Today was our 6th anniversary. Jan 30 2014 was a very cold day with 35 mph winds and only 3 fish caught from the 3 boats 6 angler first tournament for a new club. Today it started out at 40 degrees and very light winds with 20 boats catching 64 fish with the boater winner turning in 28.58 LB with a 7.68 lunker. Mostly senior citizens we dressed for the proposed bad weather but once again the weathermen failed to get it right and it actually wasn't to bad.

So after being off for the last 2 weeks for bad weather, todays fish were caught from 22 to 1' deep on a variety of baits including baby brush hogs, ned rigs, crankbaits and chatter baits.

This is a 5 fish limit, all fish count 10" up including slots since all fish are measured, recorded and released on the spot.
