You hear that huge, you dream about capturing a bass enormousThe trip was made by more than 150 anglers from 26 states to Lake Conroe, Conroe, Tex. Nine boat partners travelled from California, Kansas, Ohio, Georgia, Florida, and Alabama to be a part of this event; this reveals the PVA Bass Tour's strength, growth, and support. While for months and weeks before the tournament some folks said Lake Conroe wasn't a good bass fishery, the Open Contest anglers put all those rumours to "bed," as they broke four records in this division: biggest bass, largest five bass fish limit, the most bass weighing more than eight pounds weighed in, as well as the greatest 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 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. Luckily for the anglers the front pushed through on Saturday, making to get a great bite and procrastinated. If he/she has something important to weigh in you can tell by the look on an angler's face. The look on Duncan's (Tyler, Tex.) face made me quit doing my work in the Tour trailer, merely 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 sack, along with the scales locked at 2407, placing the crowd into a frenzy of cheers."Muy, muy, muy grande!" Is what came out of Duncan's mouth when he saw the 11-11 bass bust from the water. He set the hook using a lizard that was white dipped in chartreuse to fool the bass. Duncan spotted 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 couldn't fish the remainder of the day. For his attempts Duncan acquired a fully rigged Ranger" Bass Boat powered with a Mercury[R] Outboard and a Minn-Kota[R] trolling motor. Stubblefield received a Minn Kota trolling motor along with a number of other amazing 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.
