Sunday October 22, 2017 marked the XX annual Conroy Oakley Pro Teen Classic. This year we dedicated the event in honor and rememberance of Andy "Cooch" Cuccia. Cooch's vision for this event has always been about bringing the community together and introducing teenagers to the excitement and brotherhood of bass fishing.
This year was no different we launched 63 boats with teens and bass pro's out of Russo's Marine on what turned out to be a beautiful day, that I will never forget, and a Delta grind. By the laughter and grins at the weigh in and raffle you could see at the end of the day that everyone had a great time and good ole Cooch was grinnin down at us knowing that his vision would live on.
This years Pro-Teen Classic was won by Bradley Cammisa (14) and his pro Mike Birch, each brought a solid fish the scales and sealed the Victory with 13.72. Second Place went to Austin Silva (14) and Brittyn Wiggins with the big fish of the day 5.17, with a total weight of 12.47 AND they caught a tagged stripper earning them a cool 100 bucks. Teen Big Fish honors went to Joshua Fairchild(16) going 3.80 (4 lber on Cooch's Scale) Overall it was a great day in remembrance of our friend and brother Cooch - We hope to see you all there in 2018!
Special thanks to Nick Smith for stepping into the role of MC, you did Cooch proud. Hook Line and Sinker for holding up the flame, literally taken care of the food and grillin it up for us. The Hook Line and Sinker's Steve Moduno for being the weigh master, Ronnie VonAirsdale for being the point person making sure everyone was paired up, and the COUNTLESS volunteers who stepped up to make this event the success it was, there are just too many to mention in this thread.
