On June 11th, student anglers competed for the 2022 Tri-State Championship Title. Quaboag Pond in Brookfield Ma is a 558 Acre body of water at the head of the Quaboag River. It is a shallow body of water with abundant vegetation and a healthy population of big largemouth bass. With temperatures in the low 70’s, mostly cloudy skies, and light winds, the teams had great fishing conditions.
Third place went to the team of Antonio Phanuef and Kyle Zaro weighing 6 largemouth for a total of 12.25 lbs. The second place team, Gavin Haynes and Timothy Russell, brought 8 largemouth to the scales for a total weight of 15.40 lbs. The 2022 Tri-State Championship Title went to the team of Jack Houghton and Charlie Hinrichs weighing in a solid 19.95 lbs of largemouth. Houghton and Hinrichs also weighed in the largest bass of the event, weighing an impressive 5.63 lbs. Houghton and Hinrichs put together the winning bag by targeting shallow water vegetation with soft plastics and frogs.
