Lake Tarpon

March 26th, 2011

Another nice Florida spring day with early morning fog just like the last tournament except we had lots of green slim all over the lake and the bite was not as good as the last tournament, but it sure beats work.

We had 9 teams and two subs fish the tournament. Sub Steve Swauger fished with Joe Inserra and sub Mike Ross fished with Mike Taylor.

There were a lot of small bass caught that did not measure and it seemed like all the ones that did measure were all the same size except for a few larger ones. We had 34 bass brought to the scales with 3 dead ones with a total of 61.50 lbs.


First Place with 5 bass weighing 14.88 lbs. goes to Mike Bard and Bob Bennett

Second Place with 5 bass weighing 10.04 lbs. goes to Frank Mackin and Keith Burden

Third Place with 5 bass weighing 8.31 lbs. goes to Joe Inserra and sub Steve Swauger

Big Bass weighing 5.54 lbs. goes to Mike Bard and Bob Bennett

Congrats To All The Winners!

OK lets talk CLASSIC!

There has been lots of concern and discussion on the water levels at the Big “O”.

We have been monitoring as best as possible and we will not change the Classic location. All members who are going to fish the Classic need to be careful when out on the water! The water level is down about 2.5 ‘ from last year. AND REMEMBER NO PRE-FISHING ONE WEEK PRIOR TO FRIDAY APRIL 8th! If anybody needs a room contact Phil because he has an extra room set aside.

Classic fees are $70.00 per boat. We have a two day big bass payout.

See You At Okeechobee
