Ever-Bloom Tournament

Date: 
Saturday, May 15, 2010 - 6:00am to 2:00pm
Location: 
Lake Evergreen

The second Strike King Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail event was held on Evergreen Lake May 15. Two anomolies occurred.....1. Weather forecasts called for zero percent chance of rain. It rained cats and dogs and rain soaked anglers were looking for a weatherman to punch in the nose, and 2. A single day "boat on the lake" record was also broken with more boats than you can shake a stick at. This number should help the park keep up with budget reductions. The poor crappie were outnumbered.

Tough fishing was the norm and only 13 bass were weighed but Brian McDaniel and Steve Parks found 4 bass weighing 12.70 to take the victory. They were followed closely by Terry Brown and Mike Blake with 4 weighing 12.12 pounds.

In third place and winners of the Duckett Fishing rods were Dusty Whitacre and Bryan Estes with 6.03 pounds. They also had Sam Leman Big Bass of 6.03 pounds. This is big bass of the year so far.

In fourth place were Father and Son team of Randy and Hunter Ferguson with 2 bass weighing 4.26 pounds. 5th place was held down by Rick McMahan and Matt Rice with 1 bass weighing 3.18 pounds. They received the Strike King Top to Bottom tackle bag.

Thirteen teams did not weigh a bass at this tournament, a rarity, as these are the best anglers in Central Illinois.

Brown and Blake are leading the Sam Leman Heavyweight of the Year standings with 14.12 pounds after 2 events.

The next Strike King EverBloom Tournament will be on Lake Bloomington May 29th. Please pre-pay your entry at Wired2Fish Headquarters before the tournament to guarantee your spot.
