What Happened in August
The big thing is Kelly Bemis and Ed Reeder showed us they know how to win a tournament. It was a tough day, but they had almost 13 pounds to the scale and their big fish was just short of 4.

Fishing solo Ernie Melcher nailed down 2nd place for the pro division, and the 2nd place amateur went to Christian Carter fishing with 3rd place pro Bucky Leigh.

The battle for Pro Angler of the Year is still hot. Billy Skinner pulled ahead by a couple points, but only a couple. Craig Johnson finished right behind him. If I was betting I’ld put even money on these guys. Billy has shown he knows how to find fish, but I’ve seen Craig consistently catch fish all year around, and the winter months are yet to come.

Free basic entry in September.
Bucky Leigh – Pro
Christian Carter - Am

Ok EVERYBODY. Please get down to Sportsmen's Hide-A-Way and get signed up for the next Yuma Pro Am right now.

Mittry Lake In September
Yes, we are back on Mittry Lake for the last time in 2009. Lets see what we can do. This lake can give up some big fish. Lets hope it lets us catch some this Sunday.

Launch Time
Sunrise is getting later, but we still need to be on time to the ramp. We are probably looking at a call out around 6:00 am so you should try and be at the lake by 5:30.
Weigh in will be at 2:30.

BOATERS: It is important that you fish if you want to continue to support bringing new people into tournament angling. We need to be able to brag that we have a couple open backseats at every tournament.
NONBOATERS: Please get signed up early. The rules are in place to favor those who really want to fish and commit to be there. Waiting until the last minute is the one thing almost guaranteed to eventually leave somebody who wants to fish sitting on the bank.
