Last night, our latest Thursday Night Throwdown event took place on Chauncy Lake in Westborough. A surprisingly low turnout for this one, with only five anglers registering.
Chauncy is a great little spot, so I had expected more people to sign up.
Whatever the case, I watched the standings from Maine, and it was a back-and-forth battle for a while, with the top spot changing hands multiple times.
A small cull from Steve Hedges or Matthew Conant would have given them the win.
Nate Chagnon made a late run for the top, putting up two fish in the last 30 minutes, but he was unable to find a third. A 14-incher would have given him the win.
In the end, Mike Morcone walked away with second place and lunker. Mike put up 37.75 with just two fish, a 19.75 and an 18. An 8-incher would have secured the victory, but Mike also couldn’t find that third fish.
Lee Kennon joined us for the first time in a while and found a good one within the first 10 minutes, then two more just after 7 PM. At 8 PM, he uploaded all three and jumped to the top of the leaderboard, where he stayed for the remainder of the event.
Lee also nabbed pickerel lunker with a 19.5-incher.
Congrats, man! Great job.

The next Thursday Night Throwdown will be on Snipatuit Pond next Thursday, September 9. Registration goes live Friday morning at 10 AM. Should be a good one!
