The Roostertales Bass Club had their monthly one-day tourney at Saguaro on Saturday April 5. Water temperatures were around 65 degrees. There were lots of bass on the beds although off and on wind made visibility difficult at times; lots of fry in the water; and lots of fish roaming the shallows. Fish were caught various ways, but sight fishing dominated. First place went to Humphrey and Karl with an #18.59 pound bag and second big fish of 7#. Second place went to Budlinger and Marshall with a bag of 15.85# and tourney big fish of 8.96#. Our next tournament is on Roosevelt Lake- Saturday May 10. If you have interest in fishing with us, come to our Club meeting at Bass Pro on May 5 at 7 pm (upstairs meeting room), or contact us via our website (Roostertalesbassclub. com).
