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!

Eddie Griggs Works the Tide for James River Win


Athens, Al - Eddie Griggs of Richmond, VA weighed in 5 fish weighing 21.02 Pounds to win the Weekend Bass Series Virginia event 2014-07-26 on Chickahominy/James River.
 

Eddie Griggs followed the outgoing tide to put together a winning stringer of bass that secured him a margin of victory of over five pounds,  The 43 year old Richmond Marine Center Triton pro-staffer said all my fish came on a low outgoing tide.  Once the tide started coming back in I was basically done for the day.  The key areas were the grassy deep breaks.  No particular bait was key in that I caught fish on buzz baits, crank baits and big worms.  The bite was right while the tide was going out, letting me catch approximately 30 keepers, but they only came early in the day.  I only hooked one fish after the tide started in.

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."
