Rousseau Kicks Some Bass

With bad weather looming Mar 25th, tournament director Phil McNeal of the Tri-County Bass Club decided safety first and postponed the Lake Rousseau tournament 1 week to April Fools Day. Mother Nature cooperated with a beautiful day and the bass said lets eat. McNeil said he had another good turn out with 25 boats. Because of limited parking, anglers could launch at other ramps and meet at Peaceful Acres. The results are as follows:

  1. Steve McCourt 5 fish 12.1
  2. Cliff Sanders 4 fish 11.10
  3. Mike Phillips 5 fish 10.1
  • Big Bass 6.6 Cliff Sanders

There were 66 bass caught with 6 anglers having limits. Total weight was 130.1 with an average weight of 1.97. Although the Big Bass for the year is now 6.6 caught today, there’s yet to been a “BIG” bag of fish brought to the scales.

My sources tell me that the bite was on today for many that used Junebug & Black/Blue worms fished on a hook with a weight. Love the description.

The next tournament is Apr 8 at Lake Panasoffkee launching from Tracy’s Point. Don’t forget the $5 launch fee is YOUR responsibility.

This tournament circuit is for anglers 55 & older. Entry fee per tournament is $8 with a one time charge of $10 to cover Big Bass pot at the end of the season. For tournament information contact Phil McNeal 352-634-2608.
