UPDATE
June 28-29 Lake Poygan ......Wind, wind and more wind.........again!!

Well once again the weatherman had our tournament weekend in his sight. Warnings of heavy rain, storms and thunderstorms with lightning had everyone preparing for a wet weekend. Happily, and once again, the weatherman was wrong.   

The Saturday tournament began with the 5:30 safety briefing and cooler temps. While there was rain in the forecast, no rain came.  Most club members found fishing encouraging early in the morning, but the bite slowed significantly by 9:00AM. Temperatures were in the low-mid 60's, winds 10+mph with gusts to 15mph. Water temperatures were consistent 77 - 79 degrees.  

There were reasonable bags of fish brought to the scale for weighing. With no limits reported by anyone, the tournament pace was set by Joe Waite in first, Derek Andre in a solid second, and Larry VanDyck in  third.   

The group enjoyed another great BBQ with lots of laughs, ribbing and challenges for the next days fishing, and then it was off for a short nights sleep.

Sunday greeted the club members with much better weather, little gusts of wind and a beautiful sunrise.  However with water temps still in the upper 70's, the fishing remained challenging. this was only complicated by winds in the upper teens, gusting to mid 20's.

The tournament upset came when  the previous days third place finisher Larry VanDyck brought a 12 pound basket of LMB to the scale. And the frustration and envy felt by some was magnified when  Larry said in passing that he caught all of his fish before 7:15AM. Second Place was tied up when second year club member Derek Andre brought 3LMB, 1 Rock Bass and 1 White Bass to the scales. Third place was rounded out by Saturday's first place finisher Joe Waite
.  
Congratulation to everyone that came out and fished.  Be sure to check the Angler of the Year standings to see the mid-year standing of all club members.

Information about the 1st Annual Presidents Cup Tournament will be posted soon.
