The second tournament of the season was at Lake Lemon and although the weather was spectacular the fishing was as tough as it gets. The bite was light and 19 teams only managed to weigh in 21 bass. 1st place went to a new team to the club Phil Harbaugh Sr./ Phil Harbaugh Jr. with a total weight of 8.72lb anchored with Big Bass #1 at 5.24 lb. Ted and Natalie McClintick came in 2nd with 7.82 lb. and had 2nd Big Bass with a 5.12 lb. largemouth. 3rd place went to Wayne Judd and Byron Johnson with two fish weighing in at 5.64 lb. Ted and Natalie are entering into their third season and have done a fantastic job of learning how to become better tournament anglers, this is the first tournament for them to place in the money and also big bass. This is going to be a break out year for them. “Congratulations” and “Thank You” to all of the teams, Lake Lemon is a challenging lake to conduct a tournament with this many boats and everyone worked together to make everything as smooth as possible.
Fishing was tough at the first tournament of the season today at good old Lake Waveland. No teams brought a five fish limit to the scales while only two teams had four fish, four teams blanked and the rest ended the day with one to three fish. Phil Mobley and Jeremy Crossley brought four fish to the scales weighing in at 8.91 lbs. for 1st place, Mike Botos and Josh Ray had four fish weighing 8.34 lbs. for 2nd place and husband and wife team of Ron and Tammy Branham weigh in 6.89 lbs. for 3rd place anchored with Big Bass of the tournament weighing 5.35 lb. It was great to see everyone back on the water and everything from the check in to the awards went perfectly, thanks to everyone for helping to make this a great day. Lake Lemon is our next tournament on May 2nd, keep an eye out for the Lake Lemon tournament reminder. Lake lemon is a challenging lake to conduct a tournament because of the limited space at the boat ramp. Mike has a good plan using the overflow parking area for check in and weigh in that should make it easier.
