Masters Casters Christian Bass Club Tournament
We had another great tournament in Venice last Friday. With high tide early, it took a while for the bass to start biting but halfway to low tide it was on fire for everyone fishing the tournament. Most caught 30-40 bass with the usual reds and flounder mixed in, but the sizes were not as big as usual. The team of David Ellis and Jacob Ellis won the tournament with David having 8.77# for 5 bass and Jacob weighing in the largest bass at 2.77#. Second place went to George Zimmer and third place to Justin Ellis. The best fishing was downriver and flipping soft plastics like baby brushhogs and crawfish imitations worked best. It was fun to see all the big offshore fish hitting the docks too while we cleaned bass. Several of us stayed and fished Saturday as well and caught 52 bass, 2 reds,and 3 flounder. What a place!
