VIRTUAL TOURNAMENT FISHING
|Posted on July 19, 2020 at 10:30 PM|
The first ever VTF online fishing tournament concluded on July 12th, 2020 as a field of 28 competitors fished from Monday July 6th until the end of the event. Brett Scarlett from Orangevale, California finished in 5th place with a 5 fish limit of 88.75” after incurring a 0.5” penalty.
Brett Scarlett explains that he approached this event with a very specific mindset, “Target BIG bass only!” Therefore, Scarlett spent his week fishing his home body of water, the California Delta, a notorious big bass fishery. To catch big fish, Brett Scarlett used above average sized fishing lures. He fished a ½ oz Menace Baits PB&J Original Menace Jig, a 7” Pumpkin stick bait, and fished thick vegetation and cover with a topwater frog.
The VTF Summer 2020 Circuit is an engaging series of three 1-week online fishing tournaments held over the course of a three-month season. Anglers submit a limit of their longest bass and compete for big prizes while receiving points based off how they finish to compete for the coveted VTF Circuit Angler of the Season award.
