First Club Tourney on Lake Wilson

My first club your tournament of the year was on Lake Wilson out near Salina KS. Normally at this part of the year the water temperature would be in the upper 50′s or 60′s, however now the water was 48-49 degrees and today the winds were howling at 20-30mph.


I started out throwing a jerkbait and a wiggle wart down the rock bank for the first hour and the boater caught a fish.   I did catch a 13 inch crappie on a jerkbait. Then he picked up chatterbait and caught two in the back of the creek and missed one. I looked into my tacklebox and I didn’t have one.  I asked my boater and he let me borrow one.  In less than 15 casts I caught a 14 incher.  Over the next 5 hours my boater and I caught 8 more fish.

End results 4 fish, 11th place (2nd place as a team) and a lesson learned on the chatterbait.
