Lake Rousseau


Rumor had it that this tournament was going to be tough due to all the weed spraying and all the rain we have been getting, but I do not think anybody thought it would be as tough as it was. The teams that were able to pre-fish the weeks before reported lots of small bass being caught with a few nice ones as well. Mike and Matt pre-fished Thursday and Friday before the tournament and told us all it was not good at all. The hydrilla and lily pads were covered with this slim from the spraying and it was tough to fish without getting slim all over your bait. Out of 7 teams only 7 bass were brought to the scales. Lots of little bass were caught, but the keeper bass was hard to find. We had two subs fish with us. George fished with Rob and Tommy fished with Rick.

First Place with 3 bass weighing 7.23 lbs goes to Eric and Gary

Second PLace with 2 bass weighing 5.53 lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Third Place with 1 bass weighing 2.55 lbs goes to Rick and Tommy

Big Bass weighing 2.88 lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Next tournament is August 24th at Lake Arbuckle. The ramp is at Lake Arbuckle Campground.

2600 Lake Arbuckle Rd, Frostproof, FL 33843. Steve called and we will confirm what time the gate opens.
