The LeFlore County Bass Club had its eighth, and final, tournament of the 2012 circuit Sunday at Applegate Cove on Robert S. Kerr Reservoir. There were 50 anglers in 27 boats who caught 83 fish weighing a collective 189.41 pounds. The average fish weighed 2.28 pounds, and 12 limits were caught.
Besting the field was the duo of Robbie âBokosheâ Brassfield and Keith âStoneâ Jones, whose winning stringer weighed 14.94 pounds to earn them $625.
For the fourth and fifth times this season, the Eastern Oklahoma Riverdawgs Major American Legion baseball team came out on the short end against Kerwins.
In Tuesday's doubleheader at Poteau High School's Town Creek Park, Kerwins beat the Riverdawgs 12-2 in the opener, then run ruled the locals 13-3 in five innings in the nightcap.
The Riverdawgs will return to action at 2 p.m. Saturday in Cameron as they entertain the Oklahoma City Bulls for a doubleheader.
I finally got to do some serious fishing last week with my cousin, Russell Broussard, on one day, and my good friend, Dean Armstrong, on another day.
Cash and I headed over to Sebastian Lake with Dean, and fished for about three hours before a storm blew in and ran us off the lake. We did manage to catch several small fish before we had to abandon the lake due to the weather.
