After raining most of the week, the rain held off for most of this morning. Just one major rain cloud rolled over Cedar Creek for about 15 minutes, but that didn't dampen the spirits of 16 junior anglers. With the gates opened up, the bite had slowed, but there were still some impressive stringers and big fish brought in.
There was a tie for big fish with Savanah H and Addie E both bringing a 1.78 lb brute to the scales.
Addie E also had big stringer with 5 fish hitting the 5.67 mark.
Wyatt S put 5 fish on the scales at 5.40 for second place and a big fish at 1.29.
His sister, Gracis S, put her 5 fish up next and the scales read 5.39 for third place.
Fourth place went to Langdon F with 5 fish also at 5.39. But Gracie had the tie breaker with a bigger fish at 1.43. Langdon's big fish went 1.19
Fifth place was Cindy G at 5.19 and big fish at 1.21.
With the girls taking 3 of the top five spots, the boys are gona have to regroup for next year.
There were lots of prizes, $25 Wal-Mart gift cards and tackle packs for all participants and some special prizes in the drawings. Two nice bicycles were given away and plenty of other nice prizes. Constant Pursuit Outfitters, Lane Palmer, surprised one lucky angler, Mason J, with a $100 bonus for the lightest 5 fish. That produced a big smile for sure.
Lots of smiles and good times for all.
