What a beautiful day to be on the water. The trees are in their fall splendor, bright orange with contarsting hues of yellow. Air temps in the mid 50's with little if any wind. A great day to be alive.....unless you happen to be a Red Sox fan...lol (Couldn't resist)
The fishing on the day however, was very tough...no make that incredibly tough. With 20 of the areas premier fishermen picking her apart, Lake Mahopac was less than accomodating. A grand total of 11 bass were brought to the scales. WOW
The winners were Zillokowski & Hammond of Watershed Bassmasters. This was a great year for this pair. They were also the Alliance Anglers of The Year as well. Nice job gentelman.
Another well run tournament, Ray. But you're supposed to arrange for a better bite. I've never seen Mayo as stingy as she was yesterday. But no matter how tough, somebody is going to win. Congrats to fellow Watershed Bassmasters Pop Ziolkowski & Jerry Hammond for the victory and Bob & Rich Tomasini for second place. I will be expecting Mahopac to produce better results next Sat. at the Halloween Classic. Ray, will you please see to that.
1 fish or 20lbs a win is a win and pops shure knows how to win. And hammond you may take joeys name the (hammer) if you keep this alliance pace up LOL.Hey Mr Menchen see you on the halloween classic and stay shallow LOL.Ray did you get enough guys . Me and my partner are struggling on mahopac then again I was struggling on the hudson all week then came the tourney yesterday and I pulled off a win go figure. 5bass
Joe did a great Job !!!!!
Also you have to look at the time frame...6 fish by 4pm
I am not sure what time the Tourney ends but if you look closely at Joe's post...The fish turned on LATER in the day(After the Tournament will be over)
Joe STILL caught 6 fish prior to 4pm. You and I both know how difficult the bite was 24 hours prior...Right Gary ?.
I for one am looking for a quality day and some fun....
I can't guarantee QUALITY but I can guarantee FUN.
See you all Saturday !!!
This fishing has been tough hugh? I have never remembered seeing it this bad. I guess that is what falling water levels, gin clear, in the middle of turn-over and cold weather will do for you. Its been rediculously tough for me. But, here is the good news.....
I think the tough times will all be gone by Saturday. The lake will have a chance to settle, there should be practically zero fishing pressure this week, and the turn-over should be done by then. I think its going to be a great event.
How could it not? There are so many teams in there that I would consider my friends. Scully, Pido, Woody, Paul Ritchie.....I can't wait to see these guys, reguardless of how the fishing is, and I do think it will get better this week.
Now, Im not Nostridomus, but I think its going to be a good time with pretty good fishing. Can't wait to see you guys!
I know Huge, last nights details said up to 25 MPH, so I may have to curtail this one.....the fishing is so tough there right now, I don't mind putting in the time and effort, however, while being buffeted by those relentless winds on Maho makes it almost impossible......
You have stated that you would consider fishing an open..
Well this is the best Buddy Tournament I can think of...
If Greg isn't available due to work... I think you would have NO PROBLEM filling his spot . (I can think of two guys right off the bat)
Come on Doc...Try it...You might like it
You know Maho just as well as some of the guys fishing and way more than I do...
