The Trivers ABC Tournament was challenging but fun. I didnt win, but Im happy with 3rd Place. Conditions were wonderful out of the water, sunny and warm after a 30 degree start. Unfortunately, under the water conditions werent so good, with muddy, icy meltwater running down both rivers into our Tournament area in the Harbor. I caught my first and last fish on K-1 Baits Squid & Octopus Pink Popup Berg Zigs, with the other two falling for a White Tiger and Panther Feeder respectively, with finesse rigs and K-1 Baits Pineapple STB corn. Here are a few pics of a fun day at this Biggest 3 Carp Tournament. Congratulations to Nick Schaus, 2018 Trivers ABC Champion, and Bogdan Bucur (Team USA Coach & Angler), in 2nd. #StCroixRods #AvidCarpSeries #ACS120MHMF2 #ACS120HMF2 #BestRodsOnEarth

Hard to believe, but next Sunday I will be fishing my first tournament since being diagnosed with Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL).In the very unlikely event that I win any prize money, I pledge 50% to Team USA Carp Squad (the Trivers ABC is a Fundraiser for the US Team), and 50% to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.Heres the link, if anyone else would like to donate to that good cause? Thanks! https://donate.lls.org/lls/donate#StCroixRods #AvidCarpSeries #ACS120MHMF2 #TeamUSACarpSquad#LLS.org
