Bass-Jons Tournament Results - Lake Cohoon - August 11, 2012


The day started out humid, with winds 10 -15 miles an hour and scattered showers throughout the day.  The barometer was steady at 29.93. Luther Showaker took 1st place with 15.12 lbs and a nice 7.8 lb Hawg to his credit.  Not to be outdone, Jim Carlson was a close second with 15.02 and had Lunker of the day with a big mule weighing 8.04 lbs.  Anglers reported that one of the big fish was taken on the jig-and-pig, while the other fell for a finesse worm. The rest of the field reported that the majority of their fish came on soft plastics, a few on crank-baits.

There has been a shakeup at the top of the Bass-Jons awards categories after this event.  Luther Showaker has taken over the top spot in the Angler of the Year standings on the strength of several strong summer showings, followed by Larry King and defending champion Rick Burton.  Victor and Aida Lopez have slipped to 4th place in the AOY standings, while Aida maintains a strong grip on the Co-AOY race.  Also, Jim Carlson has unseated Luther for the Lunker of the Year with his 8 lb 4 oz giant caught at Cohoon.
