Lake Istopokga

February 26th. 2011

Spring Is Here!

What a beautiful day to be out fishing with the great club we have. You could not ask for better weather then we had, exept for the early morning fog we encountered. Once the fog lifted and we could see where we were and then determined this was not where we wanted to be the fishing was on.

Mat Sparks and his partner Joe Inserra pre-fished the Friday before and said the bite was on, but they soon found themselves sinking? Seems Mat replaced a pump and something was not quite right, so they had to get to dry land and do some repairs. Well at the end of the tournament, apparently the repairs did not go very well because they had to put the boat on the trailer really fast because it was still leaking.

We had a couple of subs who fished with us. Darrell Paquin fished with Jason ( thanks Jason for your help at weigh in). Josh Acree fished with his wife Seline( thanks Seline for your help taking pictures).  Glenn Wilson fished with Kelly and Dave or Tom Bailey ( sorry dave or tom i am still learning the new members names ) fished with Tony.

We had 11 teams fish and 38 bass brought to the scales. Was 39 but one was courtesy checked and just a little short. Total weight was 99.61 lbs. Every team brought fish to the scales. 4 teams had limits. There were a lot of fish caught by everybody, including a bunch just under the 14″ minimum. Sure beats not catching anything! FWC was there and measured all fish and made their documentations needed.

First Place with 5 bass weighing 21.77lbs goes to Jim and Mike.

Second Place with 5 bass weighing 17.40lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Third Place with 5 bass weighing 10.64lbs goes to Jeff and Mark

Big Bass weighing 7.41lbs goes to Jim and Mike

Congrats To All The Winners!

Our next tournament will be on Lake Tarpon March 26th out of Anderson Park.

2010 Classic is April 9th and 10th. Remember no pre-fishing allowed one week prior to Friday April 8th. Pre-fishing allowed on Friday April 8th. We will be having our meeting Saturday April 9th to vote on the remaining lakes for 2011 and the 2011 Classic lake. Please let me know if you are planning to fish the Classic.
