On a fairly cloudy and calm day Mitch Brannon was able to crack the code and bring in a nice bag of bass to the scales, anchored by the 7 pound mud turkey giving himself a good payday of first and big bass.  Behind him also with a good sack of fish was Jason Walker and Bobby Gates, third place was held by Bill Wooten and Eddie Watkins.  Only one hundredth of a pound separated fourth and fifth places, with the father son duo of MIke and Blake Anschultz just edging out the team of Ron Mounts and Darrell Fletcher. Congratulations to these guys, and a special thanks to Jesse Cordell and NIcky Gates for filling in today to run the scales!  Our next tournament will be down south at East Lake on September 6th.  We hope to see everyone out there, this is the last regular season tournament of the year.  There are a few teams on the bubble for the classic, remember you have to fish 5 tournaments to qualify.  We will discuss the classic after the weigh in, if weather permits so have in mind where you would like to go.  Also don't forget about the drawing we are having for the Abu Garcia Villain Rod.  Tickets are $3 a piece or 6 for $15.

As always thanks to our sponsors!

On a hot, calm, and down right tough day NIcky Gates and Jesse Cordell brought in the biggest sack of fish to the scales with a very nice sack of fish.  Behind them in second place was Marvin Ross and Eugene Zuber, Justin Doyle and Chip Youngblood, Bob Hardin and Sawyer Floyd who also brought in the biggest bass, and Ken Youngblood and Mark Watson.  We will have a month break before the next tournament which will be the Horner, Shirey and Portia Bay scramble.  In the mean time be looking at how many tournaments you have fished some of you are still a little short from qualifying for the classic which is done by fishing 5 tournaments this year. 

On another note, we will be raffling off a 7'6" Medium Heavy Abu Garcia Villain Rod, valued at $180.  Raffle tickets will be $3 per ticket or 6 tickets for $15.  When you take the money make sure you have their names down.  We will draw for the rod at the classic on September 27th, the last day for taking money for the drawing will be September 20th, and the money and names need to be turned in to Andy Latting by September 24th.  

A special thanks to Ken Youngblood, and Mark Watson for weighing fish at the tournaments, we really appreciate your dedication.  Also thanks to Jesse Cordell and Steve Westmoreland for helping out yesterday, you guys were life savers!
