Well..Well...Well! What an unbelievable turnout for our re-opening of the 2012 NJ Bass fishing season!!! I terribly wished I could have stayed longer, but judging from the weights and number of fish caught, I believe we set a new SJHT Record for the number of Limits and Largemouth Bass caught overall
We had a total of 21 members and 3 Guest
on Saturday. There were 48 Total Bass caught
giving way to a total weight
. This brought the avg. weight
of each Bass up to 1.77lbs.
There was a SJHT record of 12 anglers (3 Bass) Limits caught
. There were 5 anglers
that caught at least 2 Bass
and 2 anglers
that caught at least 1 Bass
Fantastic job men and women!!!
Shout out goes out to our lone Female angler member
who was able to catch her first official keeper Bass of the season
in the Mrs. Janeen Leech
(wife of Bill *The Hammer* Leech
Bill's *The Hammer* L. catch:

Word on the street is that anglers, caught there bass all throughout the Day
. I can't report how many anglers went passed the Rt. 130 overpass and how many ventured towards Cuthbert Blvd., but the consensus was that that bass were very active
and in the Chomping mood
. I wish I knew what baits were effective vs. what was not, but I'll let the guys and gals add there respective Day on the lake analysis. The upcoming Cooper River Tournament
hosted by Top Rod Bass Masters
should be a good one.
