Week 10
Biggest Bass of the Season
Caught June 7th
      Mike Wolfe, leader of the Wolfe Pack, caught the biggest bass of the season for the Friday Night tournaments.  It weighed in at 8.18 lbs. But it wasn't enough to win.  Mike and Tyler Wolfe's five fish limit weighed 11.72 lbs, good enough for second.  First place for the third week in a row went to the Italian Stallions, Paul Renda and Alex Smeraglia, pictured below.
      It was a Stormy night June 7th which caused some of the usual competitors to sit it out.  We still had 10 teams competing, with third going to last year's Classic Champions, Mike and Mason Wright, with 8.685 lbs.  Mason Wright has been away tearing up the high school competitive bass circuit, so it was good to get this father and son team back for the Lake Purdy Friday Night Contests.
     Remember, anyone can win from week to week and everyone is welcome to join the fun every Friday night from 6PM to Midnight.

Week 8
Best Fishing of the Season
on Memorial Day Weekend

      The "Italian Stallions" team of Paul Renda and Alex Smeraglia hit the jack pot with a total weight of 17.830 lbs, the best 5 fish limit of the season.  They had a big fish of 6.18 lbs but that wasn't enough for the Big Fish Prize in week 8.  That went to Tyler Wolfe and the "Wolfe Pack" with the 7.645 large mouth pictured below.  They also captured second place with a 12.225 lbs limit.  That would have been good enough to win all but one other contest this season.   Jeff Little teamed up with a new partner, Griffin Skipper, to finish in the money for the first time this season with 9.45 lb for their five fish limit.  This finish also jumped the team into the top ten in the season points race presented in the table below.

Week 15
Hot Weather brings Big Bass Bite
The Friday night contest continues to heat up with big bass and heavy weights.  In Week 15 Charlie Burns got the big fish of 6.35 lbs and a total weight of 14.28lbs.  This is after a pound penalty for two dead fish including his big bass. The penalty dropped him to second place behind the team of Chris Leathers and Mike Forrester with the winning weight of 14.42lbs.  There was some confusion at the weigh-in and the first place money was awarded to Charlie Burns but the Chris Leathers was okay with keeping the money awards as distributed since it was his mistake.  Third place went to the Young Guns team with Alex Smeraglia pictured below with a 5.69lb large mouth and a total weight of 11.56lbs



Week 14
Biggest sack of Year for Young Guns
      It was a rainy night especially right before the tournament blasted off at 6PM.  But I thought the hardy teams that stuck it out would find the fishing good.  Hayden Teems fishing with a substitute, Austin Goff, won with the greatest total weight of the year, 16.65 lbs!  And they didn't even have the big fish of the night.  That went to Charlie Burns and Donald Jewell with a 4.885 large mouth.  Second place went to Zac Hall and Johnny Hill with 11.39 lbs.  Third place went to former champions, Jeff England and Tony Marlowe with 8.475 lbs.  The first place finish of Hayden Teems was enough to move his "Young Gun" team into a tie for second place in the season points race with 126 points.  The update points standings follow.


Week 13
The Wolfes move up the money list with win and Big Bass
  
    The father and son team of Mike and Nicholas "The Wolfes" won for the the first time since winning the first two tournaments of the 2018 season.  It was a good night to win with 15 teams in the field so their winnings for the night was $225 bringing them up to second place on the money list behind Team Money  which has $942 for the season after Week 13.  The Wolfe's winning weight was 13.075 lbs with a big fish of 4.87 lbs outdistancing the former champ Jeff England who had 11.345 lbs for second and reigning champions, Mike Forrester and Scotty Lewis in third with 9.57 lbs.  With 15 teams the payout was extended to 4th place which went to the Young
Guns which extended their streak of money winning weeks to 5 weeks in a row.

Week 12
Team "Money" Win Again!

Zac Hall fishing with Johnny Hill got their 4th win of the season and approach $1000 in total winnings for the season which explains their nickname as "Team Money".  Their winning weight was 13.345 lb which was tops for the 18 boats entered on June 22.  Thirteen teams weighed in 4 or 5 fish with hand tied jig maker, Jaw Jacker McMillen, bringing in the big bass of the night, 4.195lb.  Second place with 9.65 lbs went to Last year's Champions, Mike Forrester and Scott Lewis.  The Young Guns, Alex Smeraglia and Hayden Teems moved up to third in the season points race with their third place finish.  Ten more weeks to go.  So join this week for the last half of the 2018 season.
