Summary:  MERCER Lake today was tough as nails for over half of the anglers.
Between the hot air temps, almost non-existant breeze, and even the water temps, anglers barely got any bites.

In All, 5 out of 11 SJHT Anglers caught at least 1 Bass.   There wereonly a total of 11 Bass caught overall.    This was 14 LESS Bass caught than our time down at NEWTON Lake.  Mercer Lake Bass gave way to total of 31.10lbs caught overall. This was 9.68lbs Less than last week.
The avg. weight came out to be 2.83lbs.  3 Anglers caught at least there 3 Bass Limit.  There was NO angler that caught at least 2 Bass.  Decent club overall turnout in spite of the Hot scorching Air Temps.   
Congrats to Brian, Mike, Bryson S., and Brandon K. on your performanaces.

Next up is ASSUNPINK LAKE in 2 weeks.
