RI CAGers Finish 1st, 3rd and 6th in National Big 4 Tournament

Brandon Dee....3rd place 
The results for the CAG National Big 4 Tournament are now official, and once again, RI CAG members scored impressive results. Jake Ayotte, winner of the fall Big 4, came in first place, Brandon Dee came in third place and I placed sixth.  The whole idea with the Big 4 is to log in your 4 biggest carp in a six week period.  The total score becomes your points.  This year there were over 50 carp fishermen around the country who signed up for this event and the competition was very tough.
Dave Pickering......6th place
Jake's first place total was 162 lbs., 9 oz. He also had the biggest mirror at 48 lbs., 4 oz. For his first place finish Jake won $225 in gift certificates and prizes.
Brandon's total was 129 lbs., 3 oz.  For his third place finish he wins $100 in gift certificates.
Jake Ayotte....1st place
My total was 108 lbs., 4 oz.  I won $40 in gift certificates.
Before this tournament began my goal was to get to 100 points and finish in the top 10.  Both those goals were reached. I will say this was a tough event this year.  The competition was stiff, and you needed well over 90 points just to make it in the top 10.  The weather was also not cooperative as a lot of the waters were high and unfishable due to rain.  Still, there were some impressive catches made as evidenced by Jake and Brandon's success.
