Ever-Bloom Tournament

Location: 
Lake Bloomington

Bad Weather Again!

Seems like every Rapala Ever-Bloom Tournament has Mother Nature's bad list. Cold temps, high north winds and over 2 inches of rain followed a 80 degree day presenting miserable fishing conditions for the second Rapala Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail event presented by Sam Leman Automotive Group at Lake Bloomington.

No hill for a climber as the father and son team of Randy and Hunter Ferguson had a limit of bass weighing 12.92 to take home the victory. Jamie Maisenbacher and Brad Norris, also with a limit of fish finished second with 11.54 pounds. In third were Duckett Fishing Rod winners Aaron and Mike Therien with 11.01 pounds.

Sam Leman Big Bass went to Rick McMahan and Matt Rice with a 5.76. They received a new set of digital Rapala scales and cash for big bass. They also took over the Sam Leman Heavyweight race by 2 hundredths over Mike Blake and Terry Brown. McMahan and Rice have 17.18 and Blake and Brown have 17.16 going into the third event of the year May 30 at Evergreen. Big Bass of the Year is still held by Rod Wallace and Pat Welch with a 8.65 pounder.

The next event is May 30 at Lake Evergreen. We will fish from 6 am to 2:30 pm that day. All entries have to be paid and number drawn prior to 5:45 am tournament day for entry at all events. Paying in advance secures your position.

One other note: Entries for the next Lake Bloomington Event will be taken at the staging area near the ramp at Bloomington. Pull through for boat check and draw of numbers prior to unloading will occur there. No exceptions!

Thanks to everyone who is fishing the Rapala EverBloom Tournament Trail. Its shaping up as a record season. For more information and a total list of anglers go to www.everbloom.us.
