Sixth Event - Sixth Winners

On a beautiful sun-kissed Saturday in August, the sixth event of the 2008 Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail on Lake Evergreen was captured by Domenic Theison and Tom Cassel.

Even though the weather was ideal, the bass fishing was tough. Cassel and Theison ground out a limit of bass that weighed in at 11:02 lbs and according to Tom, they even culled one fish.

Second place went to the team of Loren Peterson and Mike Blake with 4 fish that totaled 10:31 lbs. Peters and Blake had 4 keepers by 9:00 am but could not corral another in the remaining 5 hours.

In third, and winning two permium Setyr rods, were Richard (Call Me Dusty) Whitacre and Bryan Estes. Whitacre and Estes captured three bass that weighed 9.35 lbs, including the big bass of the event that tipped the scales at 5.34 lbs.

Fourth place went to seasoned anglers Greg Bayles and Dave Norris. Rounding out the top 5 was the team of Andy Wegner and Aaron (Triple X) Geherer. They won the Strike King One Out of the Money bags.

Theison and Cassel's win marked the sixth different team to win the six events on the 2008 trail to date. Parity is alive and well on the Ever-Bloom scene.

Patters varied greatly on this day with teams flipping plastics, casting crankbaits, Carolina rigging lizards and Senkos, and even tossing topwaters.

The winners said they worked hard for six keeper fish and caught 3 in a span of one hour between 11:00 am and 12:00 pm. Two came on a buzzbait! Peters and Blake hooked their fish on large worms, 1/2 oz jig and a white crankbait. Dusty and Brian's large fish came to them via a Zoom Brush Hog pitched into 8-10 feet of water.

Congrats to the top five. The next event is set for August 30th on Lake Bloomington and the Sam Leman Auto Group's Heavy Weight of the Year race is tightening up with Ken Petersen and Fred Myers still in the lead by approximately 6 pounds.

See you there.
