Even though this year’s tournament was earlier than all but two of our past EBOs, 28 teams came out to play. it was our best turnout yet and a great showing for a March event, especially with the cold, windy start to the day.

Only 6 limits and 51 total fish were weighed (translation: it was a long fishless day for many!) but the cold 44 degree Harwich water gave up some nice ones as usual. The lunker largemouth went to the team of Christian Hogue and Marc Chavin who weighed a 2.97 lb. fish. The big smallie award went to the team of Dan Tavilla and Chris Apolita with a 4.82 lb. brown fish.

With so many entrants we were able to pay down four places. Picking up the first payout in fourth place were Steven Carden and Anthony Carden, who weighed a smallmouth limit of 12.10 lbs. In addition to the cash award third place paid out in chocolate too, in the form of the smallest of our chocolate Easter bunnies. Those goodies were hard earned by Christian Hogue and Marc Chavin with a mixed limit weighing 12.51 lbs. The team of George Smith & Andrew Demarco captured second place and an even bigger bunny. Their smallmouth limit came in at 12.85 lbs. And, topping them all, Mike Calpaldi and Mike Wolfenden earned top prize money and the mother of all bunnies with a limit of brown fish totaling 14.39 lbs. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all who participated for your continued support of Avid!
