August 7-10, 2014 The seventh tournament of the Elite Series season, after a small hiatus, will get back on the fishing trail once again for some ‘Classic’ berths at a fishery that is not necessarily known for its tournament fishing. It’s been eight years since Bassmaster took on that famous crossing the Delaware River as a tournament host destination.
The top 100 Pros are scouting new territory waters and which weapons to use in their bass fishing artillery The fishery is working on building up its fine stable of bass with bass fishing on a ‘catch and release’ basis only April 12 through June 14. Twelve-inches is the limit with a five fish combined total for boating fishing anglers. According to CBSlocal what we don’t know is that the Delaware River is full of bass.
Plugged, fluked and topwaters on the grass is the claim to catching the local bass right now “Jersey Mike” Ianconelli is fishing his territory and picked for the ‘backyard bonus.’ According to the Bassmaster site 62-percent of the fans are voting Mike to win. Mike Ianconelli has come in this season and has fished well.
Every single day of the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament on the Delaware, the Pros will launch from the Frankford Arsenal Boat Launch at 5701 Tacony Avenue at 6:15 AM. The weigh-in will take place every single day of the tournament at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing 211 S. Columbus Blvd. starting at 3:15 PM. Concerts and free family-friendly fishing expo with games, give-aways, demonstrations, and boat demos from the top boat manufacturers plus Bassmaster Elite Series merchandise for sale at the B.A.S.S. booth, are on the fishing agenda for the bass fishing weekend celebration.
