CROSSVILLE — Tournament 3 for the FFG Bass Club was held on beautiful Lake Dartmoor with 32 fishermen participating. Even with the wind and water temperatures in the low 50's, most fishermen were able to bring quality fish to the weigh-in. A total of 58 bass were caught and released with nearly half being over 14 inches in length. Popular baits were jigs, plastic baits and some jerk baits. The results are as follows:

First Place – Lee Murray and Jim Hajny, with five bass having a total weight of 8.52 pounds.

Second Place–  Ron Riccetti and Bob Keefer (guest), having five bass weighing 7.70 pounds.

Third Place – Jim Webb and Dave Hixson, with five bass weighing 7.47 pounds.

Fourth Place – George Godsey and Terry Kilby (guest), with five bass weighing 6.86 pounds.

Fifth Place – Tony Danhelka and Jim McCulloch, with five bass weighing 6.68 pounds.
