Cedar Creek


Mark Calhoun Wins Another Cedar Creek Title

Mark Calhoun captured his first Century victory at Cedar Creek last June and he reclaimed his title this year with a five fish limit weighing 15.12 pounds and a check for $353.00.

29 anglers brought 62 fish to the scales for a 160.59 pounds for a 2.59 average. The lake was at normal level and itís great to see the fishing getting better this year. Last year at this tournament we only had one limit weighed in and the Big Bass was 5.25 pounds. In comparison, this year we had four limits weighed in and the Big Bass stretched the scale to 7.18 pounds. So things do appear to be looking up. With temperatures reaching nearly 95 degrees, and very little wind, everyone did a great job of caring for their catch and as a consequence we only lost fish and the other 60 fish looked to be in great shape.

Coy Frazier had a great weekend. He won the BASS Federation tournament on Saturday with a limit weighing 16.78 pounds and had the dayís Big Bass. He then came out on Sunday and finished 2nd in our tournament with three fish weighing 13.73 including one at 7.18 pounds for Big Bass for a second time in as many days. Coy teamed up with Vince Kiesling (three fish/6.84 pounds) to capture heavy boat honors with a combined weight of 20.57 pounds.  who also weighed in three fish at 6.84 pounds. Coyís efforts paid him $389.00.

Third place went to David Magers who earned $132.00 for his four fish weighing $12.68 pounds. John Pierce captured fourth place with a five fish limit that weighed 12.57 pounds and paid $97.00. Jon Harshbarger also had five fish limit and was close behind in fifth place with 11.84 pounds and earned $71.00. Paul Zukosky also brought a limit to the scales, but his five fish weighed 10.18 pounds and just out of the money in sixth place.

The standings for our Angler of the Year title and Top Six team are close, but Robert Hargrove has taken his place at the top of the standing with 390 points. Close behind in tie for 2nd place are Coy Frazier and Bill Kessler with 383 points followed by Randy Kvapil and Paul Zukosky who are in another tie at 377. I follow them with 369 points, and Mike Adam is close behind with 364 points. There are 19 anglers with over 300 points and each one has a legitimate shot at making our Top Six team. The State Tournament will again be at the scenic and fertile Lake Amistad down on the Texas, Mexico border.

Century members also hold the top three spots in the BASS Federation Northeast Region. They are Randy Kvapil followed by Robert Hargrove and Coy Frazier. Mike Adam is in 6th place. Century Bass Club has been well represented with our members making up half of the 52 who have fished the regional events.

Our next tournament will be at Sam Rayburn July 27th and 28th. We will be going out of the Twin Dykes ramp for this event. Call Bass Buster Inn for rooms at 409-698-3002.

I also want to take a moment pass along condolences to Robert Hargrove on behalf of the entire Century Bass Club. Robertís mother passed away on Sunday June 16th and was buried the following Thursday on June 20th. Robert wanted everyone to know he genuinely appreciated the cards, flowers and condolences from so many of our club members.
