Beach Pond State Team open results
« on: October 03, 2009, 07:04:04 PM »
Thank you to all 20 Teams who braved the elements today to fish the RI TBF State Team Open at Beach Pond. We had some big fish brought to the scales today and 1 fish that was less than a pound from breaking the RI State record!! The fish was caught by TBF Vice president John Candelmo who volunteered to take the camera man from fishing the Ocean State so they could film the event. The fish weighed in at 9.44lbs!!! We also has a 7.43, a 6.48 and 2 5.40's! Thanks to the entire State Team and all the anglers today! Here are the top 5 finishes:

1st place   Molineau and Molineau with 4 fish for 13.33 with a 5.40 kicker
2nd place  Mcgahan and Luman with 5 fish for 12.74 with Lunker 7.43lbs!
3rd place  Proia and Warhurst with 5 fish for 11.12 with a 6.48lb kicker
4th place  Balasco and St Angelo 5 fish for 5.66
5th place Verry and Castro 3 fish for 5.10

Will post pics soon

I will tell you that a senko was probably never used in this entire event. This was a deep bite. 20-30ft. Most Anglers were dropshotting. The winds were humming and the rain was sideways. I did get a couple over 25ft of water with a 1/2 ounce spinnerbait though!!

I just went back and read the stats again. It's pretty clear that some people had nailed down a pattern, while others caught typical Beach Pond rats. If you look at the 1st through 3rd place finishers and the weights, there is a massive difference when you look at 4th place, when compared to the top 3 spots!

Are you kidding me a flipping tube on a drop shot, Please tell or inspire Me to what made you tie something like that on !! I understand the drop shot I have used it for a number of  limits but never heard of tying on a tube.
    Good on Ya, I'll try it sometime! maybe I'll catch a 9 1/2 lb'r !!

I've heard rumors that most, if not all of the big fish caught in this tourney died because of being caught in deep water.

Does anyone know if this is true?

Tournaments run on lakes like this where fish are being caught in 25 - 30 feet of water should have people on hand who are able to fizz the fish to prevent them from dying. Did this not take place here?

Curt, I weighed all the fish that day and all fish survived except the 9.44. The 9.44 was not in the tournament. We strive to keep fish alive and whoever is spreading this rumor either was not there or just wants to stir things up. I can asure you that the 9.44 was the only fish that did not make it, but it was not in the event either. Not all fish were caught in 30fow. In fact in the top 3 places I think the only bag that was caught that deep was the 3rd place bag (all survived) and maybe some of the second place bag who also had Lunker of 7.5 which survived as well. As far as the de-fizzer, we should get some education on it but recently in a huge event up-state NY (Champlain) where the device was used they found about 150 floaters after the event that arose some questions on the issue. The way to go now is the release cage that seems to be the thing to use. Again, if any has any questions as to how many fish survived at any event we run please call me direct, This is bad press that is also false information. So again, as far as the event goes we had a 100% success rate on fish survival. I also sent my info in to DEP. Thanks for raising the question.
