Lake Henderson

7-24-10

First of all I would like to welcome our new member Glenn Wilson who will be fishing with Godwin since it seems Mike Taylor will be out for a little while. Again we all wish a speedy recovery to Mike and hope he can join us soon.

Second and most disturbing we had no limits brought to the scales for the second tournament in a row? I know it has been extremely hot, and then add a tropical depression, full moon and a new lake we have not fished. It is nice to have a new lake to try and all seemed to like the lake layout and structures we fished, but it was definately a challenge. And to think Phil accused me of picking this lake because he thought I knew it like the back of my hand. Even though I explained it has been 10 plus years since I fished he thought I was playing my trump card. Steve and I zeroed and had no keeper fish. So much for our trump card. We caught a lot of small bass and from what I heard so did everyone else. Just could not get the big fish bite. Heard a few big ones were hooked, but the big fish won.

Mike Touchton brought a sub to fish with him so I would like to say thanks to Tommy Ziessman for fishing with our club. He informed me he has been freshwater fishing twice. Once was on Friday 7-23-10 to pre-fish and the second was on tournament day. After the tough day we had it might be the last time he freshwater fishes.

There were a whopping total of 9 bass brought to the scales with total weight of 15.53lbs.

First Place with 3 bass and total weight of 5.73lbs goes to Mike Touchton and Tommy Ziessman

Secon Place with 2 bass and total weight of 3.94lbs goes to Phil and Darrell

Third Place with 2 bass and total weight of 2.90lbs goes to Malcolm amd Josh

Big Bass weighing in at 2.68lbs goes to Phil and Darrell

Congrats to all!

Next tournament will be on August 28th at Lake Walk in Water

Hope To See You All There!

LAKE TOHO

June 26th, 2010

 

First of all I would like to pass on some bad news about one of our long time members. Paul Darr passed away last month after a long battle with cancer. He will be missed by many.

Second of all Mike Taylor has been ill and will probably miss a few tournaments. I know we all wish him a speedy recovery.

Now on to the tournament on Lake Toho. We had 7 teams show up to fish on a hot June day during a full moon night. Turns out the lock was also closed for repairs so we had to fish Toho only. There were 15 bass brought to the scales with a total weight of 34.89 pounds.

1st Place with 4 bass and total weight of 9.45 lbs goes to Godwin and his sub Glen.

2nd Place with 3 bass and total weight of 8.50 lbs goes to Mike & Steve.

3rd Place with 3 bass and total weight of 7.75 lbs goes to Jim & Mike.

Our next tournament will be July 24th on Crooked Lake launching at Bob’s Landing. Remember there is a ramp fee. I think it is $7.00. I will call ahead to confirm and make sure there are no other tournaments scheduled.

Congrats to all the winners and THANKS to all the members who showed up to fish!

 

See You Next Tournament
