Lake June in Winter

October 22nd, 2011

This was the second to last tournament of the 2011 season. The lake was at least 2 feet below normal even with all the rain they got the week before. Then add the cold front that came through with the windy conditions equals a tough day on the water. 5 teams paid their dues to challenge the tough conditions and believe me it was tough. Only 12 bass were brought to the scales with a total weight of 20.75 pounds. I was just glad Steve did not break anything this tournament.

First Place with 5 bass weighing 7.84 lbs goes to Phil and Darrell

Second Place with 3 bass weighing 6.06 lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Third Place with 3 bass weighing 5.27 lbs goes to Frank and Keith

Big Bass weighing 3.75 lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Angler of the Year race is a little closer now with Frank and Keith leading with 262 points and Phil and Darrell behind by 8 points. If Phil and Darrell would have paid for that one tournament they missed they would be in first? Funny how things work sometimes.

The next and last tournament will be November 12th at Lake Tarpon. We will be launching out of Anderson Park at safe sunlight. I am asking all to show up a little early so we can draw the lakes for next year. We feel this will be an easier way to to have our schedule done at one time instead of spreading the picks out over the year. Another option would be for the board to pick the lakes?

The board is looking ahead to the 2012 season and would greatly appreciate all to return. If you know of anyone who would be a good fit to our great club please have them join as well. We started out this year with 14 teams, and due to numerous unforeseen reasons it has dropped. It is time to look ahead to next year and start planning accordingly. Over the years we have decided to accept our club being small, but I feel we can do better. We have adjusted the payout based on participants to ensure a better pay day. When the board hears that the reason a team did not show up to fish is because of the low attendance and payout, this is contributing to the issue at hand and is a little frustrating to us all in the club who contribute their time and effort. Yes I am discouraged but feel we have a great core group of friends and fishermen and I am looking forward to 2012.

Lake Toho

9-24-11

First of all I would like to give my condolences to Phil who’s sister had passed just before tournament day.

Seems the fishing was a little tough for the six teams who participated on this September day. Just ask Steve who continues to be paying his dues from the last tournament. His motor decided it did not want to run anymore and had a tough time getting back to the ramp. He is now in the market for a motor. At least he did not break any of my stuff.

From the six teams there were 18 bass weighed in with a grand total of 47.13 pounds.

First Place with 5 bass weighing 14.60lbs goes to Malcolm and Josh

Second Place with 4 bass weighing 13.88lbs goes to Frank and Keith

Third Place with 3 bass weighing 7.40lbs goes to Darrell and Pops ( Frank’s Dad who fished with Darrell )

Big Bass weighing 4.87lbs goes to Frank and Keith

Next tournament is October 22nd at Lake June in Winter

Hope To See You All At The Ramp
