Can you say lay the smack down!

Merrill Creek Reservoir definitely is something we're not use to but for some....it just separated the men from the boys!!!




As we come down towards our 2017 Regular Season finale, we've just completed our 16th Event of the 2017 season with 1 more to come.

Merrill Creek Fog rolling in...



Let me just quickly say that Merrill Creek and there Reservoir Staff are second to none.  Very courtesy, very professional, and will to open up the gate slightly early to relieve some of the parking on the main roadway into the boat ramp area. Kudo's to Mr. Jim.

and he strikes again....



Without further adieu, please give a big shout out to Jackson *Who's Yo Daddy!!! F.  for taking 1st place, Lunker, and Miscellenous winner with 3 Bass weighing 11.47lbs. Jackson's Lunker went a Whopping 5.36lbs Miscellenous Pickeral went 1.64lbs.  2nd Place was won by Dan *Damn Daniel* F.
 
with 3 Bass going 9.49lbs. 3rd Place was Wayne *Moe* Sr.  with 2 Bass going 3.02lbs.    What is there left to be done?  Congrats Men!!!

The SJHT gang and the scenary:















Summary:  Does anyone\anything have Krptonite to slow the FU Man Down???  This is like his 4th straight victory.  At what looked like Rob would run away with things in defending his 2016 AOY Title, the Fu Man has come on like Gang Busters!!!  He's not only winning but winning with Quality Lunker type bass typically unseen from most of us.

All in all 6 out of 8 anglers caught at least 1 Bass.  There were a total of 12 Bass caught giving way to a total of 28.23lbs.  This was more than a week ago where the same # of Bass were caught but today's weight yielded 11lbs more in total weight.  This increase in weights gave way to a 2.35lbs per bass avg..   There was only 2 Limits caught..


Overall, MERRILL CREEK RESEVOIR provided an environment where you had to know how to fish in waters nearing 140' in certain spots.  Navigate the grass lines and be willing to pitch\flip in areas where snags do occur.  The water is crystal clear and populated with various grass depths.  I for one enjoyed the early morning bites and the fact of catching or marking fish in 15' of water and then catching them.  There were a total of 4 Smallies caught among the 8 Largemouth Bass.  Although the Tape of the Tape is not indicative of the Larger bass caught, Merrill Creek did give up a 5 Plus lber and one over 3.5lbs.  I wasn't surprised but the clearness on my Hummingbird 899 CI\SI was really vivid.  That's all I have.

Next up is CONOWINGO DAM..  Hope to see everyone next Saturday. 


Tightlines,

Greetings LipRipper......

Yes Merrill Creek is definitely a nice place to wet a line.  Not too mention the locals up that way seem very friendly.  That water was ultra crystal clear with visibility down past 5'.

Its about a little over 2hr drive for most but definitely worth if one wants to test there catching ability and gain a sense self analysis. 

And for the record, once i found out where the bass were located...i didnt want to leave.   ~cf  ~gf~bb
