Lake Kissimmee

January 26th, 2013

It was nice seeing everyone who showed up to fish this new 2013 tournament season! The weather was awesome but the bass had different ideas. The bite was not as good as the weather, at least where we all fished. Sometimes it just doesn’t make sense and that is why it is called fishing, not catching. I would like to say THANK YOU to Keith and Justin who rescued Steve and I on the way home. I had a trailer tire shred on I-4 just before malfunction junction. Then my spare was flat. Then Keith and Justin stopped and Keith let us borrow his spare tire.

Mike and Matt (Jr.)  had mechanical problems out on the lake but were able to fix their motor. I think Matt is jinxed? Matt said he blew his motor recently.

We had 8 teams fish the tournament. Eric had Brent fish with him as a sub. Only 17 bass were brought to the scales and there were 2 limits. Steve and I had no fish at 1:55 and we were still casting near the ramp. We caught our only bass then with 2 minutes to go. It was nice not to zero on the first tournament and turns out it was the big bass of the tournament. You just never know. That is a perfect example why not to give up.

First Place with 5 bass weighing 10.80 lbs goes to Eric and Brent

Second Place with 5 bass weighing 9.25 lbs goes to Rick and Blanche

Third Place with 3 bass weighing 4.64 lbs goes to Joe and Greg

Big Bass weighing 3.58 lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Our next tournament is February 23rd on the Butler Chain. Mike Touchton mentioned he heard the lake is really low? We will be checking and keep everybody posted. Also if you have not made your reservation for the Classic you may want to do soon.
