Well. again like last year, we had to fish the day after a cold front. But, what a great day on the water. The air temp was 60 degrees at blast off, and it warmed up to the high 70's by noon.

Joe Valerio maneuvers his boat.

These cold front days are hard fishing, but almost everyone found some fish and we all had a good time.

Dave Donhauser and Mike O'Hora

This is our second "team tournament" of two that we hold each year.  Members are teamed up according to points to form a team and they fish for their best 5 fish.

Dick Hyde and Jack Wilson

As the morning went on, almost everyone ended up working the deep weeds. Some used Venom tubes, some jig & pigs, and some even went to worms rigged "whacky" style.

At 1:00 p.m.  the weigh table is set up and weighing-in starts.

When everyone was weighed in, here is the top places.

Shawn Potalski and Jack Loughery

Bass Pro in Auburn sponsors our "Just out of the money" award which is fishing rods (value $50.00) to the anglers that finish in that position.  Today that award goes to Shawn Potalski and Jack Loughery.

Jack Wilson receives the Big Bass Award.

Bass Pro also sponsors our "Big Bass" award which is a $25.00 gift card. Along with our cash for the big bass caught during the day.

Chris Cartwright and John Nye

And first place this week goes to the team of Chris Cartwright and John Nye who caught 5 bass weighing in at 14.64 pounds.

Jack Wilson and his Big Bass

Jack Wilson shows off his big bass, a 5.09 pounder.

Now how did Jack catch his big fish.

Jack was using a Bass Pro Tournament Series worm in the above funky color. He was working the outside of the weed beds, and had the worm rigged "whacky" style.  As most of us, he also was catching many smaller fish, but this was a very nice "kicker" for their bag.

When is Bass Pro ask any one of the associates working in the fishing department to show you this color.
