JIM COLEMAN

Wins the ABA AFT Division 5 Championship

The weather was almost perfect for this event and was contested on 2 bodies of water. 

On day #1, at Long Pond, Freetown, MA, Jim Coleman led all anglers w/a 5 fish limit at 10.75 lbs. anchored w/a 3.69 lbs. largemouth bass. We had a total of 29 bass weighed in w/a combined weight at 52.36 lbs.for an average weight per fish at 1.81 lbs.

 Day # 2 was contested at South Watuppa Pond, Fall River, MA & once again the weather was perfect but the weights were not as good as just 18 bass were weighed in w/a combined weight at 36.76 lbs. for an average weight per bass at 2.04 lbs. It was a close call, at the weigh in, as Darryl Sampson challenged Jim Coleman's day # 1 weight and came in w/10.09 lbs. It was close at the weigh in & Jim's 2 day weight topped Darryl's weight by 4 1/4 ozs. The weights were as follows: Jim had 16.84 lbs. & Darryl had 16.58 lbs. Whew! I know Jim was sweating that out. By the way, Darryl was awarded the big bass of the championship w/a 4.44 lbs. big fish.

Our congratulations go out to Jim for his outstanding effort! This was his first ever 2-day championship win. Way to go Mr. Champion!
