In a near perfect weather setting, despite an obvious fish kill involving bluegill and crappie, the bass fishing at West Boggs turned out to be better than expected for the 5th tournament of the season.
Tristan Wagler took the win with an impressive bag of good fish. They had a total weight of 18.35 lb including the big fish of th enight at 4.84 lb. That bag puts them in the lead for the biggest bag of the season.
Chase Hall and Cameron Lane kept up their consistant streak finishing 2nd with a limit that weighed 13.98. In the last 3 tournaments, Chase and Cameron have a win and two 2nd place finishes.
The race for the points championship is heating up. With 3 tournaments left, Ron and Sam Maxwell have gained on Gary and Nate Higgins, closing the gap to 4 points.
Ten points back from the lead, the teams of Mark Miller and Luke Detweiler, David Jones and Brian Hochstettler, and Bobby Eads are all in a three way tie for 3rd.
Special thanks to our chaplain, Ron Maxwell, who consistantly brings a powerful message and challenges all of us before the tournament starts at every event.
Our next tournament night is May 30.
