Stoner's 3rd Annual Bass Tournament
April 26th, 1997 --- Lake Fork, TX
Brad Stone...Or The UNA Bomber?
My tournament this year was quite interesting. It rained over five inches
during the tournament and we had winds up to 40 mph! It had been bad weather
the previous couple of days so I was shocked that 21 out of 24 paid contestants
showed up to fish. As it turned out, plenty of people caught fish that were
in the "slot" (14 to 21 inches) but no one caught a legal fish. Thus, there was
NO WINNER so I returned everyone's entry fee. Oh well, at least no one got
hurt in all the bad weather.
Brian & Gary Trying To Stay Dry
This year I had two friends in my boat, Brian Bergstrom and Gary Krumbholz.
Gary caught a nice fish on the ridiculous "banjo minnow"...but the fish was
in the slot. I must say that my fishing partners were very good sports that
day and we managed to have a lot of laughs...but not a lot of fish.
