Delaware River Results

As predicted and expected, the NJBF’s last point event of the season proved to be extraordinarily tough. Fishing on the Delaware River in the summer is the ultimate challenge in both finding and catching bass. These factors led to a close and tough event, but, as always, some anglers found a way to have a successful day.

Winning the event in the Boater Division was the NJBF’s most decorated angler, Rich Schneidereit. Schneidereit, of the Clearwater Bassmasters, put his nose to the grindstone and brought one of the two five-fish limits to the scales. His 6.86 pounds was enough to win the event by a comfortable margin.

Second place in the Boater Division went to Derick Olson of the Quickfire Bassmasters with 5.61 pounds, followed close behind by Darren Pincus of the Blazin Bass with 5.41 pounds. The biggest fish in the Boater Division was a 2.73 pounder caught by Scott Weiland.

Taking the victory in the Co-Angler Division was Chris Miler of the Warren County Bassmasters. Miller had four fish that weighed 6.28 pounds. Following in second place was Mike Rinaldi who had three fish weighing 5.51 pounds. Third place in the Co-Angler Division went to Brian Wisniewski of the Clearwater Bassmasters, with three fish weighing 4.05 pounds. The Co-Angler lunker, a 4.00 pound largemouth, was caught by Mike Keller of Blazin Bass.
