Harris Chain


We fished the Harris Chain instead of John’s Lake due to there were two other tournaments fishing John’s Lake. When there has to be a change due to any condition the board picks alternate lake that was one of the lakes in the hat when we pick the lakes for the year. July and August are the two hottest months of the year and it sure was hot today. The bass also thought it was too hot to cooperate and the bite was as tough as it gets. Only 5 bass were brought to the scales out of the 7 teams who braved the hot temperatures. 3 teams zeroed.

First Place with 1 bass weighing 2.99 lbs goes to Joe and Greg

Second Place with 2 bass weighing 2.34 lbs goes to Darrell and Jason

Third Place with 1 bass weighing 2.01 lbs goes to Keith and Justin

Big Bass weighing 2.99 lbs goes to Joe and Greg

50/50 winner goes to Greg.   Total To Date for the Classic Fund : $167.00

Congrats to all !

I want to review two issues which was discussed at the last tournament on Reedy. Number one, it was brought up a few times about the first rule on the rules page stating that no guides or professional tournament fishermen are allowed. The members we have to date that do fish the FLW, BFL, BASS or any other trails were members before they started fishing these trails and are Grandfathered in. But the club decided the rule was not necessary so we deleted. Second, the weigh in time is at 2:00 pm and in the rules it states that all teams must be at the scales at 2:00. We do not expect all teams to be standing in line holding their catches, but we do expect for all teams to be back at the ramp, dock, shoreline by 2:00 pm sharp. This does not mean within sight.

Our next tournament is Lake Kissimmee August 23rd, out of the Hwy. 60 ramp

See You At The Ramp

Lake Reedy

June 28th, 2014

First I would like to welcome the new team of Mitch Webb and Pat Martin. My apologies if I spelled your names wrong. I am still trying to read Darrell’s hand writing. And Thank You to Keith for recommending them to our club. John had Bill fish as sub with him. Steve had his son-in-law Chris fish with him since I had a work function I had to go to and it sounds like I may be replaced from all the trash talking from Chris and Steve? From what I heard and reading the weigh in sheet it was a tough hot tournament for most.

First Place with 5 bass weighing 11.87 lbs goes to Scott and Dick

Second Place with 5 bass weighing 11.36 lbs goes to Joe and Greg

Third Place with 3 bass weighing 9.59 lbs goes to Eric and Garry

Big Bass weighing 6.85 lbs goes to Eric and Garry

50/50 winner goes to Keith.  Total 50/50 funds to date for our next classic is $135.00

Congrats to all!

Since I am late on the newsletter, I wanted to let everyone know we have to change the lake for our next tournament. Seems that there are two other clubs fishing John’s Lake too per email from John letting me know. We will be fishing Harris Chain out out Hickory Point July 26th instead. I will email all too.

See You At The Ramp
