Fifty (50) teams showed up for the Missouri Angler Wednesday Night Tournament knowing that fishing Lake of the Ozarks on Memorial Weekend would be impossible with all the ocean liners and personal water craft. It was a good decision because the bite was on and the fishing conditions were perfect.
There were twenty, 5 fish limits brought to the scales, which isn't counting the teams with four keeper bass, but just not enough weight to get in the hunt. Eleven of the bass weighed four pounds or better, which included one toad tipping the scales at 6.28 pounds caught by the team of Shawn Kowal and Mike Hill for Big Bass of the tournament.
Free entry for next week's Missouri Angler Wednesday Night Tournament was drawn by the team of Wayne Henderson and James Rosehaur.
