Top 5 Update

Mon, May 30, 2016

Although we have slowed our roll, the update streak continues with a trio of bass to bump the weights of two anglers, one of whom resumes the Top 5 lead.

Mark Bass

Weight: 5-2
Angler: Mark Balbinot
Date: May 7
Location: Fulton Co. Camping Area – Little Sister Lake
Lure: Weightless Wave Worm Tiki Stick (Watermelon Red Flake)
Structure: Stump with about 3’ of water
Angler Comments: My first fish of the day was this 5-2 that caught me by surprise because it’s been a quite a while since I have caught anything over 3 lbs. in this lake. Maybe it is on the comeback and I need to fish this lake again
.
Top 5 Weight: 26-6 (5-15, 5-8, 5-2, 4-15, 4-14) culls a 4-12
(Note: Looks like I previously made a calculation error of one ounce on Mark’s catch prior to this cull, which has now been corrected.  Sometimes those pounds and ounces get the best of me; whatever happened to that Metric System thing anyway?)

Troy Bass

Weight: 3-9 (19”)
Angler: Troy Jackson
Date: May 22
Location: Mautino State Fish & Wildlife Area
Lure: Senko wacky rig (green pumpkin with black flake)
Structure: Laydown
Angler Comments: My first quality fish of the day came a half hour after a disappointing break-off of a big fish.  Always tough when you lose a good one but this one definitely helped to ease the pain…and set a new lake record besting a 2-2 from last year.

Troy Bass

Weight: 2-12 (18.5”)
Angler: Troy Jackson
Date: May 22
Location: Mautino State Fish & Wildlife Area
Lure: Senko wacky rig (green pumpkin with black flake)
Structure: Logs
Angler Comments: A second nice bass only fifteen minutes after the previous catch further lifted my spirits in dealing with the inevitable “one that got away.”  The pair of new additions also give my limit a substantial boost of just over three pounds.

Top 5 Weight: 17-1 (5-9,3-9,3-6,2-12,1-13) culls 1-11 and 1-9

Way to go, Mark, glad to hear one of your fishing holes may be on the mend.  And I must say that I am also happy to make a couple contributions of my own.  Had to construct and submit this update a little early so hoping that the Memorial Day weekend may bring a few more fish to the scales for next week’s update.  Good luck and talk to you later.  Troy
