Winner: Trappers Keeper: Troops 3 Bag Limit: BN06 2 Keepers while the 3rd got away:Summary: COOPER RIVER PARK showed signs of activity even with the approach of that storm, rain, and wind combination. Anglers caught many fish of all species. A little tiger muskie from Troop to sunnies and catfish by others. Water temps seemed balance throughout unless you ventured towards Haddonfield which water temps dropped down to 72 degrees. Kayakers and rowers stayed there distance with the impending bad weather but the sun eventually came back out. Some giants were lost reported by anglers and that could have made the difference between 1st and 2nd place in the Tag Team event.
In All, 18 out of 20 SJHT Anglers
caught at least 1 Bass.
There were a total of 44 Bass caught overall.
This was 14 more Bass caught than our time down on the LUMS SP. The Cooper River Park Bass gave way to a total of 79.64lbs caught overall.
which was 32.20lbs more total weight than we caught 2 weeks ago.
The avg. weight came out to be 1.81lbs. 11 Anglers
caught at least there 3 Bass Limit. 4 anglers caught at least 2 Bass.
Great club overall turnout and we were still missing another 5 or so anglers. Congrats to the winners and New 2020 SJHT Tag Team Champs.
