Brent Lyon Wins Close Battle at Clear Lake PRO/AM

Saturday was one of the closest tournaments we’ve had in many years, with the top 3 finishers separated by only 6/10th of a pound. It seemed like everything would be fine this day, sunny skies, temps in the low 80’s, and no wind. Fishing was great for those who found them, but not for everyone. It seamed the bite was fairly tough, with over half the field of 42 boats weighing less than 10 pounds for a 5 fish limit. But for those who did find them, Jackpot.

Professional Angler Brent Lyon of Reno, Nv. fished with amateur Chuck Schroder of Fremont, Ca. The two seamed to work well together as they weighed in an impressive 5 fish for 20.82 Lbs. With a 5.43 lb. pro big fish anchoring the pair and two more 5 pounders in the bag, it was easy to see why everyone was all smiles when they came to the scales. Lyons told everyone at the awards, “We fished south all day and caught our fish flippin brush hogs and crankin’ deep divers on main lake structure”. The reward for hard work this week for Brent was a check for $2217 and a very nice Engraved Magnum Bottle of Wine from EOS Winery in Paso Robles to remember to day by. Chuck received a nice plaque and a check in the amount of $636. Congratulation to both for a fine day of fishing.

Second place went to another Nevada angler, Rob Wenning of Sparks, Nv. He fished with amateur Eddie Fletcher of Elk Grove, Ca. Together they weighed in at 20.45 pounds with a big fish of 6.29 lbs. Wenning said at the awards that fishing was a lot harder on tournament day than in practice, but one good spot still pulled it out for him. He also spent most of the day fishing the south part of the lake. Wenning received $1408 and a nice trophy while his partner took home $742 for the day.

Finishing in third was local Guide Bob Myskey of Nice, Ca. who fished with Sacramento’s Tim Cutler. With no big fish in their bag, these guys showed what a great fishery Clear Lake can be. They weighed 20.20 pounds for five, giving them better than a 4 pound average per fish. Myskey said “I’m fishing another tournament tomorrow so I cant reveal all my secrets, but I will tell you this, throw crankbaits”. For his efforts Bob took home $912 while Tim received a check for $766, which included some big fish option money.

Forth place went to Rick Kendrick of Sacramento, Ca. and Lee Schwartz of Antioch, Ca. with 19.74 lbs. This finish propelled Rick into first place for Angler of the Year, and with only one event left, he is looking good. Rick received $672 while Lee took home $518. Rounding out the top 5 was Mark Brown of Ukiah and Gabe Sanchez with 19.02. They took home $815 and $251 respectively.
