The weather was a little cool at take off, but the wind had laid down considerable from Friday practice day! It was calm early with a slight breeze later on, the water temp. was between 55 -57 degrees with clouds early clearing to full sun by the end. The race is on and teams are moving up and down the points board! The fishing was great! Every team brought in a limit. We had a total of 22 boats, counting both divisions. Ryan Groeteke and Hunter Creson (Sub), started the day on top of the points board, but dropped out of the leader spot due to a faulty gas guage! Aaron Hodges & Jame Bailey came in with 5 weighing 13.21lbs, good enough for 4th, but also, had a 5.43lbs Walleye, which took 1st in JUNK Fish for $90! Keegan Barber & Skyler McGrath brought in a limit, 14.02lbs, finishing 3rd, The team of Chuch Smith & Don Stricklin weighed in 15.06 with a 4.31lb big bass to finish in 2nd place, after zeroing the first two events, this put them back in the race! But it was a repeat for the team of Cledas Manuel & Dave Austin, they defended the Bull Shoals title from 2018 with a bag totaling 17.02lbs, and taking big bass with a 4.39lber! The key to their success was a jig in 10-15' range. Our next event will be on Pomme De Terre on May 11th, Hermitage ramp! Hope to see you there!
