    Our October tournament was held on the Pend Oreille River out of Willow Bay. The anglers were able to fish the river as well as the lake. The morning started off with foggy conditions and turned out to be a good day in terms of number of fish caught.

    Broc Allen took the win for the second month in a row with a 11.22 limit of smallmouth that included the biggest bass of the tournament at 4.76lbs. He had a lead in the angler of the year points going in and extended it this weekend.

    Second place was Ver Don Nelson with a 10.57lb limit of all smallmouth.

    Third was Steve Krestian with a 10.24lb limit that was also all smallmouth.

    Just four largemouth were brought to the scales as these waters require a 16 inch minimum and many smallmouth to target instead.

    A new approach to rodent performance evaluation

    Use a peanut on a string an reel it in once the rodent get close. When he's within 10 feet of you, snag his furry little ass with your pole net.
