Winter Haven Chain

Sept. 25th, 2010


The Race Gets Tighter

With two tournaments left the Angler of the Year race just got a lot tighter. Second place is only 8 points behind and third place is 10 points behind. Fourth place is 16 points behind. And if the first place team could catch any fish the last three tournaments we wouldn’t be having this discussion. It would be even closer if Steve and Mike did not weigh in one bass they caught at 1:00pm.

Now onto the tournament. I do not think anybody will be voting for this lake for some time. Fishing was tough for just about everyone. Only one limit was brought to the scales. And only 5 teams brought fish to the scales.


First Place with 4 bass weighing 12.97lbs. goes to Joe and Greg.

Second Place with 5 bass weighing 12.22lbs. goes to Mike and Tommy who subbed for Jim.

Third Place with one bass weighing 3.82lbs. goes to Phil and Darrell.

Big Bass goes to Phil and Darrell with 3.82lbs.

Congrats To All!

I would like to review and update the Sub Rules. Each team is allowed to have two subs during the tournament season. If a team needs more than two the sub must join the club. As to date here are the teams who have had subs and current status.

Boat # 1)   One sub used this year.

Boat # 3)   New team member joined club to fish tournament season

Boat # 5)   Two subs used. Sub will need to join if needed.

Boat # 9)   Two subs used. Sub will need to join if needed.

Our next tournament will be October 23rd at June in Winter    County Park Ramp.


Hope To See All At Next Tournament

Lake Walk-in-Water

August 28th, 2010

To begin I would like to welcome two subs who fished with us. Matt Sparks who fished with John Fugate and Bill Mackin who fished with his brother Frank Mackin. Yes Frank was lucky enough to adjust his work schedule to come fish.

We had 8 teams show up to brave another hot summer day of fishing. At least there was plenty of water and we did not get rained on. The wind sure did pick up mid to late morning which is always fun to deal with, along with lots of rain prior to tournament day usually causes a slow bite.

There was 24 bass brought to the scales weighing 53.92 pounds total.

First place with 5 bass and a total weight of 14.24 lbs goes to Godwin and Glenn.

Second place with 4 bass and a total of 13.69lbs goes to Phil and Darrell.

Third place with 5 bass and a total weight of 10.13lbs goes to Frank and Bill.

Big Bass weighing 7.41lbs goes to Phil and Darrell.

Congrats to all the winners!

Our next tournament with be at the Winter Haven Chain. We will be launching out of William G. Roe Park on Lake Shipp. Tournament date is Sept. 25th.


Hope To See You All At The Ramp
