  Results for the 1st Ol' Joe´s 1st Catfish Tournament for the night of 4/5/14
15 boats applied to win Ol' Joe´s 1st Catfish Tournament of the year.
But only a few weighed in fish. Cold air and lots of boat traffic seemed to shut down a lot of the bite.
-1st place was Bryan Espy and ken Lettrell of Maroa a with 6 Catfish total weight of 42.4 winning $600.00
-2nd place was Bob Lee and Zac Sharp of Galesburg with a 6 fish total of 34.9 winning $360.00
- 3rd place was Tim and Tom Walsh from Danvers with a total weight of 33.9 winning $240.00
- Big fish of the night was caught by Mike Pozio of Bloomington with a 11.5 Channel Cat for $150.00
* Sometimes the guys catch some rough fish [carp or drum perch] so it was suggested that we start a rough fish pot,
well this first night a 24.8 Drum Perch was caught by Bryan Espy and he won $90.00
Thanks to all who came out and fished our 1st tournament of 2014 and Hope to see ya again May 3rd.
