Default $4,000 to WON BASS Casitas TOC Champions 6/8

It was standing room only as 21 teams crowded into the Marina Café on Saturday morning June 8, 2013 to compete in the first ever Tournament of Champions at Lake Casitas in Ventura California. Rather than uncabling their boat and traveling to faraway destinations to fish the Tournament of Champions the anglers in the WON BASS "Casitas Region" were pumped up as they were able to compete in their year end fish-off on their home Lake. WON BASS set an all-time record for attendance in this region fishing 121 teams during the 2013 "Casitas Region" season. With $1700 in cash resting in the tournament of champions money pool anglers knew that this would be the largest tournament payout at Lake Casitas in many years. And payout it did, as the team of Larry Elshere and Eric Elshere put together a five bass limit weighing 19.85 pounds and collected a mind blowing $4,000 in cash in a bass tournament with 21 teams. Not only did Larry and Eric win the bass tournament they also secured the 2013 Angler of the Year title. Eric explained to the crowd that the key moment of the day was drifting over a 6 pound bass in a shallow bay under greasy calm conditions first thing in the morning. Larry and Eric went to work sight fishing that 6 pound bass for over an hour but persistence paid off and that wound up being the key fish that put them over the top on Saturday. The team of Chris Chandler and his brother Joe Chandler put together a wonderful 18.59 pound sack of bass but had to settle for second place in this first of its kind event. Joe and Chris took home $770 in cash for their efforts and Chris shared a special experience with his brother as Joe had not been bass fishing in nearly 5 years. It was no surprise when the team of Brian Evans and Matt Newman dropped 17.11 pounds of bass on the scales and slid into third place in this year's title tournament. While wearing a cast on his arm from a recent bike accident Matt Newman told the crowd that a small thing like a cast was not about to keep him away from this tournament. Brian and Matt went to work with a jerk bait catching over a dozen bass and collecting $480 in cash for their third place finish. This officially wraps up the 2013 WON BASS "Casitas Region" tour. The next event on the WON BASS "Casitas Region" tour will be the season opener in January of 2014. Complete results can be found below and at http://www.wonbass.com
