Hargrove Dominates at Lewisville
Well, folks, he did it again! Same song, different verse. Robert Hargrove topped the field at our April 18 tourney held on Lake Lewisville. He brought in the only limit for 9.65 lbs. On a day where everyone was trying to find a way to fish in high winds topping 25 mph, Robert utilized a “Mean Machine” rig in shallow water for his 1st place victory. Robert collected $315 as well as $63 for his half of the heavy boat weight. For those wondering about the “Mean Machine” rig, talk to Robert or his partner for the day, Paul Zukosky, as Robert was tight lipped on the new technique. A side note, though, Robert was recovering from a fall prior to the weekend and was at best only 65%. Just goes to show even hobbled, Robert is a tough competitor. Great job Robert!
Second place and Big Bass in the Lewisville wind fest went to Century President, Nick Carroccio with a nice fish of 3.64 lbs. Nick’s fish was caught on a crank bait around rip rap and pocketed him $205 for 2nd place and an additional $125 for Big Bass. Nice fish, Nick.
Mike Adam was our 3rd place finisher with one bass at 2.98 lbs. His $118 bass was caught on a Carolina Rig in 5 feet of water. Fourth and fifth place went to Randy Short and Century Treasurer, Paul Zukosky with one fish each for 2.55 lbs and 2.25 lbs, respectively. For their work, Randy collected $87 and Paul collected $63 as well as Paul’s additional $63 for his half of the heavy boat weight.
Michael Climer was the winner of the free entry drawing and Chuck Middleton was the winner of the 1st place out-of-the-money tackle pack. There were only 14 fish weighed in for a total of 29.94 lbs and a 2.30 lb average. Let’s hope next month’s tournament at Lake of the Pines is kinder to Century anglers in respect to fish and the weather.
Don’t forget to bring in your used plastics at the tournaments and any unwanted baits/tackle to the meeting to be recycled and donated to Little Buddies, Casting Kids, and other children’s fishing organizations.
