Mighty Mahopac 2012 

The Bergen Bassmaster Annual Half-Nighter for 2012 was hosted by the mighty Lake Mahopac.  A popular lake with many in the club, the goal was to beat the early summer heat and save fish as well as anglers!  Community holes ended up producing for a few who ended placing and the weather, with the exception of some early breezy sprinkles, cooperated fairly well. 

 In First Place and moving himself into 1st place in the Angler of the Year standings was former 2010 AOY, John Ernest.  John weighed in a limit of smallies for a whopping total of 16 lbs, 8 oz!  John was throwing a Bass Bustin' Lures spinner bait with a 4" swim bait trailer (any other size caught him stugatz he said).  Look out, here comes Johnny! 

Placing Second was Club President, Nick Albano.  Nick weighed in "1 large and 4 small" for a bag weight of 14 lbs, 5 oz.  With his finish, Nick jumped himself up 3 spots in the Angler of the Year race to 5th.  He was drop-shotting in 35 feet of water, which really didn't produce in practice rumor had it.  Well it paid off when it counted- Nice job Prez! 

Placing Third, and moving himself within striking distance (6th overall) of Angler of the Year was Mr Consistency himself, John Hayden.  John weighed 1 largemouth and 4 smallies for a 13 lb, 14 oz bag limit.  A spinner bait was the ticket for John as well, but it was the slow rolling pace that made the difference he said.  Way to go John! 

Coming in Fourth Place was 2010's Rookie of the Year, Dave Lipari.  Fishing a black & blue Bass Bustin' Lures spinner bait paid off early with a limit of smallies for Dave and a kicker largemouth came later by senko from under a dock, for a bag weight of 13 lbs, 1 oz.  Great job Dave!

 Our 5th Place finisher was Battleship captain Wayne Wilcken.  With the biggest move up in the standings for the tournament (8 spots!), Wayne weighed in a mixed-bag of 2 largemouth and 3 smallmouth for a limit total of 12 lbs, 11 oz.   Nice one Wayne! 

With a narrow 2 oz margin of victory, Lunker Honors went to 1st place finisher, John Ernest.  John weighed in a 4 lb, 2oz huss of a smallmouth on a big spinner bait with a 4" swim bait trailer.  Have a day John!

Continuing with the "Beat the Heat" theme, the Bergen club will be conducting its Annual All-Nighter at - you guessed it - Candlewood Lake.  It'll be 10 hours of fishing with blast off at 8pm.  

See you there!
