OSPREY BAY OUTDOORS CONTESTANT PROFILES

image75

BRIAN "RACK EM UP" PERSHING

 Brian is new to the Fishfinder fold but has already made his mark with a strong showing winning the 1st tournament of the year! His catch of 7 sheeps and 1 mango solidified 1st place but can he keep the everchanging "CROWN OF 1ST?"

DYLAN "SILENT BUT DEADLY" GAUGHAN

image76

Dylan always finds a way to hover near the top of the water column and frequently claims the "CROWN OF 1ST" but this year new contestants may create rough seas for the determined angler!

DON "SMOKE 'EM UP"WAIBERMAN

image77

Don was consistently at the top of the heap in last year's Fishfinder tournaments but this month's sheepshead outing proved tough for Don as spotted pinfish weren't eligible for points!

DYLAN "BIDE MY TIME" DESIO

image78

There's only space for one at the very top of the Fishfinder ladder and Desio aims to be the only Dylan there! Just don't gain any weight, Dylan because that ladder is rickety as it is!

BILL "SEEK 'EM OUT" WALLACE

image79

 Bill will sneak up to 1st place when you least expect it! Under that green safari hat and impenetrable glasses lies the stern focused look of a winner! 

DAVID "DON'T TREAD ON ME" LEFEVRE

image80

Another newcomer to FF, David is already raising blood pressures! He certainly will bring on the heat if he stays with the contests!

PAUL "RED TERROR" MCWILLIAMS

image81

Paul sometimes known as Jamie and also going by Nick is no slouch when it comes to these tournaments. He consistently shows his competitive streak and may very well win it all this year! What he will win I have no idea at this moment but I'm sure it'll be something.
