You hear about bass that big, you dream about capturing a bass largeMore than 150 anglers from 26 states made the excursion 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. Nine boat associates travelled from California, Kansas, Ohio, Georgia, Florida, and Alabama, to be part of this event; 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 wasn't a great bass fishery, the Open Competition anglers put all those rumours to "bed," as they broke four records in this division: biggest bass, largest five bass fish limitation, the most bass weighing greater than eight pounds weighed in, as well as the largest bass caught this year on Lake Conroe. Many anglers caught the largest bass in their life. Bank Team Event The fishing on the bank was about as rough as it gets, but Eric Payton (Garland, Tex.) landed a 4.97-pound catfish that gave him and his teammate, Jay Segarra (Henderson, Nev.), the Texas PVA Bass Tournament Bank Team Competition crown. 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 put the team of Kevin Teeman (Roland, Okla.) and partner 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 Contest Warm weather and reports of good bass being caught on their spawning beds greeted the anglers during pre-fishing, but a certain cold front could shove 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 an excellent catch. If he/she has something important to weigh in you can tell from 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 appeared made me start shaking.A creature bass is what was pulled out of the live well and taken to the scale. The other four bass were added to the sack, and the scales locked at 2407, putting 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 of the water. He set the hook using a lizard that was white with its tail dipped in chartreuse to trick the bass. Duncan seen the enormous bass on its bed and said, "I thought it was around seven or eight pounds, but looking through water is deceiving."After Duncan's partner, Alan Stubblefield (Spring, Tex.), netted the big bass, Duncan had five and was trembling so much he could not fish the remainder of the day. For his efforts Duncan gained 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 a number of other great prizes.
