This first tournament of the seasons is in the books and the fight to become angler of the year is under way. It was very obvious from the start that fishing season is here and in full swing as Guist Creek Lake was the host of not 1 or 2 club tournaments, but 4 club tournaments. Even with an early morning temperature of 28 degrees, enthusiastic anglers create a proverbial traffic jam of boats looking to get on the water and start their season off on the right foot.
With the temperatures approached the low 70s, anglers began to return to the ramp both pleased and exhausted. From the start Ernie Shuler appeared to be the angler to beat, bringing in 4 fish totaling 4.69 lbs, but sometimes it just comes down to size versus the amount. Tyler Spurlock weighed in 2 fish totaling 5.25 lbs with a single fishing weighing 3.73 lbs!!
Even though the Big Bass winner went to Tyler Spurlock, it wasn’t the largest fish of the day. Guest angler Brian Jodrey aka BJ brought in the largest fish just shy of 4 lbs weighing in at 3.98 lbs.

1. Tyler Spurlock – 5.25 lbs
2. Ernie Shuler – 4.69 lbs
