2015 Frosty Rods Open Event a huge sucess


The Frosty Rods event held up to its name once again this year.  Temperatures were in the low 30's as anglers left their houses to make their way to Rock Creek Lake anticipating the bites of big bass.  The forecast projected temperatures to raise into the mid-sixities as the day went on and that would surely wake up those Rock Creek bass!  Here are the results from the 17 teams that participated.
