Bass-Jons Tournament Results - Western Branch - 4/19/2014

Casey Griggs with a nice Set of Fish


Bass-Jons held its fourth tourney of the year at Western Branch, and on years with great weather, this tournament usually yields an outstanding spawn bite.  However, that wasn't to be, as the weather was terrible.  Three days before the tournament, a cold front swept through the area, driving temps from the 70 down to the low 50's.  The temperatures on tournament day hovered at 50 degrees, while water temperatures started at 59 degrees and seemed to drop a few degrees throughout the day. Winds at 10 to 15 mph from the north and a constant rain fell all day long, with the barometer steady at 29.  Most of the fish were driven off the beds to an almost pre-spawn condition. 1st Place went to Huck Palmatier and Ken Knowles who caught their fish on brush hogs and worms for a winning weight of 18.72 lbs, plus they brought in the lunker of day at 6.40 lbs. 2nd Place Bob Bullen & James Brown had 16.62 lbs.  They caught all their fish off of crank baits. 3rd Place went to Jim Carlson & Matt Jennings, who were one of the few teams that reported catching fish on the beds.  They had 14.43 lbs using pig & jigs for their success. All in all everyone caught fish.
