Western Branch - 7/23/2011 (unofficial)



Since the scheduled Western Branch tournament was cancelled due to excessive heat, several die hard Bass-Jons members held an unoffical "pick up" tournament.  9 boats and 15 anglers showed up to face the oppressive heat conditions and held their own throughout the day.  They were aided by a slight breeze and lots of water.  Anglers reported fish cruising the shallows, but they were unwilling to bite.  No limits were weighed, and the two fish, 7lb bag brought to the scales by Luther Showaker was enough for the win.  Big fish was won by the team of Rick Burton and Adam Bach with a 6lb hawg caught on top water.  The winning bag was caught with finesse worms.
