The weekend of June 26th and 27th was the West Regional 6 man team event at Lake Erie.  This tournament was held in the Bay.  The fishing was extremely tough and the guys fished hard but finished 7th.  Not quite the results they were looking for, but never the less it was a great time and they all learned a lot about the bay.

July 9th and 10th marked the Mr. Bass West tournament, held at Chautauqua Lake in Jamestown NY.  This is an excellent bass fishery located about 40 east of Lake Erie.  Three of the 5 team members arrived at the lake Tuesday morning to pre fish for 3 days prior to the tournament.  The fish were biting well, on crank baits, senkos, and jigs.  Deep weed edges, points and docks seemed to be the best spots to locate these fish.  Friday morning was the first morning of the tournament, and a front was on its way in, by noon it was raining so hard you couldn’t see 10 feet in front of the boat.  Saturday was much better weather, although fishing after a front is tough as we all know.  At the end of the two day tournament, anglers Brian Spencer finished 6th with a weight of 19.72, Brad Bressler finished 7th with a weight of 18.34 and Rich Wolota finished 11th with a final weight of 12.63.  On the co-angler side of the team Derek Severns finished 7th with a weight of 10.59 and Jeff Spencer finished up 10th with 10.47.  Both Brian and Brad were able to qualify for the PA State Championship from this tournament.  The PA State Championship will be held in October, back at Chautauqua Lake.

July 11th was the first of three District 6 events that the Bass Hounds will be fishing.  This event was held at Chautauqua Lake after the 2 prior days of the Mr. Bass tournament.  Finding and having fish for three days is tough.  This tournament would be a true test of how the week of pre fishing worked out.  Following some of the same patterns but changing up some locations and trying a few new spots lead the team to some good finishes.  Brad Bressler, angler for the Bass Hounds, finished 2nd with 13.25 pounds.  Angler Rich Wolota had 11.38 pounds to finish 3rd.   Angler Brian Spencer had 7.30 pounds to finish 9th.  Co angler Derek Severns finished 2nd on the co anglers side with 9.07 pounds and the lunker of the tournament, a 5.25 smallmouth caught on a Poor Boys ¾ ounce green pumpkin jig.  Jeff Spencer finished 10th on the co angler side with 2.79 pounds.   So the first of three events was a great showing for the Bass Hounds with 2 seconds and a 3rd.  The next District 6 tournament will be on Lake Erie August 8th followed by the Allegheny River tournament at Brady’s Bend August 22nd.

The Bass Hounds would like to take a moment to thank all of their 2010 sponsors because without them none of this would be possible.  A special thanks goes out to Valvoline Oil, Strauss Automotive, Nervous Waters, Metal Menders, Nowak Commercial Refinishes, Poor Boys Baits, Ardent Reels, and Fish Pittsburgh.com.  Please feel free to check out any and all of these companies, mention the Bass Hounds team sent you and they will take care of you.  Support the people and companies that support our sport.  Catch you on the water.

Who is a good candidate for PDR?

This is a preventative measure so that you will not be charged back after the lease inspection is complete. PDR is much more cost effective.
