LungeFest Results

Kudos to Jeff Ferjutz for acting as Tournament Director for this event.  On behalf of the club, Jeff would like to thank everyone who came out to fish, the weather was great for fishing.  The storms they were calling for must have missed Leesville.  This is a throwback tournament, biggest fish wins.  27 anglers registered with 8 fish being caught.  Would like to congratulate Matt Clark who landed a 45″ fish to win the event and Big Fish.  Matt also donated $100 back to the Minnow Fund from the big fish pool.  Thank you Matt.  Hope to see everyone at the Summer Contest at Piedmont on July 21st and July 22nd.  Other successful anglers and the fish caught were:

Rick Simposon  30.5″

Syl Trunkett 32″

Will Shawgo 34″

Will Tolerton 34.5″ and 38″
