Some of the big girls finally came out to play at Leesville BASSMaster's latest tournament at Buckhorn Reservoir in Bailey, NC. We arrived to a light breeze and a comfortable 60 degrees at blast-off. Water temps were in the low 60s. Clear skies reigned for the day, and the early-morning light breeze was replaced by a steady 10-15 mph wind that blew out of the SSW for the majority of the day.
When all fish had been called to the scales, rookie Mike Lee took home his second consecutive 1st place finish (2 fish, 10.18 lbs), followed closely by Mark "Connections" Cannon in 2nd (2 fish, 9.55 lbs) who also took big fish for the day with a 6.19 lbs chunk. Finishing in 3rd was Wes House (1 fish, 6.06 lbs). Duke Bevard was the only other member to bring fish to the scales (1 fish, 3.42 lbs).
Our next tournament is in two weeks on April 28 at Jordan Lake in Apex, NC. We're expecting fish will be hitting the beds hard over the next two weeks, and it should make for an interesting tournament.
