RI CAG Big 3 Tournament Winners

Tom Perron,
gold medal
Josh Sanville, silver medal.
Our RI CAG Spring Big 3 Tournament has been running for the last three months. Our guys and gals have been catching and releasing some big carp here in RI.  The idea was to enter your biggest carp by weight for April, May and June.  Add up all the weights and that becomes your point total. The fish had to be caught and released in RI waters. The national CAG group has provided engraved medals for the top three finishers.
Here are the three winners along with their point totals (weights of fish landed):

1st- Tom Perron- 21/8. 30/8, 22/4 = 74 lbs., 4 oz
2nd- Josh Sanville- 23/2, 25/2, 18/5 = 66 lbs., 9 oz.
3rd- Ryan Bunker- 19/11, 22/10, 22/2 = 64 lbs., 7 oz.

Ryan Bunker,
bronze medal
Tom Perron, who came in first last year, has won it again, taking another gold medal. Tom is one of  our best big fish hunters here in RI and posted the only 30 lb. fish landed this year in the tournament. That 30 lb. 8 oz. carp was a PB for Tom.  He also beat his last year's total by about 5 lbs. To average almost 25 lbs. a fish as Tom did is quite a feat here in RI.
Josh Sanville, the silver medal winner, is one of our new guys here in RI, but he sure knows how to fish.  He was the early leader in the tournament as he had the biggest April fish. He averaged over 22 lbs. a fish, real good results here in RI.  He will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.
Ryan Bunker, who won the bronze medal, came on strong in June with a 22 lb. fish that moved him from 5th to 3rd place.  Ryan is a long time CAG member and one of the most experienced carp fishermen in this state. Ryan averaged over 21 lbs. a fish in the tournament.
Congrats to these three guys and all who entered the tournament this year.
