RESULTS FROM QUINTE FISHING SERIES

FALL COMBO - SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 1, 2000

The Fall Combo, the last tournament of the season for the Quinte Fishing Series and only two (2) day tournament 
of the "series", got underway from the
George Street ramps at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 30th.

A clear morning with relatively calm waters welcomed the anglers day one as 23 boats/teams left at the 7:00 a.m. 
starting time. Teams were hoping to
catch a five (5) fish limit of bass and/or walleye or any combination of the
 two species.

The 4:00 p.m. check-in time saw a number of teams weighing in some great weights but very few walleyes were
 included in these limits. With 21.81 lbs.
, including big bass of the day, a 4.52 lb. largemouth, Chris Sherman and
 Dave Henderson took the day one lead. In second place with 18.88 lbs. were
Andy and Darcy Asselstine with a 
nice walleye of 8.91 lbs. included in that weight, and rounding out the top three after day one were Jeff Toppings
 and
Larry Pringle with 18.65 lbs.

Leaving at 7:00 a.m. day two, the teams left with calm winds and water but with the temperature a few degrees 
warmer they also experienced
areas of early morning fog.

At the 3:00 p.m. weigh-in time, by weighing in a nice walleye of over 8.00 lbs., the defending tournament champions 
Chris Sherman from Corbyvill
e and Belleville's Dave Henderson took the title and the $1,800.00 pay cheque. With
 their 4.52 lb. largemouth they weighed in on day one, they also
took Big Fish - Bass title for the weekend and that 
netted them an additional $250.00 plus trophy compliments of Waterbouys Bar and Grill, Belleville.

They also received two fleece jackets compliments of Mark's Work Wearhouse and from Kelsey's, Belleville-
Trenton, a $50.00 gift certificate.

Second place went to Picton's Jeff Toppings and partner Larry Pringle of Napanee with a total weight of 33.05 lbs. 
earning them $900.00 and third

place for the weekend went to Brian Hadley from Frankford and Belleville's Terry Langstaff with 30.49 lbs. earning 
them $600.00.

In fourth place with 29.35 lbs. over two days were Rick Marshall and Mike Lukashal and they took home $250.00. 
Although they only weighed in

one fish on Sunday, Tom and Joe Gustar made it count by taking the Big Fish - Walleye title with a 9.40 lb. walleye 
and winning $250.00 plus trophy
compliments of the Quinte Fishing Series.

This year's "Angler/Team of the Year" race was very close and going into the last tournament, five (5) teams had a 
legitimate shot at this title.

Day one saw two of the teams vying for this title slip down the leader board, and by winning the Combo tournament, 
Chris Sherman and Dave
Henderson wrapped up their second consecutive Team of the Year championship, and 
with that a prize package of a 15' Yukon Princecraft boat,
15 H.P. Mercury outboard and galvanized trailer.

A number of draw prizes were awarded including a 14' Lund boat, Minn Kota trolling motor, Gift Certificates from 
Lobster Trap and hour Air
Flight, Berkley Power Baits and Rods and Reels.
