Dan Rose wins at Long Pond

ABA AFT Division 5 held a tournament on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at Long Pond, Harwich, MA. It was cloudy, windy and raining when the anglers showed up for registration. The north wind was blowing at 10-20 mph and remained steady until late mid-morning. According to most, the bite was an early one and seemed to turn off when the sun broke through the clouds and the wind shifted to the SSW. One would think the opposite pattern should have taken place. Nevertheless, we had some beautiful smallmouth & largemouth weighed in for a total of 44 fish weighed in with a combined weight of 75.08 lbs. for an average weight per fish of 1.71 lbs.

In what turned out to be a lopsided victory Richard Bates scored a four pound margin of victory on the Chickahominy River May 12.  “This was a personal best for me on this river.  Everything just fell into place today.  All my fish came fishing Zoom plastics shallow.  There had to be cover of some sort to find the fish.  Every bite came when my bait was in contact with wood of some sort.  The big fish followed the bait out from wood and struck a few feet after I had contacted the cover,” said Bates.
