August 13, 2011

 

Tournament Lake:        Bob Sandlin (night)       Conditions:     Full Moon / Wind: Light & Variable

        Tournament Hours 2:     1:45am – 8:00am

 

Fishing Lake Bob Sandlin in August was quite a relief from the record summer temperatures… On top of that we had a rare north wind for half the night which lowered the humidity levels and allowed for some pleasant bass fishing conditions. But by the time weigh-in was over everyone was sweating as usual.

The night owl this month was Jon Harshbarger taking home his 2nd victory of the year. Jon started with only 3 fish during the first secession and was in 5th going into round two. He then made a longer run to the other end of the lake and found his fish. He brought 5 keepers to the scales weighing a net of 17.23lbs and a grand total of 24.74lbs with only 8 fish. Jon boated his fish using a Sammy and a DD-22 during the light hours and a brush hog and large craw worm at night. These baits were fished around main lake points.

2nd place went to Chad Hensley for his two limits weighing 18.42lbs. He caught his bass on a crankbait, shakey head and a spinnerbait around rock and wood cover.

Randy Conover also weighs in 10 total bass to finish in 3rd place with 18.33lbs. He fished points on the main lake with a trick worm and a c-rig.

Dan Phifer junk fished his way into 4th place with a net total weight of 18.25lbs. Crankbait, topwater, shakey head, Chatterbait, spinnerbait and a Senko made up his arsenal of baits catching 9 total keepers.

        Two limits for Mike Hughs wasn’t enough, he comes in 5th place. His fish were caught using a crankbait and a c-rig.

Big bass honors for this tournament went to Jon Harshbarger with a hefty 5.62lb’er. He also worked together with Mike Stewart to take home the heavy boat stringer with a grand total and net combined weight of 35.85lbs. 

Jon also gets the coveted grand slam of bass fishing: 1st place, big bass and heavy boat stringer in one tournament. Way to go!

You should know and understand the importance of fish care. But if you want a refresher go to the top of our newsletter page and click on “Fish Care info.” This will continue to be important since the bass are stressed due to high temperatures.

Don’t forget to get your new fishing license…
