You hear that big, you dream about catching a bass bigMore 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. To be part of the event, nine boat partners travelled from California, Kansas, Ohio, Georgia, Florida, and Alabama; this shows the PVA Bass Tour's strength, growth, and support. While for months and weeks prior to the tournament some folks said Lake Conroe wasn't a great bass fishery, the Open Competition anglers place 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 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 place. 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 captured on their spawning beds greeted the anglers during pre-fishing, but an impending cold front could push the bass off their spawning beds and make for some tough competition. Luckily for the anglers the front stalled and pushed through on Saturday, making to get an excellent bite. 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 cease doing my work in the Tour trailer, just 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. It locked at eleven pounds eleven ounces (11-11); the crowd erupted into cheers and applause. The other four bass were added to the bag, along with the scales locked at 2407, setting 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 utilizing a white lizard with its tail dipped in chartreuse to trick 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 couldn't fish the remainder of the day. For his attempts Duncan won a fully rigged Ranger" Bass Boat powered with a Mercury[R] Outboard along with a Minn-Kota[R] trolling motor. Stubblefield received a Minn-Kota trolling motor along with many other fantastic prizes. Fishing the same area as Duncan was Paul Offill (Forney, Tex.) with partner DJ Hewitt (Osteen, Fla.), who landed five bass weighing 1907, good for second place.
