Well the 5th annual MWA Perch Derby is in the books . We had a total of 13 boats registered. 1st Place went to Dan Haddock and his crew with a 11-3/4 incher winning $90.00 way to go gents. 2nd place went to Rick Nichols & Dale Brinley with a 11-5/8 incher for $ 40.00. Winners of the side pot of $ 115.00 was Team Nichols & Brinley, thanks to Dan & crew for not getting in the pot there were a few other 11" and and few 10" but mostly dinks. Fishing was tough, ours was the only keeper we caught for the day. Most everyone was running here and there trying to find some active biters, but at least it was a nice day weather wise I want to thank everyone who came and hope to see you next year. Thanks Dale for being my partner again this year
It was a tough day with some Dinks, threw back some 4 , 5 and 6 inchers early in the morning and as the day went
we wondered if we should of kept them lol.Had a great time as always, Da-Rock (Rocky) fished with me. Had a great time and just enjoyed being on the water with good people and good friends. Fish seemed to start feeding abot 1:00 PM,lol about an hour before the event end lol.
I got 1 keeper fish, 3rd place with an 11 inch perch, Da-Rock had 1 9 1/2 perch. We were marking large schools all day but could not get them to go . 13 boats joined in on the fun and heard a few of the IL. boys came but were late for the event. Heres some pics just of the water,smooth with just swells in the morning to a little rougher by afternoon, but not bad at all, really a great day.
