No to Newton

With little notice our tournament was moved from Newton Lake to Stewart Lake.  This is a new lake for us so not many people had even fished it before.  Little did we know that our 26 members fishing that day would see some club records broken.  We tied our most limits caught with 4 - John Reeves, Ron Ulrich, Doug Miller, and Tim Miller.  We set new records for keepers caught total with 32 and total weight for the tournament at 54lb 13oz.  Our eventual winner set the records for heaviest 3 fish total at 7lb 10oz and most keepers caught by one member.  Here's the finishing top ten.

1st-  John Reeves  3 fish  7lb 10oz (caught 7 total for 12lb 7oz)

2nd-  Ron Ulrich  3 fish  6lb 0oz

3rd-  Doug Miller  3 fish  5lb 4oz

4th-  Tim Miller  3 fish  5lb 1oz

5th-  John Kenney II  2 fish  4lb 4oz

6th-  Sean McCarthy  1 fish  3lb 6oz (lunker)

7th tie-  Bill Marshall  1 fish  2lb 12oz

Danny Kidd  2 fish  2lb 2oz

9th-  Anthony DeValerio  2 fish  2lb 9oz

10th-  Rich Moule  1 fish  1lb 14oz
