2017 BOATER PAIRING PROCESS - A random drawing at the beginning of the season determines the original order of whom will be paired and unpaired for a given tournament. This order will change throughout the season for those boaters who miss a tournament. It will remain the same for those who attend. See this spreadsheet for a further explanation and to view who has been or will be unpaired.

CT River 2 (Haddam) - 8.26.17 - 7:00am - 3:00pm
SUMMARY: Congrats to Mike B Jr with his first Sweetwater victory! He took first place with 8.95 lbs. Adrian was a close second with 8.47lbs, while Dave took 3rd with 8.01. Nick grabbed lunker with a 3.94 largemouth.
Candlewood Lake 2 - Lattins - 9.16.17 - 8am - 4pm
SUMMARY: Mike I had an impressive bag of 18.27lbs for the win, all without the use of his trolling motor! Dave grabbed second place with 15.62 lbs of smallies. He snatched lunker by .05 ounces with his 4.06 smallie. Rounding out third was Ernie with a 9.30 lb mixed bag. Dave has a 28 point lead in AOY over Mike I going into the last tournament; counting by 5's, that's only a 6-place differential. Team points might be a big factor at Lilly. Anything can happen!

SUMMARY: Mike I makes it back-to-back tourney wins and back-to-back AOY titles. Congratulations! 10.16 lbs gave him an easy victory over Ernie in second place with 6.33 lbs. Nick finished an impressive season from the back of the boat with 3rd place and lunker. See the Final Standings 2017 button at the top to see a wrap up of the Sweetwater 2017 season.
