Jamie Hartman overwhelms the competition on Oneida Lake 

Athens, Al - Jamie Hartman of Newport NY weighed in 5 Fish weighing in at 21.49 pounds to win the Weekend Bass Series New York event 2014-07-26 on Oneida.

I started the day fishing some points that I know about that has grass on the sides of them. There isn't a lot of grass this year in the lake. The fish seem to be relating to that type of structure. I had my limit by 9:30 this morning, and was trying to cull up the rest of the day. I was able to cull out about 3 times. I did catch quite a number of fish today. That is the second time this year that spot has paid off for me. 

Kenny Garippa from Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania finishes in second place with a total weight of 18.44 lbs.  Also targeting points with rock piles, throwing a senko most of the day.  However, he would not share the color!  

In third place, Jason Chier from Binghamton, NY with a weight of  16.54 lbs.  I have been fishing this lake for a quite a while and this year I have been able to fish it about a dozen times.  I have about four decent spots on this lake and I was able to catch my fish using a drop shot and dragging a tube.  I love fishing top water however with the algae bloom that is going on I was not able to fish top water this tournament.

1 Jamie Hartman 5 21.49 250 $2136
