Tough conditions at the District 12 Semi-National on the Mon River in Fairmont, WV this weekend!
Ideally, September is not the best time to bass fish in West Virginia waters but given the Mon River was blown out with high water just 3 weeks earlier made it more difficult.
The water was stained, and the water temperature dropped 6 degrees from official practice to the actual tournament days.
To make things worse, we experienced a 2-hour fog delay on Saturday (with fishermen losing the early morning bite) and had rainy, wet conditions on Sunday morning.
Only 3 fishermen had limits both tournament days (out of 76 anglers).
Congratulations to Chad Brinegar and Rick Mills for being the top 2 boaters and Trey Anderson and Chris Mills being the top 2 co-anglers and moving on to next year’s National Championship.
