Bergen Annual Candlewood All-Nighter 2012

 Ah yes, the Bergen Bassmaster Annual All-Nighter at Candlewood Lake, CT.  It took a 3 lb average to win it and most of the field had an ok night.  The weather was quite comfortable but according to the anglers, the night was still missing that time we all wait for- when the bass turn on with a feeding frenzy around midnight.  All in all though it was a pretty good night. 

In First Place, and maintaining a stronghold on Angler of the Year standings was former 2010 AOY, John Ernest.  John weighed in one largemouth and 4 smallies for a total of 15 lbs, 4 oz.  Congrats and keep it going John!

Placing Second and keeping the heat on Mr. Ernest for Angler of the Year was Jason Mordhorst.  Missing out on first place by just a pound, Jason limited with a mixed bag of 2 largies and 3 smallies for a total of 14 lbs, 4 oz.  Good job Jason! 

Placing Third, and making a push for a top six finish was The Frogger himself, Billy Vella.  Splitting his bag evenly with 2 large and 3 small, Bill weighed in with10 lbs, 11oz.  Great job and keep it going Billy!

 In Fourth Place, and the only Non-boater in the top five was former Club President Bob Murphy.  Coming in with a limit consisting of 2 largemouth and 3 smallies, Bob's total weight was 10 lbs, 9 oz.  Great night Bob!

Coming in Fifth Place and making a push for a Top Six finish himself was last year's Angler of the Year, Steve Rusert.   Weighing in an even 10 lb mixed bag limit of 2 largies and 3 smallies, Steve will surely make a nice jump in the standings.  Keep going Stevie!

 Lunker Honors were taken by 2nd place finisher Jason Mordhorst.  Jason weighed in a chunky largemouth that weighed 4 lbs, 13 oz.  Have a night Jason- congrats.

 Next up will be Bergen's Annual 2-Day Classic which had a change of venue and was moved from Cayuga Lake to Cross Lake, a body of water never fished in the history of the Bergen Bassmasters.  Hopefully it will prove to be a memorable one!

 See you there!
