Lake Reedy

April 24th 2010

Another Windy Day


We had 7 teams fish on this nice windy day. We launched approx. 6:40am and it sure seems like our fishing days go by way too fast. Water level was way up and with the wind blowing Southeast it did not turn off the bite. There were 25 bass brought to the scales with one dead bass and a total weight of 57.61 pounds.

First place with 5 bass and total weight of 15.72lbs goes to Brent and Jeff

Second place with 4 bass and total weight of 13.18lbs goes to Joe and Greg

Third place with 5 bass and total weight of 8.94lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Big Bass goes to Greg and Joe with a nice 7.47 pounder.


Next tournament will be May 22nd at Lake Istokpoga launching out of Hwy.98 ramp. I already have the permits and please remember since this is a permit tournament we CANNOT put our boats on the trailer with bass in the livewells. If the FWC is there to monitor our weigh in they will be very strict on all aspects regarding tournament procedures and Florida fishing regulations.


Hope To See Everybody At The Next Tournament

2009 Classic

April 10th & 11th 2010

On behalf of myself and the members of SPPB I would like to start with thanking all the sponsors for making our raffle a great success. If it were not for their generousity our classic payout would not have been as good as it was. All proceeds go directly to the top three places. Plus you can’t beat all the fun we have during the raffle drawing. Here is a list of the sponsors who contributed to our 2009 Classic.

B&M Sports Supply, Interstate Batteries, Dogfish Tackle, Bett’s Fishing Center,Gambler Lures, V&M / Cyclone Baits, Save Phace, Sentry Fuel, Abe’s Mugs/Keith Burden, Mirro Lure. And a special thanks goes to Phil who coordinated the majority of the donations including the one’s he donated.

So lets get started with the Classic. There were 8 teams signed up to fish the two day event. Most teams pre-fished on Friday to try and locate productive areas. Most caught fish on Friday including a few nice bass weighing between 5 and 7 pounds. Then Saturday arrived, and so did the wind which was blowing 20 knots or better from the N.E. We blasted off at 7:00am and weigh in was at 4:00pm. After day one the results are as follows:

1.) Frank and Colleen with 5 bass weighing 15.59 pounds

2.) Bill and Dave with 5 bass weighing 13.27 pounds

3.) Joe and Greg with 4 bass weighing 10.77 pounds

Saturday night was our meeting and raffle drawing. We voted on the remainder of the lakes and 2010 Classic. Schedule is posted on the web site. We also awarded the 2009 Angler of the Year to Frank and Colleen Mackin. And thanks to Jim Fesperman and Mike Touchton’s idea we presented to Phil a custom rod for all his hard work as past president.

Day two started out windy, but seemed to be not as windy as Saturday. But there were reports of thunderstorms moving in. What is a little rain and lightning anyway?
