What a fantastic event we had for our second stop of the season!
We were hosted Friday by Mineral Baptist Church, at their fellowship hall, who have been long time supporters of this ministry. The anglers were treated to pork lion, mashed potatoes, green beans and a roll, they even sweetend the deal with brownies and ice cream! We were treated with an acoustic set of worship songs sung by David Clowser.
He was followed by a message from our own Brian Lindamood, Brian spoke about how we put in so much preparation for our tournaments or fishing, but questioned if we put the same amout of preparation in our salvation and also how we have a big God and no matter our problems, He (God) can handle them and already has us covered. Thank you Brain that message it really hit home!
We had a foggy start to a beautiful day on Saturday. After a 35 minute or so delay the teams were led to the main lake and launched one by one. There were some expectations of big bags, as the spawn is heating up, but Lake Anna can be anything but predictable! The team of Coyner and Coyner bested our 31 boat field with a 22.50lb bag and took home over $1300 for their effort! Second place team of Ferk/Ferk had 17.52lbs and took home first place bonus bucks also for a total of $705. Rounding out the money teams were:
3rd: Poirier/Leary 15.82lbs
4th: Whitfield/McMichael 15.43lbs
5th: Sutton/Whittman 14.13
6th: Lindamood 13.76
Big Fish honors went to Perkins/Gren with a 6.50lb stud! The team of Meadows/Meadows took home two Abu Garcia rods as the first out of the money team!
Again I cant thank everyone enough for supporting this trail this year from the teams to the folks helping put the meetings together, Its a blessing to me to watch everyone enjoying themselves! We have quick turn around for our next event which is only two weeks out on May 12th at the Chickahominy river, should be an exciting time for our first river event of the season! See you all there!
