Newsletter – June 2016
We had 14 teams participate in our May Tournament at Lake Kissimmee. We had 9 teams with 5 fish limits.
There were 8 fish over 4 Lbs brought to the scales. Cannot say what the fish were hitting or the patterns associated. I had no clue, weighing-in only 3 fish. However, as usual there were teams that figured it out.
The team of James Padgett & Jonathan Padgett came in with a nice bag of 19.13 Lbs, which was the winning tournament weight. They also had a 5.56Lb kicker in their sack.
The team of Greg Remor & Greg Wilkerson secured second place with 18.54 Lbs. They had the
Big Fish of the tournament a nice 8.23 Lb pig and also an additional 7+ Lb fish within their bag.
The team of Donnie Bianco & Tuck Pinchin placed third with a 17.75 Lb bag. They also placed third in May’s tournament. They are on a hot streak !!!
