Cole added another victory to his long list of tournament wins at Lake
O’ the Pines with a five fish limit that weighed 15.69 lbs.
a hot and sometimes windy day, 23 anglers weighed in 113.74 lbs. for a
2.37 lb. average. Most of the 48 keeper fish came from flooded brush and
trees by flipping tube baits and jigs. Some fish were also caught on
Carolina rigs, crankbaits and spinnerbaits.
Adam captured 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 11.60 lbs. Mike
must be heating up with the weather because this was his second
consecutive strong finish.
Martin’s 4 fish at 11.32 lbs. were good enough for 3rd place
and along with Danny Yates 3 fish at 8.59 lbs. was enough for combo pot
honors at 19.91 lbs.
Danny’s weight was helped in no small part by the day’s big
bass weighing 5.32 lbs. I was told that Danny loudly predicted big bass
honors Saturday night. Who would have thought that his trash talk of
winning big bass with a 5½ pounder would actually be backed up?
Danny and Gary narrowly edged out Bobby Cole and Hameed Ghaffar who
fell just short of combo honors with 19.86 lbs.
fish also narrowly edged out Craig Dowis’ 4.74 pounder. Craig caught his
fish from my boat while fishing with Randy Kvapil and me. Let me tell you,
when some one hooks a good fish with three fishermen in the boat it turns
into a Chinese fire drill.
Hammond continued his hot streak with 5 fish good for 11.30 lbs. and 4th
place. The always-consistent Robert Hargrove, also with 5 fish, came in 5th
place with 9.26 lbs.
club’s Top Six is really getting tight. As of now, before the drops
start after the next tournament, we’ve got Robert Hargrove on top with
463 points. Danny Yates is leading the race for 2nd with 423
points while Paul Zukosky and Jim Hammond are right on his heels with 421
points a piece. Right behind them we’ve got Randy Kvapil and myself with
419 points and then there’s Jon Harshbarger with 403 and Craig Dowis
This race is going to be fun – I’ve heard there are a couple of new sheriff’s in town. Get your hats on tight!
