Alfred “The Assassin” Vasquez smashes ’em at the duel in the dessert standoff in sunny Arizona where the two day showdown came down to the wire. Nice job and great comeback Alfred taming those dessert greenbacks with an impressive 27.96lb sack of lobina’s . Right behind Alfred was none other than “The Destroyer” Adam ‘D’ Day with a big ‘ol 26.92lb bag of dessert chunks. Rounding out the top three was the fish doctor Mr Randy Estrada MD who used his human anatomy skills to think like a fish bringing in 26.86lbs to the scales.
Big fish for the derby went to Dan ‘Pops’ Colgan with a friggen 5.51lb bucketmouth slob… wtg Pops!
Fishing in their last event as guest anglers are the two amigos (I can say that I’m an amigo also) David Mendez and Nelson Barrios. Both David and Nelson have participated in three consecutive meetings as well as three consecutive tournaments since showing up on the scene in San Dimas at Michael Angellos. Great job to both guest anglers at the Havasu event for showing what your made of. David brought the biggest fish to the scales on day one just like he did at the last derby at Otay, nice work David! Also joining the rank and file was guest angler Andrew Sandoval who competed at the duel in the dessert!
