It is now September and we have a busy couple months coming up. On September 13th we will have our annual Top Ten Tournament. The lake has been selected and we will be fishing Eel Lake. This tournament is only for those members who were in the top ten spots for angler of the year for 2013. If any members have questions about this tournament, contact our tournament director Kevin McNeill. This should be a good tournament as Eel Lake usually fishes pretty good this time of year. The next weekend on September 20th our club has our 8th club tournament for the year at Cottage Grove Reservoir. The water levels are down somewhat at Cottage Grove Reservoir, but the lake is still accessible and fishing has been pretty good there the last couple weeks. Also, on September 13th & 14th we have the annual Salmon Derby on the Coos River system and salmon fishing has been pretty good the last couple weeks. The Club Classic is coming up on October 11th at Prineville Reservoir which is being hosted by the Central Oregon Bass Club. Further information on the Club Classic can be obtained from Kevin McNeill. So let's get out and catch some fish! Good luck to all of the competitors in the Top Ten Tournament and anyone who is not fishing that, come on down to Coos Bay/North Bend this weekend and get into the Salmon Derby.

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!
