We had 4 members, with 3 boats, fishing the last tournament of the year on Banks Lake.   The WSBF Open, with 6 boats,  was also on Banks both days.   Both tournaments co existed with no reported conflicts.  It was in the 50's for the 6:15 am Saturday blast off with overcast skies, strong winds and rain.     It got worse as the day went on with stronger winds and rain.  It was  too windy to fish the main lake.   Sunday saw lows in 50's with mild winds and a sunny sky for the blast off.  The wind picked up around noon to 10 - 15 MPH.    Tom, fished with Cody Hampton, who had the big bass of the tournament, a 4.19 pound largemouth caught on a jig, which was a new club record for the bigest largemouth caught in a club tournament.    They caught most of their fish on a drop shot rig, with a Fisher Brothers DS Minnow, and on square bill crank baits.  Brian indicated he caught his Saturday fish fish on square bill crank baits.  The bite was pretty slow on Saturday and even slower on Sunday.  The largemouth bite was very slow on Sunday. 

                                        The next club tournament is in April 2017 on Lake Roosevelt.
