|Details:||Great fishery, great place to fish, could not prove it by my efforts! BVBA tourny to the Lower conn. river N.H. + Vt was really looked forward to, but alas, I sucked a lot of wind. My apologies to my partner Lee, as I did not put us on fish. The game plan on staying south of Brattleboro and hooking up with a few good size Lms did not happen. 1st spot really looked good with weed gravel and fist size rock, close to the channel, but only resulted in Lee picking up a sm pike. Opposite side with wood along shore, nothing. Quick ride to Vernon dam area, shallows, current, wood, coves, 3hrs spent and 2 walleyes the result. High point of the day, Lee landed 1st walleye a nice 4 lber! Return to 1st coupla spots and Lee was able to boat a Sm smallie in 2 ft of water behind a rock. Traveled beyond the rte. 9 bridge on the N.H. side fishing wood and docks where Lee was able to pick up a 2.75 lb Lm off a tree in skinny water that I had repeatly cast a wacky senko to. By 2:30 I only had scored a walleye and many short sms. I landed a keeper sm at 2:35 that Lee convinced me to measure and I was able to save myself from a goose egg with a .87 lb monster! Baits that did not work for me were: Mojo lizard, spidergrub, sidewinder worm, and crigged baits. Lee's fish came on a finesse bl worm that he threw into 2-4 ft of water.
Big Bags came from up north, John K winning his first tourny with an awesome bag of Sms weighing in at 13.16 lbs and Ed scored a bag of Sms at 11.89, good for 3rd place.2nd and 4th place came from down south with Pete and Matt scoring 4 lms each with weights of 12.43 and 11.74lbs.Pete had a 5.34lber, his personal best bass!, and Matt had a 5.3. Good job guys!
