Milton Muskie Munch Results

Saturday turned out to be a typical October day for 2018, heavy mist, drizzle, and rain at times with temperatures from 40 to 45 degrees.  Lake Milton was also in the middle of a major drawdown, probably dropping a couple feet during the week.  With all that being said, 16 hearty anglers gave it a try to catch the longest fish of the day.  Some of the smarter boats had nice enclosures with rumored heaters and even stoves to cook Ramon noddle lunches.  Others had the opportunity to test out a beautiful fiberglass multi species boat just purchased days before.  When all was said and done, John Ringenbach, guided by Tim Smith in that new boat, was able to claim first prize with a very lengthy 31.5″ fish, beating out two catfish and a sub.  Though he was lucky Ricky Bobby Bondy was not able to land two fish most likely stretching beyond 32″. Given the results, the big fish pool was donated to the Minnow fund earmarked for a few more fingerlings to be stocked in Lake Milton next year.  This was our last event of the year, thanks to all for supporting OHMC throughout the year, and see you and the banquet in 2019.

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″

David White 41.5″

Seige Bostick 36″
