Along with a near battle royal in hand to hand combat!!!! Yeah...that type of day for me.... but I shall not digress! A little later...
Lets get it going!!
Saturday, SJHT had 17 Anglers and 1 guest
came out to do battle on our 2nd official tournament of the 2020 season. LUMS SP
. The action was quite interesting being that we typically fish this body of water in late April but with the Covid-19 in effect...this was our 1st opportunity at it. It definitely fished a bit different but still some impressive results.
Without further adieu, please give a big congrats and shout outs to last weeks winner and now this weeks winner Brian *SubFish* McCulley
for 1st place and Lunker
with 3 Bass going 7.48lbs
. Brian's lunker went 2.81lbs. Bill *The Hammer* L. took 2nd Place
with 3 Bass going 5.97lbs
. 3rd Place
was won by Bryson *Must Be the Boat* S.
with 3 Bass going 5.72lbs
was won by Mick *Come Late* J.

Keepers:Welcome New Rookie member Paul T. with his 1st Keeper: and finally my 2 Keepers...which should have been 3 better ones...but oh well:
The face of defeat heading back to the ramp knowing you let 3 good ones get away...and the S**T show parking lot Non-Social Distancing in DE.Packed Parking Lot:Summary: LUMS SP once again showed what it can put out on somewhat the right conditions. Anglers caught many species of fish but Mick hauling in that 14.43lb Catfish that somehow fit in his livewell was AMAZING. The big girls were out and so were the cookie cutter size bass.
In All, 16 out of 18 SJHT Anglers
caught at least 1 Bass.
There were a total of 30 Bass caught overall.
This was 3 more Bass caught than our time down on the Sassafras River. The Lums SP Bass gave way to a total of 47.44lbs caught overall.
which to be 33.56lbs less than we caught 2 weeks ago.
The avg. weight came out to be 1.58lbs. 6 Anglers
caught at least there 3 Bass Limit.
The weights seem a bit down but then again we're not fishing these during the spawn. April definitely does make a difference.So.....the broken windshield came about while hooking onto a decent 3.5lber in the wood pictured above...while trying to grab that freaking net and leaning onto my already crack windshield. Not only did windshield shatter but that was Bass#2 lost next to the boat.
The next beatdown happen with less than 15 remaining in the Tourney...I proceeded flipping into some shade cover structure and Backlash. While I'm picking that fricking knot out....what happens? Mr. Bass returns and hits my lure. I now starting hand lining my line while trying to keep pressure on the Bass...all up in the brush\trees. By now, I have an audience of Kayakers and pleasure boaters watching and the some *itch* Jumped twice and shook the hook free while laughing at me with 1 Eye open and a "See You later" smirk across his lips!!! At this juncture... I said you know what LORD, " You WIN". On this day...the Bass won! But all in all....3 different fights\battle made my day on the water that much more enjoyable. I'm at peace with not so much losing those 3 Bass but how it happened. I wish I could make this up but All is still well!!! That's the truth. Way to come out SJHT anglers .
Brian, Bill, Brandon, and Mick congrats and nice Misc.
Next up is COOPER RIVER PARK in 2 weeks.
