Ever-Bloom Tournament

Date: 
Saturday, May 16, 2009 - 6:00am to 2:00pm
Location: 
Lake Bloomington

Another tough weather day for the Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail. Week 1 was, as many remember, cold, windy and rainy. That tournament was won by Jerry Martoglio and Steve Anderson with the lowest winning weight in Ever-Bloom history with two fish weighing 5.36 lbs. They also had big bass of 3.19 pounds.

This weekend's event was a mirror image of the first event. Cold temps, misty rain that gave away to bluebird skies and heavy northwest winds. Winds were estimated at 30 mph but 8 teams still managed to catch bass on Lake Doomington. Several anglers noted that they caught numerous 10-12 inch bass and several also had walleyes. Problem with that is we were searching for 15" bass and walleye do not count. They do taste great after sitting in hot grease however!

Brian "BKM" McDaniel and youthful Drew Packman had a great day and found 3 great keeper bass weighing 11.73 pounds. They also had big bass of 5.46 lbs. They fished shallow pockets. Great job guys.

In second with 4 bass weighing 7.96 lbs was effervescent angler Larry Andris and "Cookie Man" Andy Wegner. I am sure Ron Long's career is in jeopardy since Wegner did so well. We will see!

Fast Freddy Myers and Kenny "Mr. P" Petersen got third with 4 bass weighing 7.48 pounds.

Don't forget the next Ever-Bloom is on Evergreen May 30 and we will be fishing from 5 am to 1 pm.

McDaniel and Packman lead the AOY race with 11.73 pounds after 2 events.
