Next Level Bass Fishing


Fishing during a year of change is hard for everyone, and that includes changes to the TBF National formatting.  Changes could have been a contributing factor to the limited participation across the New England area and namely Rhode Island hard.  However, even with the changes in our system involvement of anglers during the year was still impressive and winning the State Championship was as important as it has ever been. 
     Leo Joachim fished each of the scheduled 5 events.  Finishing with 2 2nd Places and three 3rd place finishes helped Leo enjoy his 1st State Championship.  Congrats Brother, Great Year.Type your paragraph here.
