Top Four Anglers:

3. Jim Holsenback       13.89 pounds
4. David Dennis           11.94 pounds

The day after Christmas was 70 degrees and overcast.  The flood gates were open and the water level was over the tops of the docks making it difficult to launch. Muddy water was washing trees, coolers lawn furniture and jet skis down the river.

Tony beat the seventeen boat field by locating a school of fish with a specialty rattle trap and then working on them with a custom jig. Tony landed over 50 fish for the day. Ken used a chatterbait, square bill crank and soft plastics to land his fish, and Jim flipped flooded bushes for the majority of his catch.

Division 29's next tournament will be held January 9th on Lake Guntersville out of Goosepond.
For more information on this or any future event in this division contact Mike Garlen at 256-998-0171.
