Triumphs at Cedar Creek
Century member, Coy Frazier, showed once again that when it comes to summertime
conditions and using a Carolina rig, he is the man to beat by taking 1st
place honors at our June 13 tournament held on Cedar Creek.
Although the overall weights were down compared to pre-fishing reports,
Coy managed a very respectable 5-fish limit for 10.72 lbs. to take the $308
first place prize. Coy’s fish were caught “dragging” centipedes in water
17’ deep. Great job, Coy, and
I’m sure the other anglers hope to draw out with you to learn the art of
dragging from the “master” in the next few months of summertime fishing.
truly” captured 2nd place with the only other limit brought to the
scales weighing 10.21 lbs. My fish
also come on Carolina rigged centipedes in water 9-17” deep. I was rewarded to the tune of $220 as well as an additional
$80 for my half of the heavy boat pot. Chad
McFarland, my partner for the day, had one fish for 1.96 lbs and also pocketed
place went to Century tournament director, Philip Webb, with four fish for 8.50
lbs. which also included the big bass of the day at 3.83 lbs. Philip’s fish came on crank baits and drop shot rigs in
water 7-15’ deep. Philip
collected $132 for his third place finish and $160 for the big bass award.
I heard tell at the weigh in that Philip lost a nice fish late in the day
on a dropshot rig that might have given him the win.
I do know that Philip wishes he had the nice lunker that he caught the
week before pre-fishing. Nick
Carroccio and I were lucky enough to see this beautiful 8.5-lber.
Save those fish for tournament day, Philip!
Harshbarger took 4th place with four bass at 8.31 lbs. John took home $97.
and sixth place went to Robert Hargrove and Wally Hughey, respectively.
Robert’s four fish weighed 6.01 lbs and garnered him $70 and Wally’s
two fish at 5.87 lbs. was good for $55.
Yates was the winner of the “1st place out of the money” tackle
pack and Carey Gajdica was the winner of the free entry drawing.
There were 57 bass brought to the scales for a total of 110.04 lbs and 1
1.93 lb average.
Don’t forget to bring in your used plastics at the tournaments and any unwanted baits/tackle to the meeting to be recycled and donated to Little Buddies, Casting Kids, and other children’s fishing organizations.
