Yesterday we held our first charity kayak fishing tournament, benefiting the Tunkhannock River Day. There were 18 entrants and a handful of family and friends. The river was up a couple feet from its normal level this time of year, and was still a bit stained, but the conditions were still conducive to kayak fishing in this stretch of the North Branch of the Susquehanna River. A good number of fish were landed, with PKFA/Suskie Bassmasters member Frank Patla leading the way into 1st place.
1st Place: Frank Patla, 15 5/8″
2nd Place: Frank Kratz, 15 1/4″
3rd Place: Allen Davailus, 14 3/4″
