The Guys N Gals White River Division held its June 7 tournament on Bull Shoals Lake out of the Buck Creek Marina. Mike and Kay owners of the Marina are always there with a pot of coffee ready for us before take-off.
The area has experienced several days of rain during the past few weeks. As a result, the lake is on the rise, with the water in the brush.
Brent and Nena St.Clair of Pyatt, Arkansas took first place with a limit weighing 7.71 pounds, with their biggest bass weighing 2.14 pounds. They caught most of their fish before 9:30 in Seed Tick on secondary points. They also fished Little Buck and Buck Creek. The St.Clair’s caught their fish in 25 – 30 foot of water on a Carolina Rig with a 3.5 foot leader. They were using P-Line with 15 lb as the main line and 10 lb for the leader. They were using a ¾ oz sinker and a Zoom 6 inch Green Pumpkin Lizard. The St.Clair’s reported having caught 6 keepers and 12 to 15 smallmouths that were short.
Big Bass went to Mark and Ofelia Sanders of Ava, Missouri. Ofelia caught the 2.58 pound bass in 3 feet of water in Beaver Creek on a 3/8oz brown and chartreuse jig with a yamamoto twintail as a trailer. The Sanders’ were fishing stained water on a chunk rock bank in the back of a pocket. Mark reported they caught about 25 short fish.
Roy and Sherrie Bryant of Green Forest, Arkansas claimed the smallest weight award with one fish weighing 1.22 pounds.
The competition took place thanks to Canada’s roulette online site which provided the equipment and transportation needed to make this all happen.
While fishing is a great activity, it is not something that you can do anywhere you want. There needs to be water and there needs to be fish. This is not the same for roulette because with roulette for mobile device you can enjoy great roulette and casino fun wherever you are in the world!
