Avena tops EverStart event on Champlain

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. - Adrian Avena of Vineland, N.J., weighed a
five-bass limit totaling 20 pounds, 3 ounces Saturday to win the EverStart
Series Northern Division event on Lake Champlain with a three-day total of 15
bass weighing 58 pounds. For his victory, Avena earned $29,153.

"I had a great day," said the twenty-year old Avena. "I made a lot of good
decisions and things worked out for me. Someone told me that when you are in the
zone you are in the zone. Today and on day one I was in the zone. I slacked a
little on day two, but it all worked out, I am so blessed. My hands are so
beat-up I can hardly lift my fish.

"I made the long run to Ticonderoga every day, it was tough ride," Avena went on
to say. "But the run was definitely worth it. I fished in the same area all week
but every day was different. I figured out that the fish were there but you had
to change your presentation in order to get them to bite.

"On day one I used a variety of baits; swimbaits, senkos and I did some
flipping," Avena continued. "On day two I was using swimbaits and buzzbaits and
today it was all about the crankbaits, I was using Whiskey River Craws.
