MASSENA, N.Y. (June 21, 2017) – The Town of Massena is partnering with Cashion Fishing Rods to once again offer a great stop for anglers who want to compete for money and prizes while enjoying the best freshwater fishery in North America.
“As part of the Massena Town Council’s continuing effort to help the local economy and draw more visitors here, we are working with the fine folks at Cashion Fishing Rods to showcase what many people say is the number one place to catch trophy freshwater fish,” Massena Town Supervisor Joseph D. Gray said.
“Cashion Rods held a tournament here two years ago and have been anxious to return. I reached out to them about coming back this year, and they jumped at the chance,” he added.
Cashion Fishing Rods has expanded its 2017 Cashion Rods Tour by adding Massena to the event list. “We have a great following with the CRT Tour and added Massena to the list as one of our Bracket Bashes,” according to J.J. Elmer of Cashion Rods.
On July 8, 2017, the company will launch one of its Bracket Bash-style tournaments at the Massena Intake Boat Launch. It will be a two- angler team elimination event and cost is $210.00 per boat. Tournament entry is open to all fishing men and women.
The Northern Opens of the tour will be held at several other locations in New York State. The prizes make this tour very attractive to anglers. Projected Cash/Prizes for CRT Northern Opens (Projected Payout based on 100 boat participation) are as follows:
1st $7000 (1st Place is capped at $7000, if more than 100 boats participate, extra money & prizes will go to places from 2nd down); 2nd $1800; 3rd $1200; 4th $900; 5th $700; 6th $650; 7th $600; 8th $550; 9th $500; 10th $400; 11th-15th Choice of $350 Cash or Two Cashion Rods; 16th-20th Two Cashion Rods
