Gunnels, Michaels win Kiamichi Outdoor Festival Bass Tournament

The Main Street Matters Kiamichi Outdoor Festival Bass Tournament took place Saturday at Wister Lake. The weigh-in took place in downtown Poteau on Dewey Avenue.Todd Gunnels and Greg Michaels took first place, hauling in 15.83 pounds of fish.Keith Griffith and Gary Steelman were second (15.16), while Chuck Restine and Steve Core were third (15 pounds even — which included Steve's big bass, weighing 4.73 pounds).It was a good tournament because everybody caught fish. I fished with Randy Martin, and he caught a fish weighing 4.56 pounds — which was the big bass at that time, until Steve's 4.73-pounder got caught. It was the third straight year Randy and I got beat out right at the end. Next year, we're going to win that dude!— — —Any questions or pictures, make contact with Jody Ray Adams on Facebook or email them to
