The Roostertales Bass Club (roostertalesbassclub.com) had its first tournament of the year- at Canyon Lake on Saturday 1/14/17. Seventeen boats fished. Five limits were weighed. Seven boats did not weigh fish. This is a club of very good fishermen and women so this attests to the tough bite on Saturday. Conditions were cloudy with rain spitting through the day. Water temp was around 56 degrees. The tourney was won by the husband/ wife team of Redding and Redding with 10.05#. We know Michele catches most of the fish! Second place went to the father/ son team of Swann and Swann with 9.98# and in third place was last year’s Club Champs Petersen and Zahn with 8.89#. Big fish was 4.87# by the team of Coleman/ Allen. Fish were primarily caught with drop shot and spoons. The big fish was caught with a swim bait.
Our next Tournament is on Saturday 2/11 at Apache Lake. The pre-spawn fishing should be great. The March tournament will be at Havasu. We will be meeting at BassPro at 7 pm on Monday 2/6 prior to the Apache Tourney on the second Floor in the “Camping” meeting room. Check our website for any updates. Come out and meet our Club members at the next meeting and consider whether you would like to join our Club as we are looking to fill our 2017 tournament season roster.
