KENTUCKY LAKE -- The Bootheel BassBusters held their first tournament of the year on March 28 with the weigh-in held at the Fenton ramp on Kentucky Lake.
Stan Pace won the tournament with two bass weighing 6 pounds, 3 ounces, while Mitch Allen took second place and Big Bass honors with a 5 pound, 8 ounce fish and also won the "Lucky Drawing." Ty Garrett was third with two bass weighing 5 pounds, 7 ounces.
Most of the top finishers reported catching their fish on crankbaits or jigs. The weather turned rainy and cold during the tournament which helped keep catch rates low.
The club travels to Kentucky Lake on April 18 for the second tournament of the year out of the KenLake Marina.
Anyone interested in joining the club for the 2010 tournament season should contact club president John Wilson at 471-2567 or vice president Mike Estes at 620-2785 after 5 p.m.
Camaraderie and competition are the hallmarks of the BassBusters and new members are always welcome. Owning a boat is not required for membership.
