Tournament Results

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….!!

Bob with first place and BIG fish!!
Me with 3rd place… Woohooo!!

Mega-fish Chris!!
Chang wasn’t messing around either!!

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!!

1st Place – John
2nd Place – Chris
3rd Place – Milton
4th Place – Luther
5th Place – Chuck
6th Place – Bob

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!!

Milton, our big fish, and 1st place winner, tearing it up from the back of the boat!! Way to go!!!
Luther with 2nd place!!
Me, wrapping it up in 3rd… WooooHoooo!!

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!!

1st place, and BIG fish winner, John.
2nd place Chris, with what appears to be a fish as big as he is 😉

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!!
