Leesville BASSMasters launched from Stonehouse Creek at Lake Gaston for our sixth tournament of the season. Temps were in the low 50s at launch rising to around 80 at weigh-in. We had partly to mostly sunny skies and water temps in the mid 70s. A brisk breeze made running on some portions of the main lake a little sporty, and as a result, many of the jet skis and water skiers were pushed back into the creeks.
All of our anglers brought fish to the scales today, and quite a few were spotted bass. After all of the sacks had been weighed, Wes House captured his second win of the season with a five fish limit weighing 8.91 lbs, anchored by a 3.64 lbs which also took big fish for the day. Following closely behind in 2nd was Leesville rookie Gray Williams (5 fish, 8.48 lbs). Duke Bevard rounded out the Top 3 in 3rd (5 fish, 7.56 lbs).
With the first half of our 2019 season completed, Wes House leads the field in 1st place, followed by Mark Cannon and Duke Bevard, but we still have a lot of water remaining to fish. The second half of our 2019 trail leads off at Roanoke Rapids Lake near Thelma, NC on July 13. RoRap is one of the few major lakes in the area that still has a healthy crop of grass, and we're looking forward to pulling some nice sacks out of the salad.
