Not a whole lot to report from yesterday, we saw some walleye pulled out in the morning, and then that wind seemed to shut the bite down. Most the fish we saw yesterday were pulled out of Jerome, but Bluegrass and Buttonwood should also be decent spots today. We did also start to see some white bass brought in, no crazy numbers yet, but they are making their way in. The next week or so should be a good mixture of both walleye and white bass, as well as a variety of other fish being caught, which always makes for a fun time.

Tournament Results:

1st: Anthony Yeager – 9.56lbs

2nd: Chad Sherman – 9.01lbs

3rd: Owen Schuum: 8.06lbs

Congratulations to our winners, and a huge thank you to all of those who participated. We hope y’all liked the change of style, and enjoyed the extended time period to fish! We will be hosting our Customer Appreciation Day // Tournament Award Day on April 22nd – we will be providing food and drinks for everyone. Stop by, it is always a good time(:
