Whitesboro Man Wins Northeast Fishing Tournament
Frank Guarascio of Whitesboro had quite the weekend fishing trip. Frank won the Walmart Bass Fishing League Northeast Division event at Thousand Islands. He reeled in 5 fish, totaling 23 pounds 3 ounces to take home the trophy and nice paycheck of $2,985.00. Hit read more to get some of Frank’s secrets.
Guarascio fished isolated boulders and pea-gravel runs along the flats in 12- to 15-feet of water using a 3½-inch Strike King Coffee Tube. “The majority of my fish came on the Coffee Tube, but I got the big 5-pound, 2-ounce smallie by drop-shotting,” Guarascio said. “The fish were not grouped up like they are traditionally at this time of year up here,” Guarascio went on to say. “I had to hit a lot of waypoints. I would pull up, catch one or two, and then move on. I had around 20 different waypoints that I was checking.
Two other CNY men finished in the top 10 in the “non-pro” division. William Maynard of Whitesboro finished 4th and Matthew Hedges of Rome finished 6th.
