Bass-Jons Tournament Results - Lake Meade - 3/10/2012

Bass-Jons' kicked off their 2012 season on Lake Meade.  Despite the warm temperatures and favorable weather throughout the week, the anglers were greeted with post frontal conditions, complete with a bluebird sky and brisk NNE winds.  Air temperatures that started in the high 30's and ended up in the high 40's created uncomfortable conditions for the anglers, but water temperatures remained over 50 degrees, so the results were average to above average for an early season event.  There were 3 limits brought in by the 16 boats that fished, and 47 bass were weighed.  Big fish were scarce, as only 5 of the bass were over 4 lbs, and none over 5 lbs.  Anglers reported most catches on some sort of plastics or jigs, with a few fish caught on crankbaits, including shad raps and square bills.

The winning limit was brought in by Walt Degraaf and Adam Bach.  Their 5-fish limit weighed 14 lbs 12 oz, which was good enough to beat the next closest team by over 5 lbs.  Their fish came on Texas-rigged trick worms, and one fish came on the bottom in 25 feet of water.  Second place went to Dan Griffin and Chaz Carrington at 9 lbs 10 oz.  Their bag included a few senko fish, but their big fish (which tied Walt's/Adam's big fish) at 4 lbs 14 oz hit a square bill shallow running crankbait at the boat over 20 feet of water.  Third place went to Luther Showaker and Greg Thompson at 9 lbs 8 oz. 

The next event is in two weeks on March 24th at Burnt Mills Reservoir.
