What a great day to fish and the calendar says it’s January. Bud Boenisch enjoyed the day more than most of us when he caught a 5 fish limit totaling 17.24lb the win the opening tournament of the Hell’s Gate Bass Club 2013 season. Boenisch, no we spelled it right, also walked away with the big bass of 6.50lb. Local guide Barry Smith netted a respectable 10.04lb from 3 fish and Tony Wallace eased into 3rd place. Bobby Koncak and Bruce Ray rounded out the top 5. Steve McCain won the Eddie McCracken Award for free entry into next month’s tournament.
Next month’s tournament will be held on Hubbard Creek lake in Breckenridge on February 17th from 6.00am to 3.00pm.
