The excursion was made by more than 150 anglers from 26 states to Lake Conroe, Conroe, Tex. This first stop on the 2005 PVA Bass Tour, a BASS Sanctioned Event was hosted by Texas PVA on April 1-3. To be part of the event, nine boat associates travelled from Alabama, and California, Kansas, Ohio, Georgia, Florida; this shows the PVA Bass Tour's strength, growth, and support. While for months and weeks prior to the tournament some people said Lake Conroe was not an excellent bass fishery, the Open Competition anglers place all those rumours to "bed," as they broke four records in this office: biggest bass, greatest five bass fish limitation, the most bass weighing more than eight pounds weighed in, as well as the largest bass caught in 2013 on Lake Conroe. Many anglers caught the biggest bass of their life to date. Placing second were Donna Hendrickson (Athens, Tex.) and David Auvenshine (Waynesboro, Ga.) with 4.35. Third went to Harold Hack (Whitewater, Wis.) and Steven Ray (Rowlett, Tex.) with 2.16. Fish weighing 1.81 set the team of Kevin Teeman (Roland, Okla.) and associate Larry Dodson (N. Augusta, S.C.) into fourth spot. Rounding out the top five were Wilhelm Pamb III (Midwest City, Okla.) and Michael Riley (Mesquite, Tex.).Open Competition Warm weather and reports of good bass being caught on their spawning beds greeted the anglers during pre-fishing, but an imminent cold front could push the bass off their spawning beds and make for some tough competition. Fortunately for the anglers the front stalled and pushed through on Saturday, making to get a good bite. If he or she has something major to weigh in, you can tell by the look on an angler's face. The look on Duncan's (Tyler, Tex.) face made me stop doing my work in the Tour trailer, only to see what was to come out of the live well. What emerged made me start shaking.A monster bass is what was pulled out of the live well and taken to the scale. Another four bass were added to the bag, along with the scales locked at 2407, placing the crowd into a frenzy of cheers."Muy, muy, muy grande!" Is what came out of the mouth of Duncan when he saw the 11-11 bass bust out from the water. He set the hook using a lizard that was white dipped in chartreuse to fool the bass. Duncan seen the huge bass on its bed and said, "I believed it was around seven or eight pounds, but looking through water is deceiving."After Duncan's partner, Alan Stubblefield (Spring, Tex.), netted the large bass, Duncan had five and was trembling so much he could not fish the remainder of the day. For his efforts Duncan acquired a fully rigged Ranger" Bass Boat powered by a Mercury[R] Outboard plus a Minn Kota[R] trolling motor. Stubblefield received a Minn-Kota trolling motor along with many other great prizes.
