Friday Classic Team Trail Webster Lake 5/17/19
Back to Back
This has been far from a normal spring. More than a month ago the water temperature in most of the lakes in Massachusetts were in the mid-50s. On May 17th Webster Lake never went above 57. On a lake that is probably the most famous spawn lake in Mass, both the LM and SM were either off beds, still hadn’t “come up” or were totally confused as to what to do. That said, one team figured it out again and put together back to back wins on this trail that leads to The Classic Championship on Lake Hartwell.
On the first Friday Classic Team Trail on Santuit, where most caught a limit, Randy Phillips and Wayne Marquis caught just enough to win. On Webster Lake this past Friday Randy and Wayne weighed in 12.76 pounds, throwing jerk and chatter baits. Josh Cotier and Chip Servant took second with 10.06. Wayne and Randy had lunker: 3.83 lbs.
This isn’t normal for Webster Lake. I have seen over the years bags that averaged 4 pounds per. It was off and on rain all day and there was never a peak at the sun. Would it have been different if the sun was out all day? “It Is What It Is.”
