Well, the first one is done and in the books. There were 19 participants! Great turn out and lots of fun! The wind decided to blow 30 mph the day of the tournament after 2 weeks of no wind! Welcome to south Texas. We had people travel as far away as Coletto Creek to fish and we appreciate ya! Below are the results:

1st place...Jere Koonce with 7.20 lbs...$190.00
2nd place...Lee Lopez with 6.54 lbs...$144.00
3rd place... Bob Koonce with 4.12 lbs...$76.00
Big Bass....Lee Lopez @ 3.58 lbs...$95.00

The wind caused tough fishing conditions with big waves and the inability to hold on to some fishing spots. Shallow the water muddied up pretty good but all in all we had a great turn out and met some good people over hot-dogs and cold drinks! Next up...this Friday August 26th!
See ya there!
God bless

Sorry to be getting this out so late but been super busy! Got a day off so I figured I would get this done.

I want to start by telling ya'll there was a discrepancy in the weights for 3rd place. Fact is, we miss calculated. Going to fast, I don't know but we are gonna slow down a bit. Anyway, Michael Ramirez was announced as 3rd with 2.98 lbs when Paul Brittain's weight came in at 3.06 lbs. When Chris and I got home and went through the paper work we found the discrepancy.

I have called Paul and set the record straight and will be giving him a 3rd place payout ($60) at the next weigh-in. Michael will not be required to return the prize money as the issue is of no fault of his.

I apologize for the mistake and we will work harder so as this will not happen again.




That being said, lets talk fishing! It was tough! 17 people fished, with 15 paid entries, and only eight fish weighed in. I don't know where these little greenies went but I am gonna be looking for them the next few weeks. With the lake up 4-5 ft they could have went anywhere!

Results for Tournament #2




1st place.....Max Gonzales...2 fish for 3.68 lbs

2nd place....NIcolas Gould...1 fish for 3.38 lbs

3rd place.....Paul Brittain......1 fish for 3.06 lbs

4th place.....Michael Ramirez..1 fish for 2.98 lbs




Next event will be Friday Sept. 9th

Again, thank to all for the great turn outs, the food, and the drinks. Thanks to South Texas Marine for their continued support and running the weigh-in for us! See ya'll Sept. 9th!




God bless

Well the 3rd event is in the books. More fish seem to have been caught in different ways. As usual, the 30mph winds played a part. Whether you braved them to fish open waters or ran to protected pockets fish seem to be everywhere. Still lots of undersize but that only means the lake will get better and better, providing our water isn't taken away from us.

Special shout out to Max Gonzales for supplying us with some eats! Mr. Pizza from Ben Bolt supplied us with all we could eat pizza and I must say, it was very good! Took one home! So if your in the Ben Bolt area, be sure and stop by Mr. Pizza. You will be glad you did!

On to fishing! It was our biggest turn out so far! We had 21 participants. For the first time, limits were brought to the scales. Below are the final standings:




1st Place.......Will Ramirez......3 fish for 7.50 lbs $210.00

2nd Place......Robert Divin......3 fish for 6.76 lbs $126.00

3rd Place......Lee Lopez.........1 fish for 3.76 lbs $84.00

Big Bass.......Lee Lopez..........3.76 lbs $105.00




The fish are starting to bite a little better, its a little cooler, the crowds getting bigger, and we eat! The payout aint to shabby for a bunch of lake rats! Come out and join us! Fun, fishing, food, and camaraderie. Our next tournament will be Sept. 23rd (Friday Night), at the State Park. See ya there!!




God bless

Robert
