This day was one of those raw miserable days with rain all day and temps not getting out of the mid 40s. The wind started out at 10 mph from the NE and by mid morning was at 20 mph out of the N. The temperature started at 42 degrees and was at 44 degrees for the 3pm weigh-in. The lake was clear and full. Twelve anglers fished despite the weather.

First place, Phillip Anderson caught 5 fish weighing 11.59 pounds. He caught his fish with a jig fishing rocks and a spinnerbait on the upper part of the lake. Phillip won first place and first place option for a total of $466.

Jonathan Botts was second with 5 fish weighing 10.15 pounds. His fish came on a drop shot rig in the mid lake area in 20 to 30 feet of water. Jonathan took home $232 for second place and second place option.

Phil Morris took the big fish pot with a 4.29 pound spotted bass. He won $60 for Big Fish.

The most productive lures for this one were spinnerbaits, crankbaits, jigs, shakey heads, spoons and drop shot rigs. The big fish was taken on a spinnerbait.
