Big Bass Helps Saunders Bring Home Smithville Win

The Smithville Bassmasters recently held their second tournament of the year at Smithville Lake, Saturday April 12th. Jeff Saunders took home the top prize honors with a 4 fish winning weight of 16.09 pounds. Saunders’ catch was anchored by the tournaments’ big bass, a 7.57 pound lunker.

“I caught them on my favorite lure to fish, a jig,” Saunders said when asked what fooled his fish.

Josh McIntire placed second and Dave Letourneau took third.

The Smithville Bassmasters’ next tournament will be held April 26th at Mozingo Lake. Their monthly meeting will be Tuesday, May 6th, 6:30pm at the Smithville Pizza Hut. Pairings for the next two tournaments to be held at Smithville Lake, May 10th and Truman Lake, May 17th will take place at this meeting. New and current members are welcome to attend.
