Our goal is to provide a fun, competitive and safe environment for you to fish in. We are a team based club and focus our fishing on the bodies of water that make southern New Hampshire a great place to fish for bass.
This year's TOC was another great event and the fish didn't disappoint. We set club records and some very impressive bags got brought to the scales.
Congrats to Tom and Tim Dube for taking home the 2013 Last Cast Club TOC trophies. Tim and Tom had an OK day 1 on a tough(er) day of fishing and then laid waste to the field with a monster bag of fish on Day 2 anchored by a 6.83 beast that came in SECOND for our lunker on Sunday. Their total bag was 28.03. Fantastic job.
Second place went to Rich Metivier and Mark Barron, but the story was really about Day 2. Mark was "sick" and it forced Rich to fish solo. The bite was tough for the on Day 1, just like for everyone else and they had 9.62, so still in it. Rich figured something out and brought a monster bag of 17.47 lbs to the scales - with a 5.55 and another 5+ lber. The total was 27.09 for a very respectable 2nd place. Awesome job.
3rd went to a team that will be joining us a full members this year. They were consistent on both days with 11.25 and 13.04 respectively. No BIG fish, but all solid keepers for a total of 24.29 put Bob Savoie and Steve Jackson into our last TOC paying spot. Great job.
4th place and 3rd for the club was the Defending TOC Champs, Dan Greenwood and Rick Landry. They had 2 solid limits each day, but didn't find the big fish. Still a great finish for our regular season champs.
5th place and 4th for the club was the team of Dennis Rocheford and Mike Zachodny. This team only had 7.76 lbs after Day 1, but found them big on Day 2 with 14.95 and a kicker of 4.67. Nice work.
Coming in 6th and claiming the last club pay-out spot was the team of Scott Doughty and Al DeLeo. They had a less than stellar Day 1 with 8.89 lbs, but found them on Day 2 and bagged 13.29 lbs with a 4.08 smallie.
Our Saturday lunker pool continues to be a good investment. We had 4 different winners this year. Day 1 Lunker smallmouth wen to Bob Savoie and Steve Jackson with a 3.05 beauty. Lunker LM went to Dan Greenwood and Rick Landry with a 3.68 bucketmouth.
Day 2 was a SLUGFEST. We had a 4.67, 5, 5.55, 6.83 lber come to the scales, but none of them could dethrone Rick DeSisto and Mike McCaffrey who brought a 7.52 PIG to the scales. This is a new Last Cast record for a largemouth and will be tough to beat. They had a tough Day 1 (only 5.95 lbs) and were only a .25 out of the club money with their day 2 bag (15.96). Just shows you that fishing both days can pay off. Our lunker smallmouth on Day 2 went to Scott Doughty and Al DeLeo with a beautiful 4.08 smallie. Great work to all and what nice fish.
