Can you say wet?

What a wet tournament!  It absolutely poured all day for our March tournament on Tenmile Lakes. We had 17 boats turn out for the tournament and a lot of fish were caught, even in the crazy wet weather.  Congratulations to Harvey Banker and Ray Austin who won the whole thing with a total weight of 21.51#'s with a 7.35# gorilla for their big fish.  Here is Harvey with the big fish for the tournament.

Harvey's 7.35# Gorilla

The rest of us had fun catching plenty of fish and enjoying the fantastic weather.  Ok, the weather wasn't very fun, but who cares about the weather when you are catching fish.  Every boat came in with a limit and some pretty good weights were brought to the scales.  Second place goes to Joe Hunter and Travis Fugate with 16.25#'s and a 5.52# big fish.  Third place goes to Eric Wilson and Josh Gimlin with 15.60#'s and a 4.95# big fish.  The second biggest fish of the tournament was a 5.71# pig caught by Mike Strickler.  Great job everyone and welcome to the club Eric and Josh!

Overall, this was a great tournament, even if we all had to wring out a couple gallons of water out of our gear when we were all done.  Thanks to everyone for showing up and braving the wet weather. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next tournament at Tahkenitch Lake on April 18th.  Also, we have our monthly club meeting coming up on March 30th at the North Bend Public Library at 7pm.  Please get there if you can, we have some important things to discuss and are getting stuff organized for our annual Tenmile Open tournament.   

Here are the Preliminary Results for the tournament.

Tenmile Tournament - March 14, 2015

We are five days away from the upcoming March tournament on Tenmile Lakes.  Our club will be converging on the county boat ramp at Tenmile Lakes for blast-off at 7:15am with weigh-in commencing at 4pm.  Our prefishing period is over and the lakes are now off limits for competitors until the tournament on Saturday March 14th.  This upcoming tournament should be very interesting with the weather changing mid-week and current water temperatures being somewhat higher than typical for this time of year.  Let's get the tackle and boats ready, it's going to be a great tournament!

We will be having a quick club meeting after the tournament that will last maybe 10 minutes.  Please plan to stick around after the weigh-in.  We look forward to seeing everyone this Saturday!
