    Yes! Please come out and represent! Its a nice lake, there are no sea doos, swimming or anything like that allowed this is a fish only lake so those are not a worry! You can fish by bank or boat, Went out today for a stroll and found some hott spots I believe that will produce fish, Some 32ft and very steap grade up to 3 ft.... Very good I do believe! Hope to see you there!

    Well, William it may be you and me representing at Thom-A-Lex this weekend. Two people can't win three prizes. Anyone else planning to come?

    Thom a lex turned out to be a great tourney with 81 people entered! We all had lots of fun! Jim (Floundahman) here on the forums was one of the great people that also enjoyed the experience. Even though we didnt place in the top 3 it was still a great sucess for a first time tourney the lake has held. Spoke with the warden this morning and he says there is a possibilty that there will be another! Next time lets all try to come out and represent the BOC well!

    Had a great time Saturday night. William is right it was a great group of people. William held third place until the last boat came in with a livewell full of big cats (I believe they took 1st and 2nd). We caught some good eating sized cats and had catfish sandwiches on Sunday. It was great to meet a BOC brother and William is a good one to meet.

    Just an update..Spoke to Slade the Warden and he said they are planning another tourney for September, not sure on date yet though.. He said that there were 39 boats that entered the tourney. Thats not including the bank fishermen. 1st went to a guy in Walkertown with I think a 14 or 15lb Blue and a guy from Stokes county I believe won 2nd and 3rd places. I ended up with 5th place with 8.4 lb Blue, Had a good one pull my 6600 spool out and I missed the hook set:angry:. I'm trying to get a banner or flag designed to fly or hang representing the BOC to get more members as Jim said there wasnt a bad person there! Gotta get my arriators fixed and looking forward to doing some fishing with Jim!

    The lake is between Lexington and Thomasville, It's on Yokley rd. If coming from Thomasville you will turn right at DCCC and that rd will be called old Greensboro rd. and Yokley is about 2 1/2 miles on the left, with the lake being about a quarter mile down there. if from Lexington you'll make a left off of business 85 at DCCC and go the sameway

    I had my fingers crossed that the tournament would be on a day I had nothing to do and I think you guys hit the nail on the head. Is this any individual person tournament or do it go by the boat, if you are in a boat?

    How early do we need to be there to get signed up?

    I'll be fishing with my wife this time. Didn't do so well last time, have to break out the secret weapon. The fish can't resist her either.:wink:
