Austin Daniels and Michelle Norrod also brought in 3 fish which weighed 6.97 lbs. The weatherman kept many teams from trying their luck this past Saturday, but after a short delay to allow the stormy weather to pass four teams blasted off for a day of challenging fishing. The Draskovic’s trolling motor fell off during the takeoff, but after a little work they were back underway. Pam landed two fish before lunch, and Ken shared he caught five fish on back to back casts up in the day and then never got another bite.
