Basham & Cunningham Win Top Stick Castaic

Postby John Barron » Sun Apr 17, 2011 6:45 am

The biggest concern Saturday for the Top Stick crew was the high winds at Castaic. With the field of 25 boats a little nervous about being able to launch because of the weather Lifeguard Supervisor Ralph and John Barron checked the NOAH weather report and it gave every indication the winds were going to die down. Preparation to launch moved forward and for once the weather reports were right. The wind laid down and the launch began. The day turned out to be beautiful with little to no winds which made the sight anglers very happy.

22 out of 25 boats caught limits with the team of Demonet and Lakes weighing in big fish of 5.88 but it just wasn't enough to catch Basham and Cunningham. Basham and Cunningham had second big fish weighing in at 4.56 which gave them enough of a kicker to beat out the rest of the field.

Congratulations Jim Basham and Dave Cunningham for edging out the 25 boat field Saturday at Castaic.

Great event, and Mother Nature cooperated this time. It would be nice if the state would leave the laket at this level through he summer, our newest fish need somewhere to hide so they can make it til next year. Congrats to Jim and David and the rest of the top 5.

Looking ahead to Piru already...

Congrats to Jim and Dave, you guys earned it. Congrats to Vic and Phil for increasing their AOY standings. John and Ray put on another outstanding tournament. Nice turn out, great weather (after the little scare) really good time. Thanks to all who came out.

What a great crowd of anglers. They were a lot of fun once we were told we could launch. That early wind did make me go a little nuts to be sure. Eric was great on the mic. as well. That may be his new job I think.
I will have the A.O.Y. results up today. Just doing a final check on them and they will be updated.
