Our two-day KFC event on Lake Sam Rayburn is in the books. It was our next to last tournament
for the spring season. It was kind of a soggy one. Saturday and Sunday were in the high 60’s in the
morning and the high 70’s in the afternoon. It started out early on Saturday dry and not to windy.
But it quickly turned wet as the rain and wind started and was off and on all day. Sunday was a
different story. We had trental down pours of rain all morning until about 11 o’clock. Then it
cleared and gave us a nice break just in time for weigh-in.
The fishing was not bad, but not great either. It sounded like everyone caught fish. But you really
had to get through all the short, non-legal fish to get some keepers. The fish that were weighed in
were caught primarily on soft plastics and jigs.
We paid 6 places at this tournament. Derrick Hall went back-to-back for his second win of the
season with a 1st place finish, 1st day big bass and two-day total of 18.42lbs. GONGRATS Derrick!
Second place went to Donald Burden with 16.53 and second big bass on Sunday of 4.35 lbs. Third
place went to the jig master, Bobby Woods at 14.21 lbs. John Baker took 4th place with 9.65 lbs.
Andy McKinney had 5th place with 9.49 lbs. and 6th place went to Grant Thomas with 8.52 lbs.
I want to be sure and recognize some KFC members that exemplify exactly who we are, and what
we are all about in the Kellogg Fishing Club. Let us Start with Johnny Faulkenberry, who helped
rescue one of the High School Tournament fishing teams. While other people motored on by.
Johnny stopped and helped them bilge their beached sinking boat after knocking a hole in it. They
got the boat bilged and then Johnny put the two kids in his boat with all their gear and followed
their father to the boat ramp safely. Randy and Clint Myers went and found Dan and Grant
Thomas after they broke down due to a bad battery. They towed them back to the ramp and all
was good. Then the Dan & Grant were able to repay the favor and help Randy and Clint change a
flat tire they had after they left the ramp on Saturday. Thank you all for your selfless actions.
These are the kind of actions and comradery that exemplify the Kellogg Fishing Club Family.
Our next and last tournament of the spring season is at Lake Palestine on Saturday, May 22nd. It
is an individual, one day, weigh-in tournament that will be held at the Lake Palestine Resort.
Hopefully, we will continue the great attendance we have had for all our spring tournaments for
this one as well.
Hope to see you there.
