We had a great night on the Tenmile Lakes this past Saturday night. We had a total of 13 boats. The tournament was structured so that we had a weigh in at 11:30pm for our first five fish of the night, which were then released and then a final weigh in with our final five fish at 7am on Sunday morning. The fishing was a little tough, but there were still some good fish caught throughout the night. Congratulations goes out to Harvey Banker and Ray Austin who weighed in 10.30lbs for the 11:30pm weigh in and 10.19lbs for the final weigh in. They had one dead fish for a 0.50lb penalty, which brought their total weight to 19.99lbs for the win. Second place went to Ken Carpenter and Brian Johnson who weighed in 8.33lbs for the 11:30pm weigh in and 8.63lbs for the 7am weigh in bringing their total to 16.96lbs, which put them in second place for the night. Third place went to Larry and Kaden Slaughter who came in with 4.33lbs at 11:30pm and then they weighed the biggest bag of the night at 7am with five fish for 11.40lbs, which brought their total to 15.73lbs. Big fish for the night was close. Larry and Kaden Slaughter weighed in the biggest fish at 4.39lbs. Ken Carpenter and Brian Johnson had the second biggest fish at 4.33lbs. Congratulations to everyone for hanging tough throughout the night. The weather was almost dead calm all night with some cooler temperatures just before dawn. We were fortunate to have fantastic weather and a great turnout for this tournament! Next up, we head to Cottage Grove on September 20th!

On August 16th at 7pm we will blast off for our club night tournament. This will be a long crazy night with plenty of adventure and hopefully some big fish! We will be doing two weigh-ins. The first at 11:30pm and then the final weigh-in will be at 7am on Sunday August 17th. We will be gathering at the Tenmile boat ramp around 6pm to check-in and get everything ready. The night tournaments are always exciting and we have seen some really nice fish caught in the past. So be ready with flashlights and double check all of your navigation lights are functioning on your boat. We hope to see you there!
