Giannini wins co-angler title

Robert Giannini of Rochester, Massachusets, won the co-angler division and a Ranger Z117 with an Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 43-15 pounds, 15 ounces.

Gary Walker caught the biggest bass of the tournament in the co-angler division Thursday – a 5-pound, 5-ounce bass – that earned him the day’s EverStart Series Big Bass award of $166.

The EverStart Series consists of five divisions – Central, Northern, Southeast, Texas and Western. Each division consists of four tournaments and competitors will be vying for valuable points in each division that could earn them the Strike King Angler of the Year title, which allows them to fish the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup.

The next EverStart Series Northern Division tournament will be Sept. 12-Sept. 14 at the Chesapeake Bay in North East, Md., and is hosted by the Cecil County Tourism Office.
