We had a little rain wet down the 40 teams but all in all it was a right nice day. Air temps ranged from 72 degrees in
the am on up to 86 at the 3pm weighin. Water temps averaged about 83 degrees. Winds were nonexistent in the am
up to about 5 mph in the afternoon. The bite was pretty light today but the some teams managed to bring in a couple
of hands full of 4 to 7 pounders!

The team of David Hall & Kevin Farley won 1st Place weighing in 5 bass at 23.66 lbs., 2nd Place Big Fish (6.69 lbs.)
