This past Sunday Kinzua Outdoors finished off a great season with a record number of teams, a nice crowd of spectators, and beautiful weather, that allowed anglers to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the turning leaves on the mountains that surround the mighty Kinzua Reservoir.

Starting off the weigh ins in a big way was the team of Al Lockwood and John Maholic. They brought in a 5 fish limit of eyes that weighed 10.71 pounds, and included the days biggest walleye of 4.05 pounds.

As the crowed finished cheering for Al and John a few more teams weighed in with smaller bags of Bass and Walleye, until the father / son team of Glenn and Mathew Bosser brought up a big bag of eyes. Anchored by a pair of 3 pounders, their 5 fish weighed in at 12.55 pounds putting them firmly in the lead on the walleye side, but they were not done yet. Holding a bag of Bass was Nicholas Bosser who brought them up to the scale. After weighing them they had another nice weight of 9.77 pounds, temporarily putting them in the lead for the Bass category as well.

Several more teams brought up smaller bags of fish until The Bass legend Jack Bell stepped to the scale. The father / son team didn't disappoint the crowd when they pulled a whopper out of their bag that tipped the scale at 3.89 pounds and was good enough for the big Bass of the day and a total weight that put them firmly in the lead of 13.81 pounds.

Setting the bar very high, we had a couple more teams that were ready to challenge the lead for the bass category.

Stepping to the scales were Harry Whitemore and Jeff Baur with a big basket of bass. While every one was wondering if they had enough to over take the Bell's, they pulled their big bass out and put it on the scale weighing 3.21 pounds, and a total weight of 13.20 pounds, just missing taking over the lead, but received a large cheer from the crowed.

After seeing that big bag of Bass father / son team of Ron Terwilliger and John David Terwilliger brought another big bag of Bass to the scale. With the crowd cheering them on John placed the big Bass on the scale. When the scale settled it weighed 3.24 pounds, and a total weight of 13.02 pounds.

Several more teams brought their fish to the scale. With the Bass side firmly wrapped up, their was still a question if any one else could top the walleye weight, or at least fight it out for second place. With the remaining teams left to weigh in, there were two that every one was still waiting to see.

Up next was Darrin Pound with legendary Bob (silver buddy)Tingley. Bob is known for bringing in the big eyes for this event every year, but this year the team had their 5 nice fish, but were missing their kicker. When the scale settled they had 10.04 pounds. On most tourney days this would be enough for the win, but today it would put them in 3rd.

With all the other teams weighed in, Jerry Kelley brought up the last limit of eyes for the day. When the scale settled the team of Tom Means and Jerry Kelly weighed 5 eyes for 9.37 pounds, also missing the nice kicker.

1. Jack Bell Sr. - Jack Bell Jr. - 5 Bass 13.81 pounds
