No surpise, DNR modified rules and provided options for slot limits for bass tournaments in these bodies.... after receiving much feedback. Of course they were or probably are still in jeopardy of losing big and elite tournaments due to the prior submitted rules. Regardless, at least their new "Option 2" is just good fish management.
I'm sure that any of you who uses crankbaits has occasionally broken a bill. Last year, I broke a bill on a crankbait that was hand-painted by a very talented friend of mine. That crankbait has been sitting on my office desk, missing a big piece of the bill, for nearly a year. As you may have guessed, I stumbled onto a great way to complete a repair. There is a product, which you may have seen on an infomercial. It is called Lazer-Bond. This is a UV cured clear Polymer. The liquid that is extruded from the product tube is then hardened using a UV light, at the other end of the product. It hardens within seconds, allowing the user to apply layers to build the size and shape required. The attached image is the crankbait that I repaired. After a 10 minute effort, plus a little time to touch up with a nail file, my crankbait/piece-of-art was ready to use again. Nearly 1/4 of the bill was rebuilt. Note: The repair is hazy due to the filing. When wet, it is pretty clear.
Congratulations to the team of Wisner and Onhieser for taking first place in our first Weekday Warrior tournament of 2016.
Chad and Mark weighed a limit of 8 bass totaling 17.70 Lbs. Their catch included a 4.09 pound Largemouth, which claimed the tournament lunker prize. The team of Eric Holmes and Ryan Auxt claimed the second place prize with 15.70 pounds.
Thanks to Anglers Express for providing additional prizes with Gift cards for the top two teams and for the lunker. http://www.anglersexpress.com/
