Fishing Tournament – 2016 Edition
August 19, 2016
Club APRIL Marine (formerly the RPQ) held its annual fishing tournament this past August 14th. This year, we were honoured by the presence of Club APRIL Marine’s official spokesperson, the world-famous fishing adventurer Cyril Chauquet.
This year’s event drew some 60 boats to the Melocheville marina in Beauharnois, Quebec – along with over 250 avid anglers from across the province. Everyone was eager to out-fish the crowd while competing in a fun and friendly competition. And boy, did everyone bring their A-game, all while following good fishing practices such as catch and release.
Many of the prizes were handed out by Cyril Chauquet himself :
1st place: $500 – 4.65 lbs bass
2nd place: Econ-O-Bass pass to participate in the entire 2017 tournament season – 4.35 lb bass
3rd place: $450 – 4.19 lbs bass
4th place: $400 – 3.95 lbs bass
5th place: $300 – 3.87 lbs bass
6th place: $230 – 3.75 lbs bass
