Delta Hot and Cold
Orwood - As the Bass Busters 2008 season  winds down our 10th tournament of the year found us visiting the Delta one last time. As always the everchanging Delta threw some curveballs with dropping temps and gusty winds but about half of the 12 teams managed to scrape up limits.  Almost all the anglers used Senkos or a Dropshot rig except for Jeff Leo and Albert Leung who cranked a Fat CB Luckycraft in the mad craw pattern to bring in 11.58lbs, enough to secure the top spot. Their sack included a 6.78lb bucketmouth, the big fish of the day. 
  Jim Fritz and Ryan Margone targeted warmer water using Senkos and a black and purple jig with a Double Wide Sweet Beaver trailer to nab second with 11.1lbs.
 Third was taken by Dean Ziemer and Dennis McMaster who suckered 10.35lbs into their livewell with a Dropshotted Margarita Mutilator and small swimbaits. Dean's 6.38lb second big fish of the day didn't hurt them either.

Spiro and Mike Represent
Spiro Stamos and Mike Chen will be riding their success in this years Future Pro Tour to the FPT TOC at Clear Lake November 8th & 9th. We'll all be rooting for 'em.

It seems like it would only be fair for Mike and Spiro to share their winning strategy with the rest of the club for our Clear Lake tournament the next week. On second thought guys, just send me all the details and I'll post them for you.

After a really tough day on the Delta the Bass Busters scraped enough weight together to take 7th place. The winning weight was just under 49lbs for 6 boats which shows how tough it was.
