Trimbles edge out 1st at Eldorado, Wheeler and Eustice take Cheney and KWA Anglers fair well at the Cabelas NTC
El Dorado Tournament April 24th
The 44 mph wind gusts didn’t seem to bother Marlin and Mack Trible on the last weekend in April. The Trimble fishing duo took 1st place with a limit of four fish totaling 21.88 lbs. Their weigh in just edged out second place finishers Rob Hancock and Dick Bieker. Bieker and Hancock weighed in a four fish total of 21.62 lbs. Corry Brewer and Steve Meyer rounded out the top three with four fish totaling 17.59 lbs. Overall, anglers weighed in 82 fish with a total weight of 347.64 lbs.
Cheney Tournament May 1st
The Cheney Tournament proved to be a much tougher fishing tournament than El Dorado. Weather conditions were much cooler. Temperatures only reached 56* F compared to the 80* anglers felt the week before. That cold front clamped the walleyes mouths shut. Only 23 fish were caught by 17 boats with a total weight of 102.44 lbs. However, Randy Wheeler and Shane Eustice were able to figure out the cold front and lake conditions just enough to pull out a 1st place win. Larry Lapaille and Jeremy Garman finished 2nd and last years state champions Joseph Jennings and Josh Shrober finished in 3rd.
