~~Bryant and Channell win Douglas!
Story by Steve Jennings
Saturday morning the Fishers of Men gang awoke to clear skies and warm breeze blowing across Douglas Lake. Ronny Jones gave a short devotional before blast- off and shortly there after that all 32 boats were on the way to their favorite fishing spot.
At the end of the day it was Tommy Bryant and Wes Channell that came back to the scales with the most weight. This talent team came to the scales with five fish limit weighing in at 15.40. They also had the big fish of the tournament a 5.03 lbs. largemouth bass. Tommy stated that he wanted to give all the glory to God for this win. This team used some of the knowledge that Tommy’s Dad had shared with him since he was a young boy fishing on Douglas Lake. This team fished deeper water focusing on muddy points. They used several different baits to catch their winning back of fish. Tommy and Wes are sponsored by Integrity Roofing and Exteriors.
Second place went to Ronny Jones and Bailey Fain who came back with 5 fish hitting the scales at 14.68 pounds. Ronny reported fishing midway back in coves off the main lake. This used a chatter bait and jig to catch their fish from bush and rocks.
Third place went to Rod Garrett and Paul Rogers. This knowable team had a nice bag of bass weighing in at 14.16 pounds. Paul reported fishing the mid part of the lake using a jig and tube in water three to twenty feet deep.
Fourth place went to the father and son team of Chris and Mason Sexton. Mason is on of our youngest fishermen and he and his Dad are competitive on any lake they launch their boat. This team came back with 13.84 pounds of bass.
Our next tournament will be held on June 6 with the tournament going out of Lakeside Resort on Watts Bar Lake. Hopefully we will get to have a church service on Friday night but at the time it that is uncertain. I will keep everyone posted as information becomes available. We will have our fourth event on June 20th out of the TVA Canal Ramp in Lenoir City. Kingston Pike Baptist Church will be the host church for the Friday Night Meeting if we get to have the meeting.
