The 13 Fishing Team of Rick and Rod took first place honors this past Tuesday Night with 14.67 lbs and big-bass with a nice 7.38 pound kicker. Second place was the team of Steve and Don with 8.24 lbs and third was Tim and Rich with 6.93 pounds. A dry forecast resulted in a decent mid-summer turn-out with 12 boats. Water temps on Tarpon are climbing back up as they were in the 86 degree range on the main lake Tuesday. The influx of rain water had the temps as low as mid-high 70's in some areas in previous weeks. The Night Tournament Series takes place every Tuesday at 6:00pm to 9:30pm. Show up a half hour prior to get signed up, $30 entry and $5 big-bass. Find out more about Tuesday Night Tournaments here.
Report by Trenton Gilileo:
We had 22 boats with 43 angler go out to battle Lake Kissimmee on Saturday August 8th, 2015 looking for 5 big bass to take the win. Many gave it their all and still fell short from the winning 5 fish stringer of 25.85 lbs but they still came in with great solid bags and we did the entire weigh-in with out a single dead fished weighed in. Most anglers reported they had most the big bites during the early morning hours on top throwing skinny dippers and frogs near or around hydrilla beds or pad fields. When the sun broke through the overcast skies, the bite slowed down. Tons of small short fish were reported caught until the bite picked up later in the day when many anglers caught more solid fish to anchor their bags down for weigh in.
1st place - John Atkisson & Blake Williams 25.85lbs
2nd place - Joshua Dunn & Dustin Oxford 18.90lbs
3rd place - Justin Neal & Jason Campbell 18.10lbs
4th place - Micheal Dixon & Yogi Lozano 17.55lbs
5th place - Justin Lain & Josh Stephens 17.40lbs
Big-Bass Micheal Dixon & Yogi Lozano 8.21lbs

Tampa Bay Junior Bass Club tournament-Lake Parker 8/1/15
Overcast skies and lower water temps from the rain resulted in lots of fish caught on Lake Parker this past Saturday in the Tampa Bay Junior Bass Club August tournament. The kids had a blast catching fish on topwater frogs, watermelon/red speed worms, dark colored yum dingers and weightless trick worms. Several nice fish were caught in the Crago canal on yum dingers and Culprit Incredi-craws flipped real close to the bank. Some nice fish were caught in Crago flippin watermelon/red baits including a 6 pounder by one of the captains. Clark Cooley won the younger division 11-14 yrs old with 12.42 pounds fishing a weightless trick worm in the smaller lakes. Grant Henderson took big-bass with a 5.82 pound largemouth. Stephen Whitlow won the 15-18 division and big-bass with 5.44 pounds and that all came on one fish! Congrats to all the winners and thanks to the boaters from Bay area Bassmasters and North Tampa Bass Club for supporting the club. For more info on TBJBC visit: www.tampabayjuniorbassclub.com
Randy was doing an odd job when a accident occurred leaving him with a double compound fracture in his right leg and a broken heel on his left leg. Bones is Randy's nickname and is what most people know him by. He was layed off from work October of last year. Unfortunately bones has no insurance and now that he's plagued with at least 8 months of rehabilitation and from what the doctor is saying at least six surgeries. A benefit tournament for bones will be held Saturday July 11th at Buzzard Beach on the Harris Chain of Lakes. A $100 entry-fee will be split at 50 percent for the payback of 1 place for every 7 boats. A complimentary fish-fry will accompany the entry-fee after the weigh-in along with raffle items. If you are unable to attend the tournament but would like to make a donation, Brookers Bait and Tackle in Leesburg is accepting those or you may send it to 40827 W. 6th Ave. Umatilla, Fl 32784. Any amount would greatly be appreciated. I have been Randy's tournament partner for 15 years he's a good fishing partner, a great friend, and a person who ALWAYS brings a laugh and smile to whatever he's doing. This is a call-out to the bass tournament community, please come out and support a fellow fishermen that needs a little support in a time of need. Thanks, Vernon Kemp
