Hammond "Slips Under" for the Win at Cypress 

Jim Hammond slipped a Fluke under a few choice docks and captured top honors at Century’s August 28 night tournament held at Cypress Springs.  Although Jim was 2 fish short of a 5-fish limit, it never hurts to have a 6-lber in your weigh-in bag—6.08 lbs to be precise!  Jim also used a “Pop R” during the night to snag a keeper.  Jim took home not only 1st place money of $284 for his 10.52 lb sack, but Big Bass money of $110 and heavy boat money of an additional $110 for a grand total of $504.  Congratulations Jim!

Second place and $175 went to the big man, Coy Frazier.  Coy weighed in 4 fish at 9.64 lbs for his night long efforts.  His fish came on spinnerbaits and buzz baits.

Dusty Richards was the 3rd place finisher with 4 fish weighing 9.42 lbs caught on baby brush hogs and buzz baits.  Dusty pocketed $108 for his 3 ˝ hours of fishing…that’s right!  Seems Dusty waited until 4:00 a.m. to start putting keepers in the boat.  Just teasing, Dusty.

Century Treasurer and long-time member, Paul Zukosky, took the final 4th place check of $63 for the only limit brought in by the 23 members that fished.  Paul’s fish tipped the scales at 8.50 lbs.    

Mike Stewart was the winner of the 1st Place Out of the Money tackle pack as well as the free entry drawing.    

The 23 members weighed in 49 bass at 106.57 lbs and a 2.17 lb average during a night that was picture perfect with a beautiful full moon, light winds, and air temps in the upper 60’s.    

SPECIAL NOTE—
Don’t forget to renew your fishing license before the next tournament at Toledo Bend.
