1st tourney of the year, on the Potomac, was extremely tough due to muddy water and lower tides. Many people stayed within Mattawoman, but still, most managed to get some fish.
Congrats to Bob, Luther and Chuck for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places respectively!! And to the BIG fish winner, Bob, again….!!
2nd tourney, out of Lake Anna, was great turn-out, as all members of the club were there! Over the 2 days, there was rain, clouds, sunshine, and blue-bird skies to top it off. Worst of all, there was a continuous wind kicking up hard for most of the time we were there, but, fun was had by all…!
Congrats to John, Chris, and Milton, who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively!! And, to the BIG fish winner, John, again!!
The 3rd tourney, out of Marshall Hall, was a tough one…! Most people caught various species of fish and lots of shorts, but only a few were able to get the ones that count. This was our hottest tournament of the year with temps reaching the low 90’s. Wind, sun, and coffee colored water was the norm, combining to make it a real grind of a day.
Congrats to Milton, Luther, and Chuck, who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively!! And, to the BIG fish winner, Milton, again!!
The 4th tourney, out of Mariners Point marina, was an interesting one…. The weather was perfect, the wind was perfect, the cover, downed trees, water color, and possibilities were perfect! Unfortunately, if you weren’t at the right place when the fish turned on, then it was all for naught.
In the end, most people didn’t even get a bite, and only a couple people were at the right place at the right time…
Congrats to John and his rider, Chris, who won 1st and 2nd respectively!! And, to the BIG fish winner, John, again!!
The 5th tourney, on the Conowingo, started out looking like extremely promising to say the least…. Anglers who fished the tourney here last year were pleasantly surprised by unclogged, and almost wide open coves, as the usual lumber yards on top of the water witnessed by fishermen last time, were almost non-existent this time. Even Glen cove was completely fish-able, and, fruitful 😉
The water ranged from creamed-coffee if you were lucky, to straight up doo-doo brown, and the winds were crazy, causing white caps at times. All in all the day could have been worse, but, we all caught fish.
Congrats to Marty, Bob, and Christian, who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively!! And, to the BIG fish winner, Marty-Dog, again!!
The 6th tourney, on the Nanticoke, was the hottest one of the year, with temps getting to 110+, with the heat index. Was told it was a real grind of a day. Congrats to Chris, John, and Bob, who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place respectively. And to Chris again for winning the BIG fish!!
The 7th tourney, on the Wicomico river was an interesting one for me at least, as I had never been there, and wasn’t sure what to expect. The fishing was tough, and getting them to stay on seamed to be tougher. In the end, every boat caught fish….., even if they weren’t bass.
Congrats to John, Me, and Chris, who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place respectively. And to John again, for winning the BIG fish!! Stay tuned for more info…
The 8th tourney had us headed out on the upper bay, giving us some nice, cool weather, wind, cloudy skies for the most part, and some great fishing conditions overall. Water was anywhere from almost coffee, to very clear, and while still a typical upper bay grind, for most, the fish were biting!!
Congratts to Chris, Bob, and Luther, who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place respectively. And to Milton who got the LUNKER of the day!!
The 9th tourney had us headed out on a 2-day at Kerr Lake with hopes of monster fish, from a new fishery for most….
Weather was fishingly-awesome both days and ran from pretty cold mornings to cloudy and/or muggy conditions during the afternoons.
In the end, everyone had a great time, and caught fish! some more than others since the slot limits had us all searching for that 14+ inch fish needed to seal the deal..
Congratts to Martin, Chris, and John, who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place respectively. And to Bob who got the LUNKER of the Tourney!!
The 10th tourney had us out on the Conowingo lake area for our last tourney of the year.
A brisk morning, combined with a thick fog, led to an erie start to what would turn out to be a very nice day. Water color was clear and awesome to green and awesome and with the winds a whirling, the promise of a great fishing day was in the air, despite the cold front that had come over night.
In the end, these waters were no match for some people, and some people were no match for these waters… And, after speaking with other clubs about their bag weights, it was obivious that for most on the water, it was a serious grind of a day…, resulting in skunkage.
HUGE CONGRATTS to Big-Fish Chris, for 1st place, and Angler Of The Year, all from the back of the boat. John for BIG Fish of the Tourney, landing him 2nd place, and Bob, rounding out 3rd…!!
Stay tuned for more info and updates!!
