It started off a chilly morning, but with a rising barometer and clear sky’s it ended up being a beautiful for fishing! We had 31 participating boats that brought in 95 fish weighing 231 pounds. Gary Wilt caught the big big fish of the day weighing in at a even 8 pounds.Gary said he was fishing the east side of the lake south of the long point and just north of trails end fish camp. He was flipping the penicillin reeds using a 3/4 oz blue black medlock jig with a green pumpkin chunk. Speaking to our first place winner,Dave Overstreet, I was told he caught his fish in the water (thinks he’s funny)finally after making him feel guilty he said he was using zoom speed worms most of the day,my response was great and thanks for the info. Apparently I hit a nerve and he decided he couldn’t lie to me informing mehe caughhis last two fish in the last 15 minutes both weighing 5pounds on ,are you ready, a rage space monkey! Regrettably he would not divulge the color😖I tried but no way would he give it up.Overstreet stated he fished around the islands in the reeds and pads just like everyone else he was fortunate to find a sweet spot holing 10 pounds of fish to put him on top for the day

In the fall, crisp peak-season pears or apples are an undeniably delicious way to enjoy this refreshing fruit salad with a nutty Salvadoran seasoning.
