When It's Your Day It's Your Day!


Athens, Al - Richard Newton of Stafford, VA weighed in 5 fish tipping the scales at 16.67 pounds to win the Weekend Bass Series Maryland event 2014-07-19 on Potomac.
 

"I guess when it's your day it's just your day.  After a month of having these fish located all the conditions were just right to finally do well in the area I was fishing.  The tide and cloud cover made for perfect conditions to catch numerous big fish in the area I was fishing.  All my fish came on topwater frog baits.  Unfortunately, I am having issues with one of my livewells and by 9 AM I noticed my fish were is serious distress.  I decided to call it a day and called the tournament director to arrange for an early weigh in.  By the time I got back to the launch area my three smaller fish had died and one of my big fish was in trouble.  After only fishing for three hours I was extremely fortunate that my weight held up for the win."

The Stafford Virginia antique dealer weighed in five fish that weighed 18.17 pounds before penalties, including two fish over six pounds.

"I try to fish the Potomac at least once a week but did not practice specifically for this event.  I figured to adapt to whatever my paired partner was doing and that turned out to be key to catching these fish.  At our first fishing location we weere missing fish on frogs. But, there was ample water above the grass so I decided to switch to topwater baits with treble hooks.  My fish all came on Rico topwater baits."
