Team Ontario has wrapped up a fine performance at the 2022 TNT B.A.S.S. Nation Northeast Regional on the St. Lawrence River out of Waddington, New York over the past three days with some notable finishes, Thanks to all for a fine effort!

Tracey Rich, Congratulations for finishing in First Place overall on the non boater side. As taken from the B.A.S.S. Nation posting;
Tracy Rich of North Bay, Ontario, won the nonboater division with 36-12. Making his first trip to the St. Lawrence, Rich weighed daily limits of 12-12, 10-8 and 13-8 and earned the top prize of $2,750. Rich caught his fish on a mix of drop shots with 2.8 Keitech Swing Impact Fat, swimbaits, spy baits, a 4-inch YUM Dinger on a light ball head jig and a Ned. “The first two days, I fished my baits really slow because we were fishing deeper water,” Rich said. “Today, I had to cast to the bed and let it sit there.”

Danny McGarry gave winner Timothy Dube no easy win coming in a very respectable Second Place just under two pounds from first. Danny saying on the B.A.S.S. Nation posting
Representing the Ontario team, McGarry spent all three days at the tournament’s western boundary where Lake Ontario meets the St. Lawrence River. Relying on his knowledge of this area, he turned in daily bags of 21-0, 20-6 and 19-6 to tally 60-12. “I put probably 300 to 400 miles on my Mercury the past three days,” McGarry said. “I caught a lot of bedding fish and it was a good week. “I caught my fish in 8 to 12 feet on sparse rock. It’s not everywhere, but when you do find it, they’re usually in it this time of year.” McGarry caught his fish by drop shotting an XZone Finesse Slammer and a Ned rig with a Z-Man Finesse T.R.D. The drop shot produced the majority of his weight. “I had to work on all of my fish for about 15 minutes each today,” McGarry said. “They were being tricky and I had to keep switching up baits.”

Both Danny and Tracey will be moving on to reprsent TEAM ONTARIO at the B.A.S.S. Nation Nationals at Pickwick Lake, Florence, Alabama to be held from November 09th to 11th, 2022.
