The second event for the Ohio Team Series is complete.
We held our Friday night meeting at the Orange Road Friends Church in Lewis Center, Ohio, which was about a 10 minute drive from the ramp. Thanks to the church for opening their doors and thanks to John Norris for finding us a place to meet. Thanks to our local sponsors for their donations which allowed us to provide a meal of fried chicken, potato salad, macaroni salad, and cole slaw to our fishermen. After the meal our Legacy Chaplain John Norris brought us a message about the importance of the “dash” between our date of birth and death. God has given us a choice on where we will spend eternity based on if we choose to follow Jesus during that time.
After the meal and message we held a short meeting to recognize our sponsors and go over launch and weigh-in process. After the short meeting we handed out raffle and door prizes. The fishermen helped with the clean up and we were all headed to our homes or our rooms by 8:00 p.m.
On Saturday morning 24 boats were launched from the New Galena boat ramp at Alum Creek. There was a chill in the air but it was not raining as it had been during the week. A good weather day was expected and the fishing was reported to be good. The reports of good catches were not just fish tales as we found out when we started weighing fish.
All the boats returned to the dock in time and started bringing us their catches. We had 21 five-fish limits and two teams with four fish in their bags. One of our teams had boat trouble and left early. The team of B.J. Baxter and Todd Thompson were our winners with five smallmouth bass weighing 18.45 lbs. Congratulations to B.J. and Todd for a great catch. Right behind them was the father/son team of Justen and Ty Fain with a limit weighing 17.87 lbs. Third place honors went to Jeff and Rick Jordan who brought a limit to the scales weighing 17.42 lbs. In fourth were Travis McIntosh and Micah Jordan with a limit weighing 16.39 lbs. which included the tournament big bass weighing 4.96 Lbs.
Thanks to all the teams that fished with us and if you did not, you should have. What a great day of fishing in Ohio.
