AUGUST 2 - 3 Mississippi River.......Beautiful Weather...Great Fishing


What a terrific trip and fantastic fishing for our club members trip to the Mississippi River, Pool 13. Multiple fishing tournaments were being held on Pool 13 during our trip. however, there were no shortages of fishing spots or fish.    

The Saturday tournament began with the 5:30AM safety briefing and cooler temps. Rain predictions spotted the forecast throughout the entire weekend, but happily, no rain came during tournament hours. 6:00AM, the roar of outboards and the competition began. Our reigning 2013 Angler of the Year Larry VanDyck headed to 'Larry's Slot' to fill his Bass Limit by 9:00AM, while others headed to sloughs, main river and backwaters. By the end of the day, Pete Trevino secured First Place with a pair of bookend Northerns measuring 27" each. Second place was tied up by Larry VanDyck with a 9 pound basket of Bass. Kevin Newcomer and Dave Patrick tied for 3rd Place.  

Sunday morning seemed to come very early for some. But again, predictions for rain and winds were incorrect. 6:00AM saw the second day start with varied strategies and adjustments from the day before. With very little wind providing even less relief than the day before, temperatures soared and made for a hot and blue sky day of fishing. Once again, 2013 AOY Larry VanDyck secured his limit of bass by 10:00Am, leaving the rest of the club to play catchup for the remainder of the day. And catch up is exactly what some of them did. The days weigh-in left Larry locking up 1st Place with a 12 pound basket of Bass and one Gar for a one pound difference over 2nd Place winner Kevin Newcomer who weighed in 11 pounds of large and smallmouth Bass. 3rd Place was secured by Mik,e Wollenberg.     

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.
