A rainy day on Kentucky waters saw 127 teams battle it out on day two of the 2013 NBAA National Championship in Gilbertsville, Ky. Today’s weigh in was marked the Black Division Championship day where black division qualifiers compete for the top fifty spots to advance to Saturday’s Ultimate Championship finals. Stuart Cavner and Andy Scheuller led it today with 21 lbs 4 ounces.
Tomorrow, the top fifty teams from both Blue and Black Championship days will meet to decide this year’s NBAA National Champions on Kentucky Lake.
“We’ve fished three national championships and came up short in second; this is our division win,” Cavner and Scheuller said. “We’re definitely glad to finally take the title, and we hope that’s also the case tomorrow.”
Coming in second, were Karl Kearcher and Carlos Vergara with a respectable 19lbs 2ounces. The team will be among the fifty to advance to the Ultimate Championship finals tomorrow.
Each championship day qualifies a maximum of 50 boats plus a wild card to advance. However, some boats will qualify on both days, which will reduce the final count.
The 2013 NBAA National Championship will award cash and prizes totaling over $70,000 this week on Kentucky Lake in Gilbertsville, Ky. The NBAA National Champions will receive a new Ranger 178 Aluminum boat with a 60HP Evinrude E-tec outboard and $3,000 in cash. The second place finishers will also receive a new Ranger 178 Aluminum boat with a 60HP Evinrude E-tec outboard and $2,000 in cash.
Today, NBAA competitors weighed in 1,245lbs of bass with a 100% release rate. Seventy-five total limits were brought in on another solid day of fishing on Kentucky Lake.
