Lunge Fest 2020 Results

Wow, what a day.  Started out a little cool with patches of drizzle and rain but then the sun came out for a beautiful afternoon.  A great turnout of 56 anglers seeking to unlock the magic of Leesville Lake were ready to go at 7 am.  Jason Basic foretold what was to come by landing an impressive 49 inch giant early in the morning. In fact too early in the morning, just one half hour before the tournament was to start.  We also had some exciting first catches……Colton Harmon got his first muskie with a 43″ and Maggie Butara, our Social Media Director, was thrilled to land her first 10 minutes into the event, a solid 39.75″.  By the end of the day, a total of 18 muskies were registered for the event, but there were also a few fish caught that were not registered.  The fish were clearly active Saturday.  When it was all said and done, after a nice long nap midday, Rick Simpson managed to be awake long enough to catch the big fish of the tournament, a hefty 46″ beast.   Here is the complete list of fish and a few pictures.  Check out our Instagram page and Facebook for more pictures as they are sent in by our anglers.  We are nearing 1,000 followers on Instagram and will have a prize package to be awarded when the magic number is reached….so if you are not already following us, jump on board and you could win some cool lures and a selection of products from Cleveland Fishing Company.
