Brian Walters - The Winner Tom Melowitz - 2nd Place


We had 2 members fishing the first tournament of the year on Lake Roosevelt.    It was in the 50's for the 5:20 Saturday blast off with mild wind conditions until 8:30 am on Saturday when it blew with gusts up to 35 MPH.  With the high winds the weigh in was moved from 3:00 pm to 1:00 pm.  Sunday wind conditions were worse than Saturday so Sunday was cancelled.  The water level was 1231 feet, 59 feet low.  Water temperatures were between 48 and 50 degrees.  Brian Walters won his first club tournament with 16 pounds and 1 ounce ( a new one day club record).   Brian was fishing the Wynhoff Cove area.  He said he caught fish on jerk baits and crank baits untill 8:00 am.  After 8:00 am he switched to a Football Head Jig and Hula Grub.  Tom said he caught 25 keepers all on a green pumpkin tube.  He mostly fished the Swawilla Basin flats but also caught a few fish by Spring Canyon.  The fish were right up on shore.  Another great spring fishing day on Lake Roosevelt!
