The fourth event of the 2013 New Jersey Bass Federation was a tense and closely-contested affair . . . if you were fishing for second through sixth place in the Boater Division. Otherwise, the event, held under overcast and rainy conditions on July 28, 2013 at Lake Hopatcong was an unadulterated blowout in both the Boater and Co-Angler Divisions.

The third event of the 2013 New Jersey Bass Federation left no doubt that the State’s largest lake is alive and well. This event, held on Lake Hopatcong on June 30, 2013 was noteworthy for good numbers of fish passing across the tournament scales. Additionally, while the winner of the Boater Division did so with relative ease, the rest of the Boater Division and the Co-Angler Division proved that every fraction of an ounce counts.

For those not from the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast, to hear that largemouth bass are caught in good numbers from the Northern Chesapeake Bay (also known colloquially as the Susquehanna Flats) often comes as a surprise. The river system, which is more commonly well known for its brackish/salt water and abundance of blue claw crabs and striped bass, has quietly become one of the premier largemouth bass fisheries in the area. It has come a very long way from 1991, when the Bassmasters Classic was held here and the tournament winning three day weight was only 33 pounds 2 ounces. Rather, in the past 10 years, the size of the fish in the system has exploded and it is commonplace for events that are held there to have winning weights for one day events exceeding 20 pounds. In fact, the system has produced several of the top all-time New Jersey Bass Federation tournament weights, including the previous best one day weight of 23.40 pounds set in 2005. However, at the Federation’s second event of the 2013 season, held on June 2, 2013, that record was eclipsed by the winner of the Boater Division. Also, some other big weights crossed the scales to produce another highly successful and competitive Federation event. Read the rest of this entry »
