WWB 2018 Update 02-11

“Happiness is a BIG Fish… ( and a Witness)!”

We had 2 Boats go out today and both of them caught fish. The weather turned a little colder so make sure you bring plenty of warm cloth or a lot of alcohol. Arlene Haugse caught a beautiful 26″ Keeper and her boat brought in 13 other fish to get them in the running for boat with most fish. We will keep the Blog going as the tournament continues, so keep watching..
