Cold and windy weather did not hamper those fishing D & R Sports Bass Tournament October 4th. The weather definitely seperated the men from the boys.
Fourty-one teams caught a mixture of large and small mouth bass. Twenty-six teams managed to catch their 5 fish limit. One hundred sixty-eight bass were caught and released for a total weight of 424.19 pounds. Average fish was 2.52 pounds.
Team #50, Matt Gorham and Aaron Feeback have to split the boat/motor/trailer first prize after catching the top weight of 17.24 pounds. So close, Neil VandeBiezen and Ken Plencner weighed in 17.12 pounds, one small mouth at 4.70 pounds.
The Big Bass for the Tournament was a 4.80 pound Smallmouth. Everyone was happy to get out of the weather.
Don't give up on the Salmon. Although many are turning dark, fresh silver ones are still coming.
There's also the opportunity to catch CoHo, Brown Trout and some Steelhead have started. When fishing salmon spawn any of them bite. Spawn bags should be your first choice for bait.
Gabe Maddox knows how to catch Big fish. He's holding
a Manistee River Coho and beautiful Brown.
