Ottawa, Canada – Halo Fishing has been well represented during the 2018 Renegade Bass Tour season. The Eastern Ontario based, team bass fishing tournament circuit features the best anglers in Canada on a series including four qualifying events and a two-day Classic. Halo had good representation with two boats finishing in the top 12 this season after the four qualifiers among a 76-team field. Both teams have qualified to fish the two-day Classic event September 8-9 on the St. Lawrence River for their chance at over $100,000 in cash & prizes. Matt Massey and Travis Raison finished 6th with a combined weight of 70.63 pounds over the course of the four qualifiers. Robert Greenberg and Chris Lawson wrapped up their season in 12th place with 67.08 pounds over their four events.
With the bigger field of teams this year, it made for a tough season to crack the top-40 and make the Classic. “Trying to stay consistent, day in, day out on the drastically different bodies of water that Ontario has to offer is challenging enough, but when you mix in 76 teams of Canada’s greatest bass anglers, the challenge is undeniable!” Said Raison.
Massey and Raison attribute much of their season’s success to their consistency and ability to adapt to the different situations throughout the year. “From drop shotting smallmouth in 50 feet of water to punching mats for largemouth in 12 inches of water, it truly takes adaptability, attention to the detail and time on the water to succeed,” said Raison. “Fishing with Halo fishing rods definitely gives us an advantage no matter what conditions we need to adapt to and helped Matt and me to secure a 6th place finish for Team of the Year and gain a berth in the Renegade Bass Tour Championship in a few weeks!”
The next chapter of the season for these two Halo Fishing teams will be the Renegade Bass Tour 2018 Championship which will take place September 8-9 in the town of Morrisburg, Ontario.
