Robert Hargrove Tops Pines

At our April 27 tournament held at Lake O The Pines, Robert Hargrove (again) out fished 26 other members bringing to the scales a 5-fish limit weighing 14.09 lbs, which included the Big Bass at 4.51 lbs.  Robert’s catch was worth $503 for 1st place, Big Bass, and half of the heavy boat purse.  Robert’s fish came from the north end on his famous chicken rig and a spinnerbait.  Congratulations Robert!

Robert’s partner for the day, Tommy Yates, finished a strong 2nd with 4 fish weighing 12.99 lbs and was beaten out for Big Bass honors by a mere .01.  Tommy’s fish came on a Lake Fork Craw Tube and earned him $265 for 2nd place and half of the heavy boat money.

Third place belonged to last month’s winner, Craig Dowis, with a limit totaling 10.40 lbs and a check for $110.  Craig’s fish were caught using spinnerbaits. 

Fourth and fifth place were captured by Paul Zukosky and Randy Kvapel respectively with the only 2 other five-fish limits brought to the scales.   Paul’s bag topped the scales at 10.18 lbs with Randy right behind him with 10.12 lbs.  For their efforts Paul received $87 and Randy walked away with the final check for $63.  Randy Conover was the winner of the free entry drawing.

Congratulations are in order for Carey and Lisa Gajdica on the birth of their daughter, Megan Nicole.  I have personally heard from proud Grandpa, Bernie Gajdica, that she is a “Little Angel."

Until next month.
