With a 91% return rate of teams from the 2017 event, it made for slim pickin’s for new teams to get in on this years event. The 100 team cap was filled quickly via a waiting list that had 28 teams on it. Incredible reception for what was a 50 team event not all that long ago, it has become the “can’t miss” event of the year in Eastern Ontario. We are humbled by the support.
Teams started to arrive at Rideau Ferry Harbour at 545 for the 8AM blastoff. They were greeted by coffee and Timbits provided by Pirate Cove Marina, thanks guys!
Blastoff went off right on time and the 100 were off.
The fishing was OUTSTANDING. Big Rideau Lake showed itself today.
Here are the hourly winners of $1200 for 1st, $600 for 2nd and $400 for 3rd.
