Wow what a great start to the season, We want to thank Palestine Baptist Church and Quest Ministries for the great venue and meal they provided.

Our speaker was Robert Day the CEO fo Patrick Henry Family Services. He gave an awesome tesitimony about his life and what his passion is for familys needing help in the comon wealth. Patrick Henry Family Services is also one of our new sponsors this year and there partnership is invaluable to our division. We gladly welcome them into the Fishers of Mens family.

Our tournament consisted of 38 teams competing for 1st place, we paid out seven spots, and over $4,425.00, which included Big Bass and Bonus Bucks.

Our morning started out a warm 55 degrees and some what foggy, but by the time blast off came at 6:45am the fog was gone at our ramp and we were able to blast off safely. At the end of the day the team of Dwain Bever and Michael Brogan hauled in a catch of 17.79 pounds with a 6.77 lb kicker to take the top honors and total purse worth $2,047.50, which included 1st place over all, 1st place bonus bucks and Big Bass honors. Not bad for 1 day at the office for this new team to Fishers of Men.
