The New Jersey Bass Federation’s second point event of the 2022 season was a two-day tournament held on Connecticut’s Candlewood Lake. Candlewood is one of the best fisheries in the Northeast and is one of the few places you can catch largemouth and smallmouth bass on back-to-back casts. The tournament turned out to be a close affair and the most consistent anglers came out on top.
The Boater Division winner was Scott Weiland. Weiland was the most consistent angler over the two days as he posted 33.05 total pounds for his best 10 fish. He was followed by Mike McMahon who also had two excellent weights but fell just short with 31.49 pounds. Finishing in third place with a big day two comeback was Nick Angiulo with 30.07 pounds. The big fish in the Boater Division was caught by Greg Del Russo who weighed in a 5.69 pound largemouth on Day 1.
The Co-Angler Division was won in a landslide by Joe Sodora. Sodora had an impressive 21.41 pounds for his best 6 fish, easily taking the top spot by nearly 4 pounds.
