We have reached the half way mark, With the completion of the September tournament the Warriors season is half over. The year is flying by but it has been a ball so far. Hope the second half is as good as the first. This months lake of choice was East lake Toho. The fishing has been very slow in recent months but with all the new water do to the hurricane the fish seem to show back up. All but a few teams manage to catch a few and some did very well. Rounding out the money spots in 5th place was a tie between Daren McDermott & Pete Batusis and Shelton Smith & Kenny Bush both with 8.92 lbs. 3rd place went to Vice Edwards & Dale Hayes with 9.46 lbs. Coming in second was Brandon Pascual & Brent Carter with 10.42 lbs. Top Honors go to Bill Bauknight & Brian Deaton with 11.36 lbs. Big Fish went to Billy Bauknight with a nice East Lake fish going 4.40 lbs. Congrats to all the winners.
Do not forget We “WILL NOT” meet at the restaurant next month. October tournament will be on Lake Okeechobee out of Scott Driver. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
Alligator round two, For the second time in four tournaments Alligator lake was this months lake of choice. What was always a tough place to catch fish has started to turn into pretty good fishery. The last three times here it took over 16 lbs to win. Today was a little short of that but not by much. 28 boats set out to tackle her and most were able to get a few bites. The rain held off and with the wind it was a pretty nice day to be on the water. Rounding out the money spots in 5th place was Mark Stroop & Chuck Adams with 9.94 lbs. Coming in fourth was Don Callaghan & Darrell Daugherty with 10.07 lbs. 3rd went to Shelton Smith & Kenny Bush with 11.04 lbs. 2nd was Billy Myers & Barry Norton with 12.54 lbs. Top honors go to Tane Crossley & Jake Lewis with 15.10 lbs. Big Fish went to Kenny Bush with a nice fish going 5.74 lbs
Warriors anglers wreck them on Cypress, The third stop this year is on Lake Cypress and even with dirty water and most of the hydrilla being sprayed the fish was very good. The clubs best turn out this year brought 28 boat to the lake and the Warriors anglers managed to find a catch 124 bass , 23 limits,13 limits over 10 lbs, 6 fish over 5 lbs for a total of 288.05 lbs of fish. Great job guys. With three tournaments in the book the points race is starting to tighten up. Should be another good one. Rounding out the money in 5th place was Don Callaghan & Darrell Daugherty with 14.90 lbs. 4th place went to Daren McDermott & Pete Batusis with 16.86 lbs. 3nd goes to Dennis & Justin French with 16.94 lbs.First runner up was Brandon Pascual & Brent Carter with 18.99 lbs Top Honors go the team of Vince Edwards & Dale Hayes with a great bag of fish topping the scales at 20.74 lbs. Big Fish went to Brandon Pascual with a hog going 7.78 lbs.
The votes are in and overwhelmingly this years October lake will be Lake Okeechobee and the event will be a two day. May be a good idea to contact a hotel as soon a you can so you can assure you have a room.
HOT! HOT! HOT !, With June come the heat. The dog days of summer are upon us. The morning started off pretty nice with a lite breeze and a break from sunny to partly cloudy. Around mid morning some turn up the heat and the last half of the day was a cooker. East Lake Toho was this months lake of choice. She has been pretty stingy lately but the fishing was not to bad. All but a couple of teams manage to catch some fish and most catching a limit. Warriors anglers managed 118 bass,22 limits,2 fish over 6lbs for total of 203.78 lbs of bass. Pretty good for a tough day. Rounding out the money spots in 5th place was New team of Chris & Matt with 8.78 lbs. Coming in 4th was Kenny Croft & Rick Franklin with 9.00 lbs. Third place went to Don Hinman & Kenny with 9.54 lbs. First runner up was Brian Fish & Kevin Stone with 11.18 lbs Top honors go to the RED HOT team of Shelton Smith & Kenny Bush with nice bag tipping the scales at 14.32 lbs.
