AVID IS A MASSACHUSETTS BASS FEDERATION CLUB

2015 Tournament Report

Lake Champlain - Jun. 29, 2014

  

Paul's Ticonderoga Smallmouth Pay Dividends

OK, there's quite a lot of news to get through in conjunction with Avid's (annual?) two-day event on Champlain. In no particular order, we'll find out the 2014 Angler and Co-angler of the year; the 2014 big fish award; the day 1, day 2, and combined winners; the new club records that were set, and the tournament reports for each day.

Pretty much everyone made it up to pre-fish on Friday, which saw a consistent weather pattern continue from the previous several days: mostly sunny skies with temps in the 80s with a light breeze. Friday's breeze - what little there was of it -- was from the north. Water temps were in the low to mid 70s. A nearly perfect setup for a good largemouth bite. The morning was foggy until about 8 am. The largemouth seemed to be positioned on the outside weed edges and the calm conditions made for a good topwater bite. It slowed as the day progressed but was effective all weekend, even as fish moved deeper into cover with the rising sun and heat. Fish could be gotten on frogs, Spooks and buzzbaits. For those that wouldn't rise to the bait, spider grubs, shaky heads, flipping, dropshotting and powershotting coaxed fish into the boat.
