The results are in and, Lay Lake large mouth bass have officially decided to self quarantine. Most of them anyway...
Pops (David George) called it before the tournament. "You know the virus is affecting your business when you have to go fish to make some side change". That he did. David took first place on the boater side with 5 Spots coming across the scales at 13.8 lb's. Lee Byrd brought in 5 fish for 9.95 lb's for second place on what set up to be a weird day of fishing. Lee did his damage using 6'lb test and a slider head (I had to google it). New comer Kent Glass finished up 3rd on the angler side with 9.02 lb's and a Big Head that weighed 4.22 lb's proving that he can be consistent. With two events now in the books Kent is holding the number one spot in Boater-AOY with 194 points, with Charles Rosato in a close second at 192 points. Now if we can just get Kent to show up on time we may have something ;) Jeff Corley took BF of the day with a 4.57 stud.
On the CO-Angler side Shawn Price once again put the hammer down, by taking 1st place fishing out of the back of Sonny's boat with 5.68 lb's. Kyle Kimbrell took a very close 2nd place with 5.34 lb's, and Jeremy Carter finished 3rd with an even closer 5.3 lb's. The CO's AOY race is Shawn, Jeremy, and Kyle first, second, and third.
In other news, I would like to extend a BBC welcome to Charles Nowling who was voted in yesterday at the scales. Welcome to the club Charles. ALSO we will not be meeting next week due to COVID19.
As you guys know, there is just a short 13 more days until out next tournament held on April 4th. This was originally designated as a 2 day event between either Eufaula or Pickwick. This will be a 1 day event now, if we are able to still host this event at all. Scott is monitoring things closely and will keep everyone posted on the matter, so stay tuned in.
