Martin Creek Lake


As Robert Hargrove was walking back to his table after accepting his 8th Angler of the Year award (see Angler-of-the-Year) at our 2001 awards banquet, some good natured heckling was heard in the crowd.  Something about “new Sheriffs in town” and “this was going to be the last one of those he would get”, etc.  Well, I guess that scared him … so much that he went out and won the first tournament of 2002! 

Second place went to Robert’s non-boater, Mark Calhoun who continues to do well in his second year at Century. He captured big bass with a 6.23 bucketmouth.  Together they split the heavy boat pot. 

Gary Martin decided to weigh in his fish this weekend - enough to place third in he Century tournament and first in the Federation tournament on Saturday (a five bass limit from the back of my boat - I didn’t even weight in a fish!  I just got to watch him catch all of those fish with his favorite little bait  in a stiff breeze,  current,  and in water up to 15’ using a 1/16oz weight!) 

It was a typical tough tournament on Martin Creek - cold mornings, no grass and few fish.  We had a total of thirty one anglers fishing and only sixteen caught fish and nobody had a limit.

Lake Tyler - February 24 

Let’s hope that the fishing is better at our February tournament on Lake Tyler.  On a pre-fishing adventure, several Century members didn’t find any hydrilla or any other meaningful grass.  Word has it that the lake was sprayed a couple of years ago.  For anglers new to the lake (as I was) free maps are available at the marina.
