What can I say?  What an incredible way to end SJHT 2018 Bass Fishing Season.

My hat goes off to all of the members that came out week in and week out to compete, bust some stones, win a couple of $$$, and just enjoy being out on the water amongst one another.   A Big congrats to 4 Time Anger of Year winner Mr. Jackson Fu.  He once again put on a show even when the bite was tough.



Congrats to SJHT 2018 Rookie Angler of the Year
  Bryson Smith.



I would be remissed if I didn't congratulate the Top 6 Anglers on outstanding finish.  The numbers don't lie.  Between the number of Bass caught, Lunkers, and Total Weight, I believe one can say work was put in on and off the water.

Alright....let's get to this weekends 2018 SJHT 2 Day Bass Classic.  Today, 13 out of the 17 Qualifiers descended upon Lums Pond located in Bear, DE where it's a winner Take all event and the coveted 2018 SJHT Custom Bass Classic Championship Belt.





There were a total of 20 Bass caught giving way to a total of 38.35lbs. 10 out of 13 anglers caught at least 1 Bass. We had 4 limits caught. Day 1 Lunker went 3.80lbs and was won by Brian *Whoah Daddy* M. The overall avg. weight went 1.92lbs. There were 20 Largemouth Bass weighed in.

2018 3rd Place regular season angler Brian *I was feeling good* M. led Day 1 with 3 Bass weighing a total of 6.46lbs. He was followed by the 2018 Top 6th Finisher Bill *The Hammer* L. with 3 Bass going 6.39lbs. In 3rd place was Matt *Gotta Keep Catching Em* R. with 2 Bass going 5.11lbs.

Brian's 3 Bass going 6.46lbs-Day 1 Leader:



Bill's 3 Bass going 6.39lbs:




Matt's 2 Bass going 5.11lbs:




Rob's 3 Bass going 4.21lbs:



I got my eye on you.....lol



Jiggen Den's 3 Bass going 4.03lbs:



Big Al's Lone Keeper going 2.78lbs:



Trappers Lone Keeper going 2.48lbs.:

So with  less than a .07lb difference between 1st and 2nd place, most anglers that didn't do well at LUMS Pond felt pretty good heading into Day 2 of the Mercer Lake event.  With anglers doing well there last time out at Mercer, they knew there were some 5lbers and  6lbers lurking in the deep stuff.

Once again thanks for a great report and  ;PHO) BN06 and looks like a good way to end the regular season and congratulation to Mr. Brian *SubFish* McCulley for winning this years Classic. ~c~ ~c~ and to  Angler of Year for the 4 Time"  Mr. Jackson Fu.  ~c~ ~c~ I will be looking forward to your report from the  2018 SJBCA Bass Bowl to be held on the Delaware River Sunday, October 14, 2018.  ;D I noticed that you didn't bring any fish to the scale on day two was it because you just couldn't get any legal fish to bite the second day? Them some nice looking Awards and Plaques also.

LipRipper....on Day#2 the bites were few and far in between.  That includes Brian, Matts, and Bills bass that were caught.  Not till the last hour or so did Brian have a keeper.  Unlike Day#1, where anglers caught dink after dink below the 12" requirement, it was pretty tough getting a bite on Day#2 after the fog burned away.  Hence the making the video with that barely 6" Bass.  Lol. 

Anglers searched East and West on Mercer Lake and for those that did not pitch/Flip tight into coverage, it was a struggle.  Brian had nothing going into thrle 12pm noon time slot but he found cooler water and apparently they were playing hide N Seek with him.  Lol.

Once everybody saw that 5.15lber, we knew it was a wrap.  Rightfully so.

The Top 6 Anglers fish the SJBCA Bass bowl, i didnt finish high enough in the overall standings to be elegible to fish it, however as an Executive Board member an 1st  VP of the SJBCA, I'm quite sure ill be there in attendance to help out and make sure things run smoothly and my Club 6-Man Team has my unbiased support.   ~beer~

It's always a fun time because its basically bragging rights for the rest of the year along with a little purse to the overall winning team.

No points or any effect on our clubs season as we are officially done.

Appreciate the invite BassinLou.  Ill definitely be jumping in and watching from afar.  That fishing shadow box is pretty neat.  Just hope the Fu Man gets well and healthy so i can present in person.  He was out on Day#2 and thus made the standings even more intriguing.

I see you LippR.  Lol
