Henderson Classic. October 4th-5th.

Day one of our classic brought rain, wind, and chilly weather. Take off was postponed one hour while we decided if we wanted to fish due the forecast for rough waters. We decided to stay and fish on. We launched at 8am and weighed in at 2pm at Bill Saiff’s Outdoor West View Lodge. Tom Church had a strong day one with over 18lbs of bass. However, a strong day two by Jeff Botting would lift him to the top spot.


Rainy conditions on day 1 as we prepared for blast off.
