Saturday started off mostly cloudy with temps in the 50's and ended up in the middle 60's with mostly sunny skies. 17 teams launched into the stained water of Lake Springfield looking for the key to unlocking the pattern to take the victory in our second event of the 2019 season. Although the fishing was tough for some, a few teams got the right bites to put together a decent limit of bass and give then a chance at the winners circle. The team that figured it out was Mark Rahn and Jason Stomberg weighing in 17.20lbs which included the Big Bass of the tournament with a Largemouth that weighed 4.73lbs. Not far behind and in 2nd Place Daniel Weikle with his Father James as his sub weighed in 15.45lbs. 3rd Place was last months winners Jim Dietel and Kerry Malone with a limit that weighed 13.25lbs. 4th place team of Joe Digiavonna and Pat Cravens with 11.44lbs.
Immediatley after the weigh-in all the teams were treated to a meal and message. Randy Miller, a friend of the director presented the group with a message about creation and how much God loves us more than the things He created. Randy told about how God gave us His creation to rule over and enjoy. Also how God wants to have a relationship with us through His son Jesus.
