Weekend results

This past weekend had mixed results to say the least. After the very nice weather from last weekend in the 70's, we dropped down into the high of low 50's on Saturday and Sunday. This resulted in water temperature's dropping significantly on Lake Anna and the Potomac River. Whatever ground we were gaining , we lost. I think we can make that up though this coming weekend as temp's are supposed to climb into the 80's. Anyway, my friend Jr. Hillyard and I fished the VAO Open on Saturday and he caught 3 keepers and I lost 3 keepers. Came in 1 place out of the $$ as usual. The picture is of Jr. with three for 5.22 lbs. Not a great day, but a good time with friends. Other area results are listed as well.

Here are the results from some of the local tournaments we fish on Lake Anna and the Potomac River from this past weekend. While I was unable to fish, there were plenty of boats out in the beautiful mid-70 degree weather taking my place.

Lake Anna Report

I was on Lake Anna last Tuesday pre-fishing for a VAO tournament that was yesterday (Saturday 3-13-10)...Temps and water was looking real good until the last 2 two days of torrentail rain with flooding conditions. So yesterday, Lee and I put on all the foul weather gear we owned, prepareing for another 3" of rain and wind 25mph with gusts to 40 mph. Well, the weather man threw everyone a curve ball in that particular area of the dtate and none of the above ever happened. Not much rain and hardly any wind. Either way, we couldn't get a decent bite going and wound up with only 2 fish for 4+lbs and 7th place. All in all a great day to be out with son and other friends. The winners did find enough fish chasing bait (pictured above) to come in with over 14 lbs.

A BIG 'ol PIG!!!!

My friend and fellow VAO member, Garry Cramer, was fishing with another member/friend, (Jim Whitman), this past Saturday in the Championship Teams Open at Lake Anna and Garry proceeded to catch a fish of his lifetime. This one weighed 9.11 lbs. and got the team a third place finish with just one fish. Kudos to Garry and also to Jim for putting him on the "right spot". Jim's Yamaha outboard on his Basscat didn't fair as well, as a piston went vertical and a rod went to the lower unit. I know Jim will be up and running in no time though.
