While most anglers struggled to catch fish during this months tournament, Tournament Champion, Mike Casanova made it look almost easy.  Mike caught at least 13 identical keepers by his partner’s count. His limit had enough quality to edge out the field for a win with a total of 12.11 lbs.  Mike’s fish were caught in shallow water pitching a Watermelon Sugar Free Spit N Fire Jig.  He also had a few keepers on a Lucky Craft shallow crankbait.  He earned $270.00 for his Victory.  But he wasn’t done there, Mike and His partner, Mr. Paul Zukosky, had a combined stringer weight of 20.11 lbs to earn another $47.50 each.

Second place found Century Tournament Director, Joey Deans, who managed to weigh in the only other limit for the tournament.  Joey’s 11.06 lb stringer was caught with a split shot Fluke, in watermelon green, in shallow water.  He was paid $168.00 for his fine catch.

Third place was awarded to Jon Harshbarger.  He managed to catch 3 fish for a 8.15lb total.  His fish were caught Flipping shallow water with a Jig as well as with a Worm.  Jon earned $102.00.

The final money spot was Claimed by a mere 0.05 lbs by Johnny Walker, who’s 3 fish for 8.05lbs was enough to top Paul Zukosky’s  3 fish for 8.00lbs.  Johnny was catching his fish with Carolina Rig Baby Brush Hog in Green Pumpkin Red, as well as on a Crank Bait.  He was paid $60.00.

The tournament Big Bass pot was earned by Paul Pierce.  He weighed in a 4.12lb quality fish and then had to hang on while 3 other guys each weighed in a 4 lb fish that were just less than Paul’s 4.12lbs.  He caught his fish on a Shakey Head Jig, with a watermelon trick worm on a drop off from 5ft to 25ft.  The Big Bass Pot was $95.00.

Please read the

following instructions very carefully and do your best to implement these

instructions, as you and every other angler during this event are part of a grand

solution to prove that a tournament can be conducted with high bass survival rates

and we can leave this lake in as good a shape as we found it. If we do not show respect and

concern for this fishery and others like it, the nonangling

public and regulating authorities may take action

and impose tournament restrictions. Let’s do everything we can to prove that we as ANGLERS are

PROS at keeping bass alive.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR  LIVEWELL CARE

ITEMS TO BRING: ICE (CUBED) MINIMUM OF 25 POUNDS

COOLER TO KEEP ICE IN

POOL THERMOMETER OR DIGITAL PROBE

16 OUNCE BOTTLE OF 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

CATCH & RELEASE FORMULA

MEASURING DEVICE FOR HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

In an effort to provide the best possible live release during this tournament; we are encouraging you to be

proactive in addressing livewell conditions ALL DAY LONG. Although the weigh in procedure is

critical, your handling of the fish throughout the day is even more critical, since the fish are in YOUR

POSSESSION for the majority of the time. Please study the following suggestions and give them your

utmost consideration.

1. In order to properly condition a livewell, you need to know the approximate volume of your livewell.

We highly recommend that you measure the dimensions of your livewell(s) ahead of time to determine

gallon volume. Use the following formula to determine the water capacity of your square or

rectangular livewell. Using a measuring device (tape or ruler), multiply length times width times height

of water in livewell (all in feet) times the constant 7.5. The result will be in gallons.

2. Fill livewell(s) early (shortly after takeoff) from good water in main body of lake. Do not fill

livewell(s) or exchange water in creeks or coves and especially NOT at take off site. HELPFUL TIP:

If you have separate livewells, fill first livewell early and store bags of ice in second livewell. This will

help keep the primary livewell cool. Afterwards, if you need the second livewell, it will be easier to

cool down. This method will also conserve your ice.

3. IMPORTANT!!!!Treat livewell with CATCH & RELEASE early and recirculate

for a couple of

minutes to thoroughly mix. For this tournament use the following chart to determine proper amount of

CATCH & RELEASE to add to your livewell. MAKE SURE YOU DOSE LIVEWELL BEFORE

YOU START FISHING!!!!

GALLONS OF WATER CAPFUL(S) OF CATCH & RELEASE FROM 10 OZ. BOTTLE

1015

Gallons 2 ½ Capfuls Of CATCH & RELEASE

20 Gallons 3 –3 ½ Capfuls Of CATCH & RELEASE

2530

Gallons 5 Capfuls Of CATCH & RELEASE

4. CRITICAL!!!LIVEWELL TEMPERATURES. Please keep your livewell(s) as close as possible to

65 degrees Fahrenheit. DO NOT LET LIVEWELL TEMPERATURES EXCEED 68 degrees

Fahrenheit at any time during this tournament. Check your thermometer OFTEN to make sure

temperatures are in target range.

5. Add 3% hydrogen peroxide to livewell once you catch your FIRST FISH. The 3% hydrogen peroxide

will provide adequate dissolved oxygen levels even if you experience livewell failure. Pay attention to

the dosage rates below and do not exceed our recommendations. Repeat this procedure when you start

to operate second livewell upon introduction of fish.

GALLONS OF WATER 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE DOSAGE RATE

1015

Gallons ½ Cupful (4 Fluid Ounces)

20 Gallons ¾ Cupful (6 Fluid Ounces)

2530

Gallons 1 Cupful (8 Fluid Ounces)

6. If you catch a heavy load of fish, please exchange water in livewell at least once during the day and

repeat cooling of water, dosing of CATCH & RELEASE and reapply hydrogen peroxide to livewell.

7. IMPORTANT!!!!!!!DO NOT. REPEAT. DO NOT PUMP IN FRESH WATER OR

RECIRCULATE FRESH WATER THROUGHOUT THE DAY. This will defeat the purpose of

cooling the water down and applications of water conditioners. DO NOT OPERATE LIVEWELLS

ON TIMED AERATION. KEEP LIVEWELLS ON MANUAL RECIRCULATION

CONSTANTLY.

8. DO NOT FILL WEIGH IN BAGS FROM WATER OVER THE SIDE OF BOAT AT WEIGH

IN SITE!!!!Fill bags with water from treated and cooled livewells. Dip bags in livewells to fill with

water or pump water from livewell through pump out pumps directly to bags as they hang off side of

boat. To fill bags with water from lake at this point will totally defeat the purpose of all the work you

have done in that livewell throughout the day.

9. TIPS FOR DEEP HOOKED OR WOUNDED (BLEEDING) BASS: Wet hands and try to remove

hook using “through the gill method” working quickly. Do not keep bass out of water for more than 40

seconds. If having difficulty, then place bass in livewell water between procedure and allow it to

breathe for a few moments and resume task of hook removal. If bass has swallowed the hook, then cut

the line close as possible to hook eye and place bass in livewell. If bass is bleeding from body or gills,

apply a pinch of CATCH & RELEASE directly to the wound. While we can’t guarantee that your

bass will live, following these procedures will give them the best possible chance for survival.

10. TIPS FOR PROPERLY HANDLING FISH: Try to keep handling bass to a MINIMUM! Try not to

let bass come in contact with carpet or let bass bounce around on carpet. This will cause extreme injury

to the allimportant

slime coat or skin of the bass. If you do disrupt slime coating from this action, then

this is a good time to rub some CATCH & RELEASE on abrasion. Be cautious not to break jaws of

bass. Once broken, that bass will not be able to feed again. ALWAYS hold bass in vertical position or

use TWO HANDS to support body. Holding bass with single hand by way of mouth in a horizontal

position without proper support will dislocate or break jaw.
