It's Official

Our 2016 Angler of the Year is Bill Powell.  With one tournament left, no one can catch him in the points race.  there is plenty of room for anglers to move around in the rest of the standings.  And still time to win Big Bass or Pickerel of the Year.  Keep on casting!

Fall Classic on a Windy Malaga

With 18 anglers fishing for major tournament points, Malaga Lake was overcast and windy.  That didn't stop us from catching 17 keepers, a bunch of short bass, pickerel, perch and even sunfish (Ed).  Here are the results in one of our tightest races yet with the top 4 separated by only 1lb 1oz:
