East Lake Toho

November 10th, 2012

Last Tournament for 2012

What a battle for angler of the year it was! It was down to two teams fishing for the anglers of the year trophy. Keith and Justin were ahead of Darrell and Brandon by 15 points. Brandon could not fish so Darrell had to get sub at the last second. He found Glenn Wilson who used to fish with us. It was really nice to see Glenn again. 5 teams showed up to fish and the bite was slow and slower. No limits were brought in and one team zeroed. Keith and Justin could not catch one keeper and the race got a lot closer. Darrell and his sub Glenn had two bass to weigh in. Keith and Justin were a bit nervous at weigh in, but they still pulled out a victory for angler of the year, winning by 8 points. Darrell and Glenn just needed a nice kicker and a first place win to take over first place? Oh well, maybe next year. Team Rick and Blanche had other ideas and just wanted to take all of our money again for the second tournament in a row.

First Place with 3 bass weighing 6.17 lbs goes to Rick and Blanche

Second Place with 3 bass weighing 5.17lbs goes to Greg and Tom

Third Place with 2 bass weighing 3.33lbs goes to Darrell and Glenn

Big Bass weighing 2.73lbs goes to Rick and Blance


After the weigh in the club met to discuss the 2013 season and the 2012 Classic.

The Classic will be the second weekend in April 2013 on Okeechobee out of Clewiston. Saturday April 13th and Sunday April 14th to be exact. And pre-fishing on Friday April 12 only. No pre-fishing one week prior to Friday April 12th.

We also drew the lakes for 2013 and I will post accordingly after we review the other clubs schedules.

Winter Haven Chain

October 27th, 2012

8 teams braved the windy conditions from Hurricane Sandy to fish the second to last tournament of 2012.  Keith showed off his new boat and passed out flyers on a new company starting in November 2012 called Reel Deal Outdoors, Inc. a division of B&M Sports Supply. They will service and repair all types of reels, fishing poles and trolling motors.  And being a member of SPPB discounts will be offered.

Now on to the great windy day of fishing we had. There were 2 subs who fished with us. Tom Pridham fished with Greg DeRosa and Brent Kirkendall fished with Eric Petersen. 20 bass were brought to scales and the bite was slow for most. Only one limit was caught.
