Thanks Southwest Outdoors Club

SS MinnowWell the tournament is complete and the SS Minnow got bumped off the board Saturday. The fish have moved in nicely just in time for the tournament end unfortunately.

The club did a great job with the tournament again this year. The boat numbers were a little down this year because the fish just weren’t there for most of the tournament. Although walleye were there for the taking in certain places and the odd rainbow was taken sporadically in the early part, numbers never really picked up until the last few days. That did not contribute to the usual large turnout of participants.

If the tournament had started one week later this year, I think we would have seen completely different results but you just never know how it will shape up. The weather really influences the fish movement. A thermocline is just now developing and schools of baitfish are finally forming up in the area.

I hope that doesn’t get the boyz at the club down. THis tournament is a great thing for us locally and I would be extremely disappointed if it did not happen. My personal thanks to the Southwest Outdoors Club. Things would not be the same at Wheatley Harbour without your contribution with this great event.
