Under a gloomy sky and blanket of fog the Bass Busters held their 2nd tournament of 2008 launching out of Capell Cove at Lake Berryessa. After all the forecasts of stormy weather, the intrepid Bass Busters were prepared for a miserable day on the water. But, it didn’t play out that way. Except for a brief wind event, the gale force winds never materialized and the rain wasn’t steady until about 2:00pm. The lake was virtually empty since the forecast was so bleak but this didn’t stop John Hagan from running the length of the lake to Putah Creek to find his winning limit of 8.91lbs. With only 8 limits for 30 anglers the fishing was tough and plastics seemed to rule the day. John Fernandez came in just .33lb behind Hagan to capture 2nd with his brown spider jig. Ron Shikashio relied on his magic dropshot to secure 3rd. Scott Crawford came in 4th with help from the big fish of the tournament, a 2.96 lbr.
Thanks to the Organizers
of the Bass Busters of Santa Clara County 2007 Year End Banquet. Great fun was had by all when we gathered to recognize our fellow club members accomplishments and got a chance to meet some of our members' significant others and think, "What the heck is she doing with that bozo?". The Bold Knight Bistro was the setting, where we recapped the events of 2007 and handed out awards and honors. Thanks to Spiro Stamos and all the people who put in time to make it happen. Extra thanks our sponsors at Mel cottons for making this year's raffle the best ever.
