CANYON LAKE, TX – For the 2nd week in a row we’ve had some inclement weather roll in hours before the release of the boats, then calm just after the tourney kicked off. With high winds and rain pounding the 77 die hard anglers that came out this evening, several were awarded with a good night of fishing. None more than Jason Olivio and & Joey Rodriguez who brought in an impressive 17 pounds on a lake that has been fishing tough for nearly 2 years. Their 17.19 pounds was the heaviest weight we have seen so far in 2019. The team fished up lake and did most of their damage on top water baits with their biggest fish in the bag coming just before dark. Jason said they didn’t get many bites tonight, but the ones they got were solid. The team took home their 4th win of the season and $660.

Coming in 2nd place for the 2nd week in a row was Steve Vance and Donnie Marshall. They also used the bad weather conditions to their advantage to bring in an impressive 15.24 pounds which is the 2nd largest bag we have seen in 2019. In any other event so far in 2019, their big bag would have earned them a win. They too through moving baits around hardwoods just like they did last week and were able to cull up to their final weight with 2 solid fish. Steve and Donnie took home $380 for their 2nd place finish.

Big Bass this week went to Pratt Kramer and Keegan Clement with a healthy fish tipping the scales at 7.28 pounds. Unlike the top place finishers, but just like the big bass winner from event #6, Pratt said they fish came on a Ned Rig in 20’ of water. Pratt said his partner had put all his rods and gear away and was calling it a night then asked him if he should drain the livewells. Pratt said he told him that he still has a line out and to hold off for a second as he thought he felt something. A second later he sets the hook on the big girl, throw her in the livewell, and make a hasty trip back to weigh in to win Big Bass and $200..
