Thirty two anglers in eighteen boats participated in our annual Icebreaker Tournament. The cold 29 degree foggy start was quickly followed by a beautiful warm sunny day. Unfortunately, for most of the competitors, the big bass were not in a mood to come out and play. The team of Waino Anderson and Ron Wolfe broke through with a 5.57 Lb lunker largemouth to win the tournament. Ron caught the winning fish after masterfully employing a 20-minute dead sticking approach that required a level of patience that most mere mortals simply don't possess. You'll have to get the rest of that story from Ron or Waino. It's a good laugh.
Thanks to Anglers Express for generously providing coffee and donuts prior to the start of the tournament, and for their generous awards of tackle discounts to the top three teams in the tournament. I suggest that all MRA members should check out their Timonium store.
Congratulations to Ron and Waino for a great finish on a challenging day.
