Lake Washington
  Federation Qualifier
The club finished in 8th place at the June Federation Qualifier tournament on Lake Washington. 
Both largemouth and smallmouths were on the beds and those that found bedding fish weighed big bags.  Individually, Eric Woods finished in 18th place helped by a 10# 5 fish limit on day 2.  The tournament was won by Ron Hobbs Jr. with over 35 #'s and a great 20+ pound bag on day 2.



   Whatcom Results
 We had 28 members and guests fish the two day Lake Whatcom tournament.  The weather was great, the boat launch a zoo, the majority of fish were caught on beds and everyone caught fish.  There were 88 fish caught weighing 162.89 pounds and 10 limits on day 1.  That was an average of 1.85 pounds per fish and 9.3 fish per hour.  On day 2 there were 3 limits and 61 fish caught weighing 111.23 pounds.  That was an average of 1.82 pounds per fish and 8.1 fish per hour.  Congratulations to Ken Ganancial for first place, Mike Buse for second and Tom Melowitz for third place and big fish at 4.2 pounds.  See the complete results
