On Satuday, my brother Jon and I fished the NBSFA tournament out of Oromocto, NB. After weeks of hot, dry weather, the weather on Saturday was cloudy, cool and rainy, which seemed to help the fishing. We blasted off and got to the spot we wanted first. Within minutes, we boated a small keeper (chased by a follower), only to find out the livewell pump was not working. While Jon was trying to get some water in the livewell and figure out what was wrong with the pump, I caught a 2.5 lber. Not waiting for Jon to get the net, I hoisted it over the side of the boat, much to Jon's dismay, but we didn't lose it. Within an hour and a half, we had a nice limit of keepers that probably would have went 11 lbs. We finally got the livewell pump working, but did have one good keeper die on us. We culled three of our smallest fish throughout the day. We knew going in that we had a good bag, but were nervous that our dead fish was going to cost us the tournament. Being the last to weigh in, we needed 14.20 less the penalty to take the lead. The weighmaster weighed our fish and annouced our weight at 14.25 lb, less the penalty. We ended up with 13.88, good for first place, our second win in as many weeks. All fish were caught on soft plastics and were caught around structure and in current. The Saint John River is affected by the tide and knowing how the changing conditions change the current and the positioning of the bass is critical on this body of water.
