Wilson, A Pleasant Surprise in Some Unpleasant Weather

We had 29 anglers, 22 of whom weighed in fish.  The rainy conditions didn't stop most of the club fish fishing right up to the end because so many fish were being caught.  Pickerel dominated the catch but all the weight was going to the largemouth.  Here's the top ten:

1st-  Bill Powell  3lb 7oz bass

2nd-  Steve Anderson  2lb 10oz bass

3rd-  Jim McHale  2lb 9oz bass

               John Reeves  2lb 7oz pickerel

7th tie-  Pat Karcher  1lb 10oz bass

               Sean McCarthy  1lb 10oz bass

9th-  Marc Sano  1lb 7 oz pickerel

10th-  John Sullivan  1lb 6oz  bass 

Carnegie Was Record Breaking

While we don't keep official club tournament records here are a few that are mostly likely the tops.  18 of the 27 anglers on hand weighed in keepers.  There were 52 keepers weighed in in total.  There were 8 limits caught (one of which didn't make the top ten).  Two of the guys caught 7 keepers each.  But the one record that was a definite was the winning total for the day and his margin over the 2nd guy:

1st-  Bill Marshall   3 fish   11lbs 9oz (4lb 11oz lunker, 7 keepers total)

2nd- Mark Kordes   3 fish   7lbs 8oz

3rd- Rodney Ulrich   3 fish   7lbs 4oz 

4th- Jim McHale   3 fish   6lbs 6oz

5th- John Reeves   3 fish   5lbs 14oz (7 keepers)

6th- Sean McCarthy   3 fish   4lbs 9oz (5 keepers)

7th- Steve Anderson   2 fish   4lbs 8oz

8th- Ditmar Gagnon   3 fish   4lbs 7oz

9th- Ron Ulrich   2 fish   4lbs 2oz

10th- Pat Karcher   2 fish   3lbs 11oz 

Rainbow Lake Was Grassy But That's Where They Hide

It was overcast and rained for a little bit.  The grass was thick but the fish were biting early.  We had a few of the same names as the first couple tournaments finish in the top ten again so the race is on.  24 fishermen caught 40 keepers.

1st-  Steve Anderson  3 bass  8lbs 12oz  (3lb 15oz lunker and 7 total keepers)

2nd-  Bill Marshall  3 bass  5lb 9oz  (4 keepers)

3rd-  Ron Ulrich  3 bass  5lb 6oz (4 keepers)

4th-  John Reeves  2 bass  4lbs 9oz

5th-  Jim McHale  3 bass  3lbs 12oz

6th-  Jim Gauntt  2 bass  3lbs 2oz

7th-  Ed Karcher  2 bass  3lbs

8th-  John Sullivan  2 bass  2lbs 12oz

9th-  Sean McCarthy  2 bass  2lbs 11oz
