Ever-Bloom Tournament

Date: 
Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 6:00am to 2:00pm
Location: 
Lake Bloomington

The first event of the Strike King EverBloom Tournament Trail is in the books. Cold front conditions following an awesome week, weather wise, caused a tough bite and no limits were brought to the scales. Expectations were high but the results were weak in the opener.

Perrenial hammers on Lake Bloomington, Fred Myers and Ken Petersen, brought two fish to the scales weighing 7.51 pounds to seal the victory. As usual, they told us they caught them on jigs and chatterbaits. Might be a good idea to come up with another story guys for the next event. Their big bass weighed 4.12 pounds.

In second place was Dave Whalen and Mark Flynn with 2 bass weighing 4.71 pounds. Third place and Duckett Fishing Rods winners were Jamie Maisenbacher and Dennis Bierbaum with one fish weighing 4.61 pounds. That was also Sam Leman Big Bass of the Tournament. Thanks to new rod sponsor Duckett Fishing for some exceptional rods for this award.

Rounding out the top 5 were Butch Ridgeway and Larry Hagar with 3.73 pounds and James Hurt with 3.33 pounds. Hurt and Stark won the Strike King Top to Bottom Lure Package for this event.

Myers and Petersen have taken a early lead in the Sam Leman Heavyweight of the Year Standings.

The next event is on May 15 at Lake Evergreen and anglers who fished this event should pay early to secure a spot. You can do that by dropping it by Wired2Fish Headquarters. We had nearly a full field and are anticipating several more teams for the Evergreen.
