    The Catawba Catfish Club had its 1st Tournament of the year today on Lake Wateree.22 bone chillin degrees greeted 26 boats and 54 participants for the 7:00am blast off.We were running a little late getting started with only 2 ramps and 26 boats trying to get launched but we managed pretty well.It was a cold ride for everyone to their favorite fishing spots.A swirling wind picked up later in the morning and made a mess of alot of folks tactics but as always you will have your folks that adapt and overcome some bad conditions.When we all gathered at 3:30pm for the weigh in,Team Smackdown had came to Wateree for their 1st tournament and pretty much blitzed the field with a whopping 90.5 3 fish total,they even culled 2 fish at the weigh in over 25lbs,a great effort indeed for those guys.Their big fish for the day was 38.5 lbs and good enogh for 2nd place in the big fish pot.The big fish for the day was caught by the team of Ron Baker/Rick Jackson with a great 41lb blue We appreciate the good showing today and was nice meeting the many new faces in the crowd.Sorrry to say SCCatfishing[David Young} and Harper81{Bill Harper} showed up and were unfortunatly unable to fish because of motor problems,tough luck guys and hope you will come back again.Here is the results and a few pics of the day:
    1st-90.5 lbs Team Smackdown{Bruce Edmunds,Steve Edmunds,Doug Crawford[pop pop]}---$520

    2nd-52lbs Bobby and Scott Miller----$330

    3rd-41lbs Ron Baker and Rick Jackson---$210 and $200 Big Fish Pot Winner{20 teams entered}

    4th-40.5lbs Cary Vandenbrocke and Matt Barrett

    5th-38.5lbs Johnny Woodward and Buddy Cole

    6th-32lbs Jeff Green Robby Ayers

    And alot of other fish caught by the other competitors

The Catawba Tourneys are top notch! :wink: Marty and Jeff do and outstanding job and the participants are all about sportsmanship as I talked with plenty today, beacause Pop Pop likes people and likes to talk!:big_smile:

    Congrats Pop Pop . That was a great day for you and Team Smackdown. I had fun even though my fish didn't want to cooperate and take a little boat ride. I must say that is was one of the best turnouts for a local tournament I believe I have ever seen Good job Marty and Jeff. Looking forward to fishing again with this outfit.
