Rotary Club Charity Bass Tournament

Last Saturday, June 23rd, The Murray Rotary Club held a charity Bass fishing tournament.  Louie and his son, Lou Jr. fished it together and had a nice day on the lake.  Together they caught the limit of 5 bass and Louie won 1st place for biggest bass of the tournament.

Here they are pulling up to the weigh in....



Weighing in the big fish....



Collecting his check for big bass!  The bass weighed 6 lbs, 7 oz.  It was a nice win - $ 500.00.



We were able to catch the interview on video.  They got a big kick out of Louie and his "northern accent" and gave him some ribbing about how they landed the fish.  You can watch it if you like....


The Murray Rotary Club put on a really nice tournament.  While the fishermen were weighing in, they had ice cold water bottles, freshly sliced watermelon, hot dogs, chips and sodas for the fishermen and the spectators.  They also had a ton of nice door prizes, including gift cards, marine batteries, tee shirts and fishing caps.  We won a tee shirt and a cap.  It was a fun day for the fishermen and it was an even better day for us since we won Big Bass!
