Bass Club finding lots and lots of small fish  

Lake St. George was the site of Fairfield Glade Bass Club’s Tournament  8. A total of 27 fishermen and women participated, with a grand total of 191 bass being caught and released. 

The number of bass was by far the best yet this year, but the size was down considerably. This goes to show, though, that the overall health of Lake St. George is really good and the bass have had many years of successful reproduction. Participating in this tournament were three guests, Bob Calis’s daughter, Karyn; Bill Desmond’s grandson, Grant; and my grandson, Matthew, all of whom were very successful in fishing in a five-hour tournament. 

The results are as follows:

First Place — Ron Riccetti (again) and John Slinkard with five bass weighing 7.03 pounds;

Second Place — Duane Vandewalker and Mike O’Hara with five bass with a weight of 5.48 pounds;

Third Place — John Upp and Jim Hajny with five bass weighing 4.16 pounds;

Fourth Place — Bill Desmond and Grandson, Grant Lovett with five bass weighing 4.00 pounds; and,

Fifth Place — John Seimer and Paul Demet with five bass weighing 3.86 pounds.

Big Bass Honors went again to Ron Riccetti with a 21-inch, 4.74 pound bass.

Fairfield Glade is a beautiful place, so let’s all do our part to keep it that way. As you walk or otherwise travel through the Glade, make and effort to gather any trash along your way. If everyone helps, it will remain a beautiful place.
