Last Sunday November 1st, the Ray Hubbard Bass Club in association with the American Cancer Society put on our Fifth Annual Fish For A Cure benefit tournament. It was a beautiful day, clear and sunny and temps ranged from the mid 40's to the mid 60's. The wind blew pretty good out of the north, but not as bad as predicted so that was a blessing. 58 boats came out for a day of fishing and to raise money for the fight against cancer. Fishing was pretty tough as it seems to be everywhere right now but as always a few teams caught them. Our winners this year was the team of Danny Wims and Justin Spoerl who weighed in a great bag of 19.56 pounds. This included big bass of the event, a 5.95 beast. My apologies for not knowing everyone's name. Here are full results and pictures

Former FFAC Champion Eric Krause fished with Nick Allen and weighed a fat sack of 15.18

[Linked Image]

That was good for fifth place

[Linked Image]

Weigh in is always a family affair for the Ross's. Here's Thomas and his two boys and the 15.74 sack they weighed in

[Linked Image]

He fished with Chris Tilton from Napa Auto Parts in Wylie who always step up big for FFAC. They finished fourth

[Linked Image]

Next up with a limit weighing 16.04 was Doug Rener and Brett Killingsworth

[Linked Image]

Doug is a tireless volunteer for this event. His hard work and generosity from him and his family are much appreciated and Brett steps up with a major prize for our drawing every year. This event is not what it is yearly without these guys

[Linked Image]

Chadd Dearen and Jay Shipe had an excellent bag of 16.73

[Linked Image]

That got them second place this year

[Linked Image]

This years Champions, Danny Wims and Justin Spoerl won going away with a bag that went 19.56

[Linked Image]

That included big bass of the tournament, a 5.95 hawg

[Linked Image]

To the winners go the spoils. Congratulations gentlemen!

[Linked Image]

I will do a full thank you thread soon but I have to say we owe a huge debt of gratitude to Larry Ladnier of Victory Fishing who volunteers his time and equipment for Fish For A Cure and runs a fantastic tournament. Mostly thanks to everyone who came out in this the strangest of all years and helped raise a lot of money for the American Cancer Society.
