Lake Tarpon


First I would like to send out some healing vibes to our club member and friend Dick Fletcher who has been out sick now for a few weeks and counting. I spoke with him the other day and he still has a few weeks to go before he can return and fish, but he told me he will be back soon.

Next I would like to welcome the new team of Charles Pearson Jr. and Timothy Solomon. Glad to have you with SPPB!

From what everyone heard about the fishing conditions on Lake Tarpon, it was going to be a tough tournament. They were not kidding. Lots of small bass were caught and a few nice keepers also, but not like we all want the fishing to be like. Out of twelve teams only three limits were brought to the scales. I would like to pass on a message from Joe and Greg who would like to thank Matt for his help Saturday morning before we started the tournament. Joe had some battery issues and Matt was kind enough to jump on board and correct the wiring on his batteries. Thanks Matt!

First Place with 4 bass weighing 12.71 lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Second Place with 5 bass weighing 12.30 lbs goes to Troy and Adam

Third Place with 5 bass weighing 10.17 lbs goes to Darrell and Jason

Big Bass weighing 8.38 lbs goes to Mike and Steve

Congrats to all.

Our next tournament is May 21st. Yes it is the third Saturday. The fourth Saturday is Memorial Day Weekend. Walk in Water launching from public ramp. Please remember this is a managed lake and for the solo teams you will only be allowed to weigh in three bass.

See You At The Ramp,
