The Same Ol' Parvin

Two things different about this year's visit to Parvin:  1) The amount of anglers we had fishing that day.  35 members and 2 guests  2) The beginning of the day weather.  It was beautiful.  Sunny, clear and no wind.  But anyone that has fished Parvin this time of year knows that didn't last and no one caught fish.

1st place - John Kenney 2 - largemouth - 1lb 15oz

2nd place - Rodney Ulrich - pickerel - 1lb

3rd place (honorary bc it was only 13.5 inches) - Timmy McCarthy

New Theme for the Year . . . Bad Majors

We had our second major of the year and it was at Union Lake.  The weather was overcast and the temp was bearable but the water was higher than normal and very warm.  We didn't catch a lot of keepers but the results really affected our Angler of the Year standings.  Only one person in or top 10 placed in this tournament, #10 Bill Marshall.  He was our winner for the day which moved him into 1st overall.  Also Rich Moule and Pat Karcher came in 2nd and 3rd which pushed them into the same positions for the year.  Tied for 3rd was Kenny Karcher Jr which moved him into the 8th spot up from 36 to be our biggest mover.  Here are the results:

1st-  Bill Marshall  1 bass  2lbs 9oz (lunker obviously)

2nd- Rich Moule  1 bass  2lbs 3oz

3rd tie-  Kenny Karcher Jr and Pat Karcher  1 bass each  1lb 10oz

5th-  Steve Anderson  1 bass  1lb 4oz
