South Lafourche Bass Masters complete 2018 season

South Lafourche Bass Masters complete 2018 season

Another year is “in the books”, and for the South Lafourche Bassmasters 2018 was unlike any other.

Third-year member Quintin Gondran of Raceland did what was thought to be impossible, running away with Angler of the Year by way of a perfect score.

By winning six out of the year’s twelve monthly tournaments, Gondran finished with 300 points—something never done before in the club’s history.

An avid hunter, Gondran fished only the months of March through October, taking six firsts, two seconds and one third-place finish.

While leaving the other club members in his wake, Quintin weighed in a maximum of five bass in each of his nine tournaments, ringing up 112.86 total pounds and averaging 12.54 pounds per tournament.

He also caught lunker bass in four of those tournaments.

In one stretch of tournaments, August 18th in Des Allemands, September 15th in Amelia and October 13th in Houma, Quintin weighed fifteen bass that totaled 43.79 pounds.

Still scratching their heads were the other “top six” finishers, Chad Colombel, Terry Cheramie, Buster Avera, Justin Pitre and Matt Cheramie.

Matt Cheramie also had Lunker of the Year with a beautiful 6.27 lb. bass caught in January out of Cannon’s Landing.

Congratulations to Quintin and all the members of the South Lafourche Bass Masters for a great year.
