RTF Major League Fishing “Casitas Cup” 10/28/2017 Results

RTF Major League Fishing "Casitas Cup" 10/28/2017

 

The top three in the first ever major-league fishing event ever held at Lake Casitas. To the left is 2017 Eric Elshere Memorial cup champion Ken Vanderburg as he led most of the day but settled in at third place catching 8 keeper bass and a fantastic third-place finish. To the right is deepwater superstar Cody Kurz as he took the lead around lunchtime when he ran into a large school of deep water fish on a jigging spoon and looked like he had victory in hand. Cody fished like an absolute warrior and congratulations on the second place finish. In the middle is 2017 RTF Casitas Cup champion Fred Klinshaw! Around 1:30 in the afternoon made the crucial decision to pick up a buzzbait in less than 1 foot of water and caught three quality bass in the 2 to 4 pound range on consecutive casts! Then with just five minutes left in the event Fred caught his final keeper a 1.9 pound bass that pushed him past Cody Kurz for the victory in the last few minutes of this event. I have run tournaments at Lake Casitas now for eight years and I have never been involved in anything so exciting. The ability for the anglers to catch as many fish as they can and come back from any deficit no matter how far makes this an experience that just cannot be duplicated. I’m still excited about it as I speak this morning and I want to thank all of my true soldiers that showed up and were willing to try something new and expand our horizons at RTF. Thanks to each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart and I really look forward to our second event in spring of 2018.

RTF “Casitas Cup” 10/28/2017 Details

One of the most anticipated events of the year is set for October 28, 2017. This will be the first ever major league style fishing tournament in the history of contest fishing at Lake Casitas. Everyone is welcome whether you have a boat or not. All anglers must bring their smart phone. We will register you in the morning with ScoreTracker Live. Entry fee is $150 per person. As always please bring cash. Sign up will be inside the Marina Café from 5 AM to 6 AM. After everyone is registered we will have a draw for partners. Boaters will be paired with non-boaters. Each boat will receive a Brecknell scale with a Fish Grip Junior pre-rigged and ready to go. We will then proceed to the coyote launch ramp and take off will be 7 AM. Weigh-in will be 3 PM. This is not a team tournament. You will catch your own fish and net your own fish. Once an angler catches a fish your partner in the boat will be responsible for weighing that fish with both parties agreeing on the weight. Size limit is 13 inches mouth closed on a flat board and you can catch as many fish as you want. There will be cash and trophies to the top five finishers. The winner of the event will receive the first ever “Casitas Cup” which is a beautiful crystal cup trophy. Anglers would like more information can call or text me at 818-439-1154 or email me at Rich tauber@gmail.com

RTF Tour 6/3/2017 “Casitas Nights” Largest Bass

I have been running tournaments at Lake Casitas for seven years and this is the largest bass we’ve ever had weighed in at one of our tournaments. Larry Elshere is all smiles with his 9.36 pound Lake Casitas largemouth bass. Larry and his good friend Doug Hansen celebrated the victory with a whopping 24.17 pound bag of bass and oh by the way collected a smooth $2,600.00 in cash!
