CSCA March 2018 casting tournament wrpup

Posted on March 6, 2018 at 8:50 AM

 

CSCA March 2018 Tournament wrap-up

 

The 2018 casting season is under way with another good tournament in the books!! 

Charlie and I drove up on Friday. The drive north was interesting. Running 75 MPH on I40 into a 40+ mph headwind made for an interesting drive. My old beach truck thought it was running 100 plus…lol 

We got the field setup Friday. Arriving at the field on Saturday morning. It was cold and breezy. Winds were variable out of the N-NW at 15-20, gusting higher. We got started around 9:45.  

The numbers were good from the start. Angel, Mike, Goddy and I were well over 700 early on. I was sitting pretty at around 780 when Angel blasted picked up an Italian rod and blasted one out past me… BOOM. This was the motivation I needed to hit another gear and send a 125 sinker out to 799 and change…. 

The battles continued throughout the afternoon with really good numbers being hit. The most impressive cast of the weekend came late on Saturday when Ryan Lambert blasted an 8 oz sinker to 712’4” , breaking his existing record of 710’. He was using an Akios reel and a Century rod. VERY WELL DONE Ryan!!! 

On Sunday the battles continued. The wind was down slightly and seemed to have a down pushing effect but there were still some long casts hit.

Notable casts: 

Charles Probst – “C” class winner 347’4” 

Blake Huling – JR class, with an amazing cast of 706’11”. Blake is 15 years old!!! 

Shaun Smith – In just his third tournament, Shaun blasted right one out there on Sunday to 703’2” to win the “A” class and earn himself a promotion to AA! 

Ryan Lambert – Ryan won both the AA class (now promoted to Master) at 754’8” AND the 8oz category at 712’4”. 

Rolland Johnson – Rolland is our newest senior category caster and he took the class with a cast of 708’10”.

Goddy Fisherrer – Goddy did not win his class BUT he was over 725’ in two weight classes (737’2” in 100g and 739’3” in 125g) earning himself a promotion to Master Class. Dig it bro???

Mike Langston – Mike is back casting in full force. Mike won the Master class with a cast of 754’4” throwing a 150g. Well done Mike. Mike was casting an Akios 420 Tournament Prototype rod supplied my Mr. Joe Moore. Great rods, check them out guys! 

Angel V. – Angel applied and kept the pressure on me all weekend. His longest cast was 786’8”. Great casting again my friend. 

I was SOOOOO close to a personal goal of being the first American caster over the age of 55 to break the 800’ barrier. This just fuels me to get it done.  

Thanks,

2017 CSCA U.S. Primo Championship

Posted on November 21, 2017 at 12:35 AM

2017 CSCA United States Primo Championship recap

First I want to thank our sponsors;

• Kwang Wook Hyan and Zzeta – Zzetta Cage, spool, sideplates

• Angel Vilapando and Vega rods – very cool custom painted blank.

• Andrew Kumjian of Southside Custom Rods. Outstanding custom wrap on a CPS 13’ 8-12 blank.

• Carolina Cast Pro – 13’ 8-12 blank.

• James Webster – Gift certificate, lures and line.

• Dean Gibbs – OTB hand carved wooden plugs.

• Bob Anderson – ES Lures 

A special thanks to William Regula AND the Joel C Bradshaw fairgrounds for providing us a top shelf field. We cannot do what we do without a proper field. 

Your support is vital to our success. THANK YOU!! 

What a great weekend. It was fun and competitive. We had a very good turnout of 23 casters for our Championship event. It was a mix of enthusiastic young casters and crusty veteran casters. The junior division was well represented, we’ll start there… 

 

Young Abigail Haber was impressive in what I believe is her second tournament. She broke the 200 foot barrier which earned her a Ladies champion trophy and a class certificate. Well done!!

 

Blake Hulling was VERY impressive as our Junior Champ. He blasted a high swing pendulum cast out over 686 feet for the win. Great cast from a fine young man. Blake is 14 years old and will be a force for years to come.

Our Super Senior champ was Mr. John Mroczka. He and Bob Sales battled again with John coming out on top. Great casting John!! 

The 8oz win goes to my friend and longtime casting rival Angel Vilapando. It only took him a couple of throws to establish himself as the man to beat with the big sinker. Well done Angel, another well-earned win! 

I was able to take the overall win, BUT it was not easy. Angel and I went hard at it (again) for two days and I was able to inch out a win. I thoroughly enjoy these battles. Angel and I have been going at it for a very long time. I have the utmost respect for Angel as a caster, but even more so as a friend and good man.  

Mike Langston and Rolland Johnson…. . What an honor to have these two guys back on the field and hitting big numbers. Both have found their stride and are hitting big casts. Mike came on STRONG late to take the MASTER class certificate!!!

 

Now, Sir Goddy Fisherer. This guy has come onto the casting scene by storm. In the past year he has gone from a new caster to the latest member of the MASTER class. This is a man to watch, he has the drive and desire to go far in our sport. WELL DONE Mr. 740….

 

Thomas Shoaf is another new caster that made BIG strides. In his very first tournament he was hitting numbers in excess of 660 feet. Another one to watch. He may have a new nickname… something to do with plumbing work…. smile emoticon:)

 

Again, thanks to ALL who participated. The reason we do what we do is for the casters. 

Tommy
