Ashtabula ARU Open #5 ~ 7.24.21 ~ 2021 LEWT/BWWC Tournament Results
The record has been set!
Well the record has been set! The Vic’s Sports Center LEWT Open hosted by ARU Marina & Campgrounds in Ashtabula sent off a record number 67 teams the morning of July 24, 2021.
On the LEWT side of things Tyler Berthold continues his hot streak and pulls off another win, pulling nearly 28# of hard-earned Lake Erie gold!
Tyler also won the Side Pot sponsored by Jeremy Lisy (while he was on vacation). Tyler bit into the lead of Ryan Yonkers and Cole Carlson in the TOY Race with their second LEWT victory of the year!
LEWT anglers Charles Wagner and wife Laurie secured second place with 26.18# which was anchored by a 10.91# true Lake Erie dinosaur. They also won Big Fish and Second Place Side Pot.
David Kraut and Sam Downing played their cards right in our first event out to the east, catching 25.49# and good enough for 3rd place. Kraut and Downing are now second in the LEWT TOY race and gaining momentum for the end of the year.
Mike Miller and partner/sub/LEWT Sponsor Chris Hoopes locked in 4th place in both LEWT and OPEN Divisions with 24.87#. Miller was due and has now hopefully found his stride heading into the wheelhouse eastern events.
Steve Hendricks and Brian Ulmer brought home another top five finish with 24.40# that lands them securely in 3rd place for the LEWT TOY standings. Steve and Brian have quietly stayed consistent this season and look to make a race at that TOY Ohio State Championship.
Last team cashing a check in the LEWT division was Don Lint and Frank Broskey weighing in 24.31#.
Open Division: Team Johnny Kurtz took the day with 29.06#.
