For those of you who’re into stats, we added a few new pages to the website. They are as follows:

Here is a more detailed breakdown of our year…
This year we ran a total of 14 tournaments, including the post-season Sabbatia event, which were attended 228 times by 54 individual anglers.
Our biggest turnout was 23 anglers at the East/West Monponsett tournament, while our lowest turnout was just 10 at Glen Charlie (though, if I recall correctly, we had something like 19 signed up before the weather turned people away).
During our tournaments, 886 fish were submitted (thanks for judging most of them, Sarah). The most fish submitted in any one event was 116 at Lake Boon, with the lowest being just 24 at Lake Maspenock (or 17 at Sabbatia, if you want to include the one post-season mid-November tournament).
We submitted a total of 9,630.75 inches of bass to TourneyX (thanks, Dwayne). These are the totals per event:
230.00 – Lake Sabbatia
308.25 – Lake Maspenock
462.25 – Billington Sea
522.00 – Glen Charlie
667.25 – Lake Nippenicket
668.50 – Lake Rico
697.25 – A-1/Stump Pond
749.50 – Chauncy Lake
750.75 – Cook Pond
757.75 – Robbins Pond/Stump Pond
826.25 – East/West Monponsett Pond
868.50 – Charles River
915.50 – Lake Boon
1,207.00 – Oldham Pond
Those numbers do not include culled submissions.
The top three limits of the year were:
Edmar Junior – 89.50 (Chauncy Lake)
Mike Elrick – 89.00 (Oldham Pond)
Domenic Eno – 88.25 (East/West Monponsett Pond)
The top three largemouth lunkers (two of which were 8-pounders) were:
Bruce Levy – 23.00 (Stump Pond)
Peter Arruda – 21.75 (Lake Rico)
Mark Johnson – 21.50 (Glen Charlie Pond)
The top three smallmouth lunkers (none of which were even 2-pounders) were:
Bruce Levy/Ken Wood – 14.25 (Cook Pond)
Donald Davis – 12.50 (Lake Maspenock)
Chris Diranian – 12.00 (Billington Sea)
In everyone’s defense, we didn’t fish many spots with smallies this year, and those we did fish aren’t known as great smallmouth fisheries.
Oddly enough, Ken Wood technically caught the biggest smallie (16.25) this year at Oldham, but apparently we missed the memo stating smallies were now in that pond. And he lost a bigger one that day, too! Crazy.
Anyway, Bruce Levy had the most first-place finishes, with four (including the Sabbatia win). Ken Wood tried to do his best Aaron Martens impression this year and placed second six times! Donald Davis was right on his heels by placing third five times.
Overall it was a pretty damn good year! This was just our second year in existence, and we think it was a great success. We have a solid schedule lined up for next year with a lot of different locations that are a bit less centralized to the south shore. Should be even better than this year!
