Mother nature decided to give the Butler County Bassmasters a thorough shower at Brookville. Raining for 6 of the 8 hours of fishing. But even the rain couldn’t dampen the competitive motivation of the club, as 15 fish totaling 25.08 Ibs were caught and released, making Brookville the most productive tournament this season. In fact, every angler captured a fish including our guest angler Ryan Murphy who captured his first Small Mouth bass. It is likely that even Bobby Farmers day would have ended well had he not ran into boat troubles early in the day.
When the scales opened Tyler Spurlock took an early lead with his 3 fish, totaling 5.19 lbs, only to be bumped to 2nd by a couple ounces by Andy Tobe with 5.23 lbs, but Andy would be left in the dust as Ernie Shuler’s 5 fish limit totaling 8.84 lbs took not only the tournament win, but the Big Bass win as well with his 2.76 lbs Large Mouth Bass.
With 3 tournaments remaining, Ernie Shuler takes the bait and runs from Tyler Spurlock, Andy Tobe reels in a little slack toward 2nd, Danny Schmitz lets a little drag out on 3rd.
1 – Ernie Shuler – 25.16
2 – Tyler Spurlock – 16.43
3 – Andy Tobe – 14.45
4 – Danny Schmitz Sr. – 9.33
5 – Tony Vieson – 8.91
