The next meeting is September 21, 2016 at the Wing House of Wesley Chapel at 6:30 PM. 5510 Post Oak Blvd, Wesley Chapel, FL 33544. The next tournament is September 24, 2016 at The Harris Chain out of the Buzzard Beach Ramp. We are always looking for more boaters and non-boaters, so if you are interested in fishing come to our next meeting.
Randy Hoedt won 1st place with 5 fish weighing 11.26 pounds. Randy was pitching a trick worm with a light sinker under docks and grass edges. Sean Hoedt got 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 8.19 pounds. Sean was throwing a ribbon tail worm around grass edges and slowly working it over the laid down grass. Doug Grey, who Sean was fishing with, took 3rd place with 5 fish for a total weight of 7.74 pounds. Doug was flipping grass with a junebug curl tailed worm. He was also catching fish with the curl tailed worm off of docks. Tony Bejano had the big bass of 3.51 pounds and that helped him take 4th place. There was a total of 5 fish in the 3 pound range weighed in. Randy, Sean, and Doug were the only members that weighed in a 5 fish limit. The bite seemed to be better in the morning than the afternoon when it was hot out with no wind.
We would like to thank the members that contributed to our raffle which continues to grow towards our Classic fund.
