It was a good day to be on the water at Cottage Grove Reservoir. We had a total of 12 boats for the tournament and the weather never got too bad. We had some sprinkles, but the wind stayed down all day. There were a lot of small fish and quite a few big fish that were lost. Overall, it was a great day for fishing, but a little tougher for catching. Congratulations to Joe Hunter and Ken Carpenter who really figured it out. They came in first with 17.35lbs with a 4.78lb fish for big fish of the tournament. Second place went to Rick Miller and Craig Sutphin with 9.89lbs and the second big fish for the tournament with a 4.28lb spotted bass that looked like a football. Third place went to Harvey Banker and Kevin McNeill with 9.50lbs. Great job guys!!
On another note, we had a discussion and a vote in regards to our Galesville Tournament in July. This tournament has been changed to Siltcoos Lake and will be on the same day, July 11th. This tournament was changed due to a conflict with another tournament and apparently Siltcoos might be getting back to being a good lake for bass again.

Up next on May 16th we have our annual spring tournament on Cottage Grove Reservoir. The water level is a little lower then last year at this time, but fishing should be really good. Our blast off is scheduled for 5:30am and weigh in will be at 3:00pm. We always have a good time at Cottage Grove, so get your gear ready and we will see everyone Saturday!
