Tournament #5 is done!
We fished Snipatuit Pond today. The day started calm and clear, so like probably everyone did, I started out fishing topwater. I didn’t have much luck catching bass, but did pretty damn good catching pickerel. We should’ve done a side pool for pickerel lunker. Haha.
Anyway, about an hour in I caught my first bass, a dink. I made my way into Black Pond around 9 AM, intending to first skip the frog under the overhanging bushes, but some other guys were fishing that area, so I moved down to the other end and began fishing the pads with a Damiki Air Frog. No luck in the pads…
Then I cast out deeper over some milfoil, and a giant inhaled the frog. The way it hit, I was convinced it was a pike or an 8-pounder. Unfortunately it was just 4lb 14oz (20.5″).
Not long after, in the same area, I pulled out another 4-pounder (19.25″). Right around the corner, flipping into a laydown, I got another (19.25″). Right after that, once again on the frog, I nailed another (19″).
Four four-pounders in twenty minutes! Unreal.
The bite died after that. It took me a couple hours to catch another bass. I skipped the frog up under a little culvert that had some water pouring into it from the bog on the other side, and a bass nailed it. It went 17.25″, which was good to cull the dink. And that was it for me, aside from a few more pickerel.
Pretty awesome day, though. I was in the right place at the right time.
Here are the complete results:
1st Place: Ken Wood – 95.25″
2nd Place: Chris Diranian – 60″
3rd Place: Bruce Levy (Bam) – 57″
Lunker: Ken Wood – 20.5″
Thanks again to everyone who came out. You guys rock! And congrats, Chris and Bruce!
Next one is Johns Pond on July 9. Hope to see you there!
