The LeFlore County Bass Club had its third open bass tournament of 2013 on Saturday at Wards Landing on Wister Lake. There were 14 boats filled with anglers who caught a combined 54 fish that weighed 113.98 pounds. Each fish averaged 2.11 pounds, and 10 limits were caught.
Brian â€śCuts Like a Knifeâ€ť Adams and Dwayne Leatherwood won the tournament as they hauled in 12.21 pounds of fish to earn $325. Among the fish they caught was Adams' big bass winner that weighed 5.54 pounds to earn him an extra $130.
The state has released the results for the controlled hunts. If you put in for one (or several) hunt(s), you can go to the Department of Wildlifeâ€™s web site to see if you were selected. In all my baseball craziness of the spring, I did not make time to sit down and do that, so I missed out. I hope you werenâ€™t like me.

Even though I missed out on the controlled hunts, I am not missing out on any fishing. Last weekend, I went to Lake Murray to surprise my cousin, Jason Sampson. His wife, Dawnita, asked us to come, so I could take Jason fishing for his birthday.
