5 boats out today…4 jet boats and 1 drift boat!  Norm Klobetanz took Melanie Jacobs out today and she said “it was the best day ever!”  She hooked 5 fish but was only able to land one–a 24 1/2″keeper!  By the way, she was a last minute booking for the tournament…literally, she booked LAST NIGHT!  So there is still room here and there if anyone is interested in going on WWB this year!  Just give us a call!

Fishing is still going steady with four boats out today and all with good numbers! Rich and Mike E. took the Linda Williams crew out today and everyone on this boat caught a fish today–7 in all!  Linda herself caught a 23″H; Deanna Weaver cuaght a 23″H; Katherine James caught a 22″H; and Helen Goerke caught two fish–a 31″W and a 24″H.  The mother and daughter duo of Kelly and Katelynn Bowden really NEEDED this fishing day together…Daddy is deployed in Iraq right now, so they took this day to spend together and have some fun!  And fun they had with Kelly catching a 23″W fish and 9 year old Katelynn catching her very first Steelhead, a 24″keeper!!  We just want to take this opportunity to say thanks …
