    Well Folks,It was RAINING Today:crazy:,but what a great time we had,The rain didnt seem to hurt the turnout too bad,we were greatly surprised again,It was an awesome turnout as a matter of fact,We were hoping to bust the 30 boat mark this time and we would have very well done that if not for the rain and a few being out of town.
    We had 48 participants and 23 boats total show up:wink:Awesome folks for the weather we had.Man it was wet and windy but it didnt stop some of Waterees big bruisers from showing up,the bite was good for alot of teams,I didnt get a total of all fish weighed but I did not hear of any boats getting skunked.The anchor biye and the drift bite seemed to be pretty much equal today in terms of the amount of fish caught,fish were caught on a wide variety of baits.
    Now down to the Business end:
    Bobby and Scott Miller put on another fine show today,these guys are always in the money it seems,They got 1st with a 3 fish total of 92lbs and big fish for the tourney of 50.5lbs which was caught at 2:45,15 minutes before end.
    Dean Birch and Seth Williams come up 2nd with 72 lbs,and Marty and Jeff Green came in 3rd with 67.5 lbs.

    We wanna thank everyone for showing up today in a whole lot less than stellar conditions,but it was another great show by some fine participants,look foward to next one already,here is a rundown of the top 6 spots and a few pics,Thanks again Guys.


    1st-Bobby and Scott Miller 92 lbs $480 and Big Fish 50.5 lbs $220
    2nd-Dean Birch and Seth Williams 72 lbs $280
    3rd-Marty and Jeff Green 67.5 lbs $190
    4th-Clay,David,Larry Henderson and Gary Morton 66 lbs
    5th-Rodger Taylor 61 lbs
    6th-Mark Stanley and Jimmy Morton 51 lbs

    As I sit here in the Las Vegas airport in shorts and 70 degree weather, I almost caught a chill looking at those pictures from the tournament!! :smile2:

    Another fine catch of fish folks. Like I said before, when you get that many catmen out on the water someone will find some whoppers no matter how bad the bite is. :wink:

    Congrats to the winners and those that placed!!!:tounge_out:

    Marty and Jeff thanks for hosting the series. I know there is lot of work involved to make it possible for a tournament before and after the event is done. You and Jeff did a good job on the water fishing today.

    Well done to all who had the grit to tough it out! I hope I can get my enclosure done sooner, rather than later. Yesterday on the river here was rather miserable. :sad2:

    This was our first time fishing with these guys. Myself and screaminclickersc had a great time even with the nasty weather. We were able to catch a few fish and even got a new avatar out of it, a 41.5 lb blue. The event seemed to be well run from start to finish. Can't wait to do it again.
