The SC Upstate TEAM SERIES had there 2nd Event on LAKE RUSSELL on Feb 29th with 43 boats.
HOSTED by ELBERTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
THANK YOU so much for your support, and making this event a success.
A special thanks to Leslie Friedmond for her enthusiasm and hard work to coordinate the weekend. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!
This Friday night meeting was a little different as we had some special music provided by Jim Wingate and Friends. They picked a few and sang a few. Thanks guys for coming out to support.
The meal was provided by the Elbert County Salvation Army.
Jamie Calloway of Dewey Rose made us laugh and gave us all a good hard look at how much God loves us. We all need to understand that without God, we are NOT going to find what we're lookin for. SO many people have "heard" the message about Jesus, but many still don't make the connection between knowing "ABOUT" Jesus to "KNOWING" Jesus. It is our prayer that YOU make that connection and Surrender to Christ TODAY!! 2 folks at the meeting indicated that they made a First time profession of Faith, and several asked for Prayer. Praise God for his work in the hearts of our anglers and their families.
Saturday morning proved to be a bit chilly and windy, but at least the sun was out in the upstate. Anglers blasted out of Richard B Russell State park, and ventured away from the muddy waters to find those ellusive bass. It was a tough day for most, but several teams had a really GREAT day catching more than 40 fish. Way to go guys!
Bringing in the money bag was Jason Snyder and Jason Skinner with an impressive 17.98 lb bag, and a 4.61 lb kicker. They had a pretty good payday as they not only won FIRST place, but also BIG FISH, 1st Place Bonus Bucks, and FIRST PLACE CAST FOR CASH!!! A total winnings of $3,450 !!
Fishers of Men would like to thank all of our fine sponsors;
