Our Chaplain Robert Templin brought the message out of the book of Nehemiah. He talked about the wall that Nehemiah helped rebuild. He asked us what the walls were in our lives that keeps us from serving our Lord. We had 5 recommitments. Thanks Brother Robert for another good message.
We had 26 teams to fish Lake O The Pines with 17 teams coming in with a limit.
It was a great day to be on the lake with the temperature in the low 60’s at blast off and the low 80’s at weigh in. The wind was never a problem, just enough to give us a little breeze.
Our 2nd place team was Jason Parker & Jeff Linville with 5 fish that weighed 21.64 lbs. They won $725.50 throwing crank baits & Texas rig worms.
Coming in 3rd was Team Tyler Ford, David Irwin & Ronnie Glover with 5 fish that weighed 20.64 lbs. They won $486.50 catching pre-spawn bass in 8ft of water on Texas rig soft plastics.
The 4th place team was Eric Leuschner & Coy Spencer. They had 5 fish that weighed 18.94 lbs. This won them $356.00.
The 5the place team was Shawn Wildt & Tommy Renfro. They had 5 fish that weighed 18.74 lbs. This won them $211.00.
WE raffled off a Custom Rod made by Jerry Abercombie, and made $72.00 with it. With this money we paid an extra place. The team of Tom Ward & Garry Winton came in 6th with 5 fish that weighed 17.80 lbs and won gas money for the next tournament. David Pace won the Custom made Rod.
The Big Bass of the tournament was caught by the team of Dennis Morris & Tom Blake. It weighed 7.40 lbs and won them a check for $156.00.
