GHAFFAR Takes First At Pines
Hameed Ghaffar battled the stout bass at Lake O' the Pines at our May 16th tournament and came out victorious! Using a Zoom Trick Worm (watermelon/candy) rigged Texas style, Hameed brought a 5-fish limit to the scales for a very respectable 14.33 lbs. When questioned on location he only divulged that his fish came from shallow water in three different locations at the south end of the lake. Hameed pocketed $298 for 1st place as well as $110 for heavy boat - a superior feat considering he was fishing solo for the tournament. Way to go Hameed!
Nabbing 2nd place for the second straight tournament was "Sheriff" Danny Yates. Danny's 4 bass came on a Zoom Frog from the upper reaches of Pines, and tipped the scales at 12.45 lbs. Danny pocketed $185 to sweeten his long ride home.
Past Century President, Craig Dowis, took 3rd place honors with a 5-fish limit weighing 10.58 lbs. which also included a 5.22 lb. kicker for Big Bass of the tournament. Craig earned a combined $222 for 3rd place and Big Bass. Craig's primary bait was a Fluke around grass.
Wally Hughey continued his hot streak on Lake O' the Pines. Wally took 4th place with 9.58 lbs and took home $67 for his efforts. This comes after winning $600 at a Big Bass tournament on April 27th while practicing for the Century tournament.
Nick Carroccio was the winner of the 1st place out-of-the-money tackle pack with 5 fish weighing 8.90 lbs. Duane Climer won the free entry drawing.
There were 41 bass brought to the scales that totaled 94.63 lbs. for a 2.31 lb. average. All the fish survived and release back into the lake alive.
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.
