July 19th and 20th, 2014 Black Lake 8th and 9th Tournaments.
Our 8th and 9th tournaments of the season took place on beautiful Black Lake NY. The weather could not have been more perfect. 15 anglers took to the waters Saturday the 19th and everyone brought in fish. 6 limits came to the scales. Whacki...n' em with Senkos wacky style and coming in third with 5 fish for 12.77 lbs was Terry Maloney. Second was Mike Longacre with 5 fish for 13.13 lbs, mostly on Senkos and a nice smallie on a sweet beaver. And 1st place , using salty spiders, was captured by Dale Bernhart with a limit for 13.46 lbs. Jesse Buss grabbed the lunker for the day with a nice 3.90 largemouth.
Sunday was a tougher day. The fish just weren't willing to take the bait as easy as the previous day. 24 fish were caught this day, no limits, compared to 54 fish caught the day before. Dale Bernhart snatched another check with a third place finish catching 3 fish for 7.58 lbs. The only angler to catch more than 3 fish this day to grab second palce was Cody Schwartz with 4 fish for 8.60 lbs. Dale and Cody fishing together were locating and working salty spiders around underwater humps out on the main lake. And beating all fishermen this day, with jig n' pigs, Jesse Buss with 3 fish for 10.25 lbs. His 5.08 bigmouth lunker put him over the top. Congrats to all!!! It was a great time, had by all!!!
We are now looking forward to the final tournament of the year for all the Marbles! The Big fish on Lake Wallenpaupack takes the Big Fish Money home with them which has escalated into a couple hundred bux!! The final points will be assessed with a couple of close races and leaving it at any bodies game! Carl Bernhart has an edge over Brother Dale. Even Fran Girard could sneak in from behind with a good showing on the Pack but will need some help from the front runners! This should be an exciting last tournament
