You hear about bass that huge, you dream about catching a bass that largeThe trip 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 occasion, nine boat partners travelled from Alabama, and California, Kansas, Ohio, Georgia, Florida; this reveals the PVA Bass Tour's strength, increase, and support. While for months and weeks before the tournament some folks said Lake Conroe wasn't a great bass fishery, the Open Competition anglers set all those rumours to "bed," as they broke four records in this division: biggest bass, greatest five bass fish limit, the most bass weighing greater than eight pounds weighed in, as well as the greatest bass caught in 2013 on Lake Conroe. Many anglers caught the biggest bass of the life. Bank Team Event The fishing on the bank was about as tough 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. Third went to Harold Hack (Whitewater, Wis.) and Steven Ray (Rowlett, Tex.) with 2.16. Fish considering 1.81 set the team of Kevin Teeman (Roland, Okla.) and partner 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 great bass being captured on their spawning beds greeted the anglers during pre-fishing, but an impending cold front could shove the bass off their spawning beds and make for some tough competition. Fortunately for the anglers the front pushed through on Saturday, making to get an excellent bite and stalled. 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, just to see what was to come out of the live well. What emerged made me begin shaking.A monster bass is what was pulled from the live well and taken to the scale. The other four bass were added to the bag, and also 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 from the water. He set the hook using a lizard that was white dipped in chartreuse to dupe 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 large 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 with a Mercury[R] Outboard and a Minn Kota[R] trolling motor. Stubblefield received a Minn-Kota trolling motor along with many other great 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.
