Our third tournament of the year was very close.  Only two anglers fished.  Tom nosed out Curt by .16 pounds!  The weather was a little chilly on Saturday with moderate winds from the South.  Sunday saw strong winds from the west with a morning temperature of 61 and in the lower 70's at the weigh in.  Water temperatures ranged from 57 at Coulee Playland to the mid and upper 60's in the Punch Bowl and the main lake.   Saturday saw a good reaction bait bite most of the day.  The bite was better on  Saturday but the fish were a bit bigger on Sunday.  Curt caught morning fish both days on jerk baits.  Tom said he caught a lot of fish on Saturday on crank baits on the main lake but none on Sunday.  Tom caught his largemouth both days on senkos and a chigger craw in the Punch Bowl and the airport slews.  After the jerk bait Curt's most effective bait was a Beaver.
