We had 2 members and a guest ( Ken Ganancial ) fishing the third tournament of the year on Banks Lake.    It was in the low 60's for the 4:45 Saturday blast off with moderate wind conditions.   Sunday saw howling winds for the planned 4:45 am blast off.  The three anglers participating decided to cancel fishing for Sunday because of the high winds.   Water temperatures were in the mid 60's to the low 70's on the main lake.  Bill Hancock had starter problems on his pick up and did not fish.   New club member John Atabero arrived just after the 4:45 am Saturday blast off.  John did not have a tournament banner and decided not to keep his fish without a tournament banner.  Since this was his first tournament he wasn't sure what to do.  Ken Ganancial was the winner with 13.42 pounds.  He weighed three smallies and two largemouths.  Tom was second.  He also weighed three smallies and two largeouhs.  They started by throwing topwater around Coulee Playland.  After the topwater bite died Ken switched to a swim bait and Tom switched to a drop shot.  They both had limits within an hour and caught several more smallies.  They later fished the Causeway slews and the Punchbowl reeds for largemouths  throwing Senkos and texas rigged plastics.  The Senkos produced the best.   Another great  fishing day on Banks Lake.
