Our 2nd tournament of the season started with an amazing meeting at Palestine Baptist Church, They served an awesome meal for our anglers. We had Chris Wells the BASS Champlain speak at our Friday night meeting and it was amazing. we had two folks indicate they prayed to accept Christ as there saviour. Thats a testiment to the message God provided Chris to speak. We are so blssed to have him assoicated with the Fishers of Men. God bless you Chris and we will definetly be excited to ask you to come back and speak in the future.
Our tournament blasted off at safe light which was around 7:30 am on Saturday so we extended the fishing hours to 3:30pm to assure everyone got 8 hours in for the day. at the end of the day Tony McCraw and Penny McCraw brought home the win with 15.47 in 4 fish.
