Joe Thompson Scores Win

On Cypress

Joe Thompson took top honors at Century’s June 12 tournament on Cypress Springs. Joe’s limit of 13.54 lbs also included the big bass of the tournament @ 6.53 lbs. The winning bag was caught using a Carolina rigged green pumpkin trick worm from 6' to 14' deep. Joe’s 1st place win earned him $330 and $150 for big bass and an additional $75 for half of the heavy boat weight. Great job, Joe!

Second place went to Jon Harshbarger with a nice limit for 10.71 lbs and a check for $236. Jon’s fish came on a “Rico” and a Carolina rigged stud fry.

Angler of the Year for 2004, Robert Hargrove, took 3rd place money for $142 with 5 nice keepers totaling 10.52 lbs. I didn’t get a chance to “Q” Robert on his baits and techniques, but I would venture a guess his famed “Chicken Rig” was responsible.

“Easy” Ernie Jordan was 4th with 4 bass @ 9.56 lbs and garnered Ernie $104 for his day on the lake. Ernie used Horny Toads around grass and pads to nab his fish.

Fifth place went to Tommy Yates whose 4 fish for 9.38 lbs were caught (according to Ernie, his partner for the day) on Buzz Baits and Spinner Baits. Tommy collected $76 for the 5th place finish.

Bobby Cole took the final check of $57 for his 6th place showing. Bobby’s 3 keepers were caught on a Carolina Rigged green pumpkin plastic in water 14' deep and paid $57 plus his share of the heavy boat weight of $75.

Winner of the first place out-of-the-money tackle pack was Mark Calhoun and Bobby Cole was the winner of the free entry drawing.

There were 70 bass caught by 32 anglers for a total weight of 150.79 lbs for a 2.15 lb average.

Congratulations to Robert Hargrove who competed at the BASS Central Divisional held on Lake Amstad June 5-10. Robert did an excellent job finishing 57th out of 96 of the best fishermen from the Central Division of BASS. Way to go Robert!!!!
