Raritan Valley kicked off the season April 29th on the Northern Chesapeake Bay. Hopes were high for pre spawn giants that this place is known for but as always a major cold front moved in the night before and had the fish in a non-cooperative mood. First and third place both came from Furnace Bay with Big Ben weighing in 3 fish for 6.5 lbs for the victory. Ben worked both a drop shot and a rattle trap in 3 feet of water with some emergent grass holing the fish. Second place was taken by Artie V. breaking in the new Ranger from the North East working docks with jigs.

Stop number 2 was Manasquan Reservoir this past Saturday and once again the field was greeted with 50 degrees and pouring rain.. This time the spawn was well on its way and for the anglers who made right decision to head left out of the ramp the bite was on first thing in the morning. Once again Big Ben took the victory with 5 largemouth totaling 13.11lbs. Ben worked a zoom centipede on the drop shot both super shallow as well as in the flooded timber for his catch. Second place went Mike Cocca in his debut as a boater with 5 fish for 13.7 lbs. Mike also worked a drop shot with a Don Iovino worm.. 3rd Place was Dominic with an impressive bag of 13.4 lbs. all on the jig.
