Bohemia River - Upper Bay Results: May 12, 2012
RETER & WOODRUFF take their 2nd tournament in a row with 24.26 lbs.
Thanks to 1st Assembly of God in Elkton, Maryland hosting the Friday night meeting for our 3rd tournament. What a great meal provided by them... pulled beast. Yes, pulled beast. It was a mixture of pork & venison. Best I've ever had. It was served with steak fries & corn. Pie was our deliscious dessert.
Our message was given by one of our competitors - Bob Moody. Bob spoke on scriptures from the book of James chapter 3: 4 & 5 And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. Two new recommitments came from Bob's testimony Friday. I am blessed to be surrounded by great men.
Today's tournament turned out as one of the best tournaments I've seen here on the Upper Chesapeake Bay for a Fishers of Men tournament. Paul Reter & Michael Woodruff brought in a 5 fish limit for 24.26 lbs. claiming 1st Place, 1st Big Bass & 1st Place Bonus Bucks - good for $1122.00. I guess you can't ask for a better day than that.
