Details:1st time competing in the fish-offs, and I was excited although the fishing would be a grind. Both days were different weather wise, no clouds, blue bird skies, less wind. Fog delays both days, 15-20 mins on day 1, and an hour on day 2. Avid Anglers sent 4 members, John S, and Dave as boaters, and Me and Fred as non-boaters. Top 13 at the end of day 2 qualifies for the Divisional's next year.

So day 1 I was pair with boater Jim, nice guy! Started in one of his spots both throwing topwater with no love. We see someone else near by catch one on a spinner bait, which prompts both of us to throw one as well. 10 minutes I about get my rod knocked out of my hand with a viscous strike. Fight to the boat my only keeper fish of the day, a 3.44lb Smallmouth. Jim later in the day would get his only keeper of the Day on a jig off a dock, a 3.46lb Smallie.

Day 2 I was paired up with Joe (lhpsnd). We had a fun day although fishing was just as tough. We ran many spots, threw many baits. Finally about noontime we were able to get some fish in the boat. Me 1st on drop shot a 2.38lb Largemouth, my only keeper of the day. Joe next with 2 more Largemouth for 3lbs combined. Thats it, Candlewood was a stingy b****.

Recap, Only one guy (Dan) out of 54 anglers put it together both days with good limits finishing with a total of 25.49lbs, well done. Next closest was 16lbs. My buddy John S had Tourney Lunker with a 5lb Largemouth, and also fished in 11th place. My buddy Fred wrapped up the top 12. I finished tied for 23rd with my 2 fish for 5.82lbs. Good experience, and looking forward to next year on Lake Champlain!
