Georgia team blows out competition

Published 8:04 pm Tuesday, June 15, 2010

The T.B.F. last week was a huge success even though it was held on Lake Eufaula.

Seven 12-man teams came together for a shoot out of three days. The Georgia Division blew the other six states out of the water by 30 pounds. The best individual catch was Marvin Horton of Palmetto, Ga., with a total three-day catch of 54.14 pounds of bass. Bainbridge was represented by Donald W. Culverson with 31.10 pounds of fish.

The Valdosta Bass Masters fished out here Saturday in a sweltering 98 degrees. Some of the fishermen had to hunt shade and some had to get in the water to cool off. It was hot. Mike Hendrics won it with a 5.9-pound bass.

The Thursday nite tournament was won by Koundarocas and Gismo Roton with a 7.30.

We have had some very good catches of catfish this week. I will try to list some of the baits to use, first bait, cotton seed cake, soy bean cake or chips, cheese trimmings, cheap dog food, sinking catfish bait. Now the bait, wiggles, stink bait, catabas, wheat worms, meal worms, oak worms and stink Jims, there seems to be an endless supply of channels and blues for the taken.

Willow flies (May flies) are so plenty full that the bream won’t take a fly bug even at nite.

There was a couple of bass coolers filled to the top on worms and our old guide Jerry Sims using worms, did very good using the same worms.

We are proud to see the boat ramps being build in the Earle May Boat Basin.

At this scriblin, we don’t know won the RSC tournament at the boat basin.

The Hydrilla Gnats fished on Lake Talquin with the following results: First Greg Jeter with 16.73, second Reid Heard with 13.90, third Chris Neely with11.65, big fish Andy Koundarocas with 5.61 pounds.
