Great day or not? Cold takes over tourneyApril 12, 2019

JASPER — Sunday, March 30 proved to be quite a challenge for the Jasper Bassmaster anglers. This was the day for their club tournament and while weather was somewhat pleasant throughout the week, the bottom fell out come Sunday morning at Beaver Lake.
It started off with a frigid 28 degree temperature at launch time with a promise of getting warmer later in the day. Although the temperature did reach about 38, the wind picked up to about 14 miles per hour and it became a typical day of fishing in early spring which caused many of the members to stay home.
Eight members fished that day with only four keeper bass being caught. Approximately 50 short fish were caught which did add some fun to the day.
Doug Pfau led the way with two large bass weighing 11.67 pounds with the big bass of the day weighing 6.23 pounds. Rick Bockelman was second with one fish at 2.66 pounds while Pat Pfau was third with one fish at 2.12 pounds. Pat said he would’ve done better if it wasn’t for having to net his brother’s big fish.
Meanwhile, some of the other club members had reservations to fish Kentucky Lake the same day and found it to be just as tough. Jace Brescher caught one bass weighing 4.55 pounds and Eric Durcholz caught one fish at 3.24 pounds.
In summary — it was cold, fish were caught, stories were created and all involved had fun.
