Pace takes first place in BassBuster tournament

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

KENTUCKY?LAKE, Ky. -- The Bootheel BassBusters held their third tournament of the year on May 20th on Kentucky Lake out of the KenLake Marina.

Stan Pace won the tournament with a six fish limit weighing 16 lbs. 11 oz. Leon Miller was second with a six fish limit weighing 14 lbs. 1 oz. and Leven Cox was third with a six fish limit weighing in at 12 lbs. 9 oz.

Jim Sindle took Big Bass honors with a 5 lb 2 oz. largemouth and Mitch Allen won the "Lucky Drawing."

The weather was beautiful but the high pressure made the fishing erratic for the contestants.

Leven Cox leads in the Angler-of-the-Year race with 640 points. Kenny Dement is second with 507 points and Leon Miller moved into third with 499 points.

The club travels to Kentucky Lake for the fourth tournament of the year out of Buckhorn Marina, a two-day event, on June 2nd and 3rd.

Anyone interested in joining the BassBusters should contact Club President Mike Estes at 620-2785 or Vice-President Kenny Dement at 471-3567 after 5 p.m.
