Thanks to New Hope Baptist Church for hosting our first team tournament of the 2020 season. We were served a meal of sloppy joes, vegetables and dip, and cookies. Special music was provided by members of the church and fellow fisherman Brian Maijala presented us with the devotion. He challenged each of us! We had 54 teams register for the tournament and 103 individuals present at the meeting.
On Saturday, the day started on the cold side with some gusts of wind. This made fishing difficult for many of our teams. Our winners, Donny Beck and Tony Harvey found 29.06 pounds of fish with a big fish weighing in at 7.0 pounds. Jim Kelley and Mike Waggoner followed in second place with 20.71 pounds and Brandon Looney and Austin Adcock followed very close behind them with 20.68 pounds.
