Lake Ouachita Tournament
The first tournament of year for Sherwood Bass Club took place at Lake Ouachita on February 28. The teams were greeted at the ramp with 25 degrees and snow. After a delayed start to the day due to a icy ramp, the teams set off all knowing the fishing would be tough. But at the end of the day, 1 team found the winning pattern as Doug Thompson and Hoyt Akins bought 14.47 lbs to the scales for the win.
1st Place: Doug Thompson and Hoyt Akins said they caught their fish on jigging spoons.
2nd place went to the Team of Jeff Stevens and Kipp Freeman who had 14.19 lbs and said they caught their fish on a A-Rig.
3rd place went to Matt Greer and Kevin Thompson who caught their fish on jigs, crank baits, and jerk baits. They had a weight of 13.56 lbs
Balance of the Top ten were:
4. Greg Gulledge/Jimmy Barnes 8.34 lbs
5. Gary Hubble/Joey Korte 7.84 lbs
6. Johnny Hatcher/Byron Towner 7.34 lbs
7. Brent Burker/Anthoy Wright 7.26 lbs
8. Rob Walker/Rony Jones 6.47 lbs
9. Nathan Howell/Chuck Wisdom 5.81.lbs
10. Ken Kacharek 5.42 lbs
Big bass of the day was a 4.82 pounder caught by Jeff Stevens and Kipp Freeman
It is the interpretation of the Sherwood Bass Club board that the word trolling also encompasses “strolling and drift fishing”. So with this said, NO TROLLING, STROLLING, OR DRAFT Fishing will be allowed during tournament hours.
Only ONE casting, spin cast, or spinning rod and reel may be used at any one time. All casts must be completed before making a cast with another rod.
