December 22, 2011

With this being my last column for 2011, I thought we'd take a look back at the season that was on the lakes.
The first LeFlore County Bass Club tournament took place March 5 at Broken Bow Lake. Steve “Hard” Core and “Good Luck” Chuck Restine won first place with a haul of 18.81 pounds of bass — which included Steve big bass winner of 7.33 pounds which was good for $230 — which earned them $575 for the win. Jason “Wick” Wickware and Russ “Pop” Warner were second (14.12 pounds, $345), while Robbie “The Bruiser” Brassfield and Keith “Stone” Jones were third (9.22 pounds, $230).
