Ryan also explained that a couple of their fish came on a"Scooter Jig"in Green Pumpkin color (also 1/2 & 3/4 ounce). The"Scooter Jig"picked off the less aggressive fish that didn't want to chase the swimbait.
A big congratulations goes out to both Ryan and Casey on their victory against a very competitive field of
anglers. Not too many people can say that they have caught a 20+ pound bag of smallmouth bass, not
to mention during a tournament too! That just goes to show that it really does pay to FISH ACCENT!!!
