Dale McCumsey and Dan Reynolds Sporleder WIN!
Clinton Lake, Aug. 11, 2007, by Carl Parks


Friday night August 10th was our final meeting and we were blessed to be invited to the Clinton First Christian Church. I felt as if I were at my grandmother’s house with all the good food. They treated us with pork roast and mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, rolls, applesauce etc… Yummy! We look forward to returning next season. Pastor Greg Taylor gave us the Word of God by showing us how universal, sacrificial, and how personal God’s love is. John 3:16. It brought three people to rededicate their lives to Christ. Amen!

Saturday morning was clear and breezy but that would soon turn to heat and humidity with the temperatures climbing into the upper eighties. Fifteen teams showed up to contend for cash prizes and bragging rights for the year end points championship. These anglers had to deal with tough fishing conditions as only one limit of five bass were brought to the scale. 

The team of Dale McCumsey of Farmer City and H.R. Kirby (Substitute for Dan Reynolds) brought in five bass that weighed 11.23 lbs. earning them $932.50 in prize money.

Second Place goes to the team of Bryan Thrasher from Mansfield and Mark Mixel (Substitute for Jeff Henson) with three fish that weighed 9.74 lbs. They also caught the Big Bass of the tournament with a largemouth that weighed 4.40 lbs. earning them $607.50 in prize money. 

Third place was the team of Bryan Williams from Mahomet and Michael Sanders from Monticello with four bass that weighed 7.99 lbs. to give them $275.00 in prize money. 

Terry Potts of Clinton and Ian Estes from Mahomet caught the second biggest bass for an award of $60. 

With their third place finish on Saturday Bryan Williams and Michael Sanders became our 2007 Division Champions by earning them $465 in Cash, Jackets and plaques from the national office, and an automatic berth in the no entry fee National Championship where the best of the best will compete for a brand new Triton TR-20X Bass Boat with a 200HP Mercury outboard. Congratulations guys. 

The Midwest Regional Championship will be held September 21 & 22 on  Lake Wissota in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin where the best from the Midwest will compete for a brand new Triton Tr-186 Bass Boat with a 150HP Mercury outboard.
