  1. N.E.W.C. 2nd Annual Mosquito Lake Spring Open Presented by Trumbull County Tourism Bureau is proud to announce the following results.

    For the second year in a row, teams pre fishing were faced with a severe cold front moving in for the event. Temps dropped over 25 degrees, and strong North winds with a mix of snow and rain were forcasted for tournament day.

    With half the expected teams backing out of this event, the teams that participated in the event were suprised to see the weather hold off for most of the day, with the winds holding off to the afternoon.

    Teams were faced with a challenging bite, but in the end the cream certainly rose to the top with 6 limits coming to the scale, along with several heavy eyes.

    Taking top honor for the event and claiming the largest payout to date, $2,500.00 for there first place finish was the team of John Stout & Sam Cappelli with an impressive limit weighing 12.55 lbs.

    Second place honors and $ 700.00 went to the team of Jim McGowan & Steve Kagorise with a limit of fish weighing 11.48 lbs.

    Third Place honors and $ 500.00 went to the team of Kieth Walters & Erick Williams with a limit of fish weighing 11.43 lbs.

    Fourth place honors and $300.00 went to the team of Chuck Sabatose & John Pendelton with 2 fish weighing 10.91 lbs.

    Fifth Place honors went to the team of Jon Siembor & Kieth Whitlatch with a limt of fish weighing 8.44 lbs.

    Top husband & wife team went to Bill & Linda Greczyn with a limit of fish weighing 8.01 lbs.

    Anglers and spectators alike were shocked at the size of some of the eyes that were brought to the scales, but no one was more suprised than the team of Stout & Cappelli, who thought they not only won the event, but also caught the largest fish for the event weighing 5.24 lbs.

    Everything looked good till the second from last team brought in thier fish and silenced the crowed as they tried to lift the monster out of the bag.

    Taking big fish honors and $ 270.00 for the event was the team of Chuck Sabatose & John Pendelton with an 8 lb Mosquito monster.

    Several presentations were used during the event, but trolling a Reef Runner Lure proved to be the key for landing the big fish.

    Overall the event was a big hit, even with the forcasted storms teams travelled up to 7 hours from New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio to compete.

    The next event will be held on June 1st on the Kinzua Reservoir.
