FLW College Fishing Northern Conference readies for final regular-season tournament at Chautauqua Lake

FLW College Fishing Northern Conference readies for final regular-season tournament at Chautauqua Lake
FLW News Release

CHAUTAUQUA, N.Y. (July 15, 2016) – FLW College Fishing is headed to Chautauqua Lake on July 23 for the third and final regular-season bass-fishing tournament in the Northern Conference. A full field of college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the FLW College Fishing National Championship.

“I’ve got some great memories fishing at Lake Chautauqua,” said former Christopher Newport University angler Cody Griffey, who along with partner Peter Kenny won the FLW College Fishing event on Lake Chautauqua last season. “It was a very fun tournament to fish and my partner and I won by keying in on a specific area. I think either the grass or fishing docks will be the key patterns this year as well.”

Griffey said that a smallmouth pattern in the deeper, northern end of the lake could play a role but it was something that he and his partner Kenny never had materialize.

“We found an area which had three different types of vegetation – milfoil, coontail and eelgrass. That was the key for us that day, and we caught all of our fish very shallow, 1-foot of water or less.”

 “All of our fish that we weighed in last year came on a swimjig,” Griffey continued. “We were rigging it with flukes and paddle-tail swimbaits. I also missed a couple of blowups on a frog, and I think both swimjigs and frogs should be popular baits in this event. I remember that some teams caught some solid limits fishing a Yamamoto Senko as well.

“The winning team will likely weigh in a five-bass limit right around 15 pounds,” Griffey went on to say. “I did miss a big one on the frog last year and that would have put us in the upper teens. The potential for a 20-pound stringer is definitely there.”

Anglers will take off from Long Point State Park, located at 4459 Route 430 in Bemus Point, New York, at 6:30 a.m. EDT Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the State Park beginning at 2:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
