Tournament Results

2017 Tournament Season

Well our season opener started off frosty and cold but warmed into the 60’s by weigh-in time. Luther brought in the only limit with 5 fish weighing almost 14 pounds with the daily lunker of 5.97 pounds. Adam and John had 3 and 4 fish respectively weighing 7 plus and 4 plus pounds each. Martin struggled to catch 1 lone fish weighing 2 plus pounds. Day 2 started off a little bit warmer with temps into the 70’s by weigh-in time. Luther again had a nice bag of 4 fish weighing 6 plus pounds with John and Adam bringing in 2 and 1 fish respectively weighing 3 plus and 2 plus pounds each. However, Martin finally found some fish bringing in 3 fish for 9 plus pounds with the daily lunker of 6.00 pounds. Congrats to Luther, Martin and Adam for taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd and lunker.

Tournament #2 on the Potomac River launching out of Smallwood State Park. Mother nature threw us a curve with temps in the upper 80’s to low 90’s on April 30th. The fish seem confused and so did most of us. However, Luther again brought in a nice bag of fish with his biggest one going 3.66 lbs and his total of 11.63 including a dead fish penalty. John managed 2 fish including his lunker of 3.84 which just edged out Luther’s big fish for lunker. Adam and Chuck brought in 1 solid fish each weighing between 2.8 and 2.5 lbs each. Congrats to Luther, John and Adam for taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Lunker.

Tournament #3 on the Upper Bay launching out of Tydings Marina. Another tough tournament for the club. Even though the weather was fine, cloudy with temps in the mid to upper 60’s, the fish were no where to be found. Rumor has it the fish were on beds in the marinas. Adam was the only member who was able to catch keepers this day. He managed 2 fish for 4.16 lbs with lunker going 2.38 lbs. Congrats to Adam on taking first place and lunker.

Tournament #5 on Piney Run Reservoir was a first for the club since we have never fished an electric only lake. The weather was warm, humid and mostly overcast for most of the day. Fishing was not easy, however, after the last 2 tournaments on the Upper Bay, most members were satisfied with the day and seemed to like the clear water lake and the picturesque scenery. John was the only member who managed to bring in a 5 fish limit with a 2.15 lb lunker. Chuck, fishing from the back of Martin’s boat, claimed 2nd place with 3 fish for 3.34 lbs. Bob coming off his win out of Dundee, took 3rd place with 2 fish for 3 lbs after a 4 oz penalty for a dead fish. Martin brought up the rear with 2 fish for 2.21 lbs. We also had 2 guests fishing with us. Alex Cosner fishing with his Dad Luther, out fished him with a 1.5 lb monster. Also, prospective member Aaron Watkins fishing from the back of Bob’s boat, caught a 1.24 lb bass with a chatter bait. Congrats to John, Chuck and Bob for taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd and lunker.

Tournament #6 on the Upper Bay launching out of Tydings Marina. Finally a tournament where everyone caught fish. There was not a common pattern or lure, since the bass were caught everywhere and on everything. Bob brought in the only limit culling once for almost 10 lbs. Martin got lucky with a 4.32 lb lunker plus a keeper to edge out 2nd place over John’s 4 fish for 4.41 lbs. Rounding out the field was Luther with 3 fish for 3.34 lbs., Adam with 2 fish for 2.65 lbs., and Chris with 1 fish for 2.6 lbs., and his first fish for the year! Congrats to Bob, Martin and John for taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd and lunker.

Tournament #7 on Conowingo Reservoir launching out of Glen Cove. Other than a few floating logs the day was pretty good in the fact that everyone caught fish. Luther had the only limit of fish pushing over 6.5 lbs, however, a dead fish penalty plus a 5 minute late penalty lowered him to 6th place. Next came Chris with 3 fish for over 5.8 lbs including a lunker of 2.59 lbs giving him his first win ever. John also had 3 fish for over 4.2 lbs giving him 2nd place. Bob also had 3 fish for over 3.6 lbs giving him 3rd place. New member Chang Song caught 3 fish as well for 3.5 lbs, however, a 5 minute penalty wiped out his weight. Chuck bagged 2 nice smallies for 2.68 lbs and the only picture. Martin brought up the rear again with 2 fish for just over 2 lbs. Congrats to Chris, John and Bob for taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd and lunker.

Tournament #8 on the Sassafras River launching out of Duffy Creek Marina on an unusually warm September day and bluebird sky, made for a challenging day of fishing. For the first time since the second tournament of the year we had %100 of the members fishing with 2 guests. Of the 10 people fishing only 4 members came in with fish. Luther had one fish that was big enough for first place and lunker that went 5.65 lbs. New member Chang came in with 2 fish weighing 3.13 lbs and claiming 2nd place. Bob’s fish of 1.92 lbs was enough to edge out Martin’s 1.66 lb fish for 3rd place. Hopefully with cooler weather and the fact that the Chickahominy river is currently a big bass factory, we will see increased limits and weights next tournament. Congrats to Luther, Chang and Bob on taking 1st, 2nd 3rd and Lunker.
