The fish were on the beds on beautiful Lake Conroe !!! With a light breeze and sunshine pretty much all day,  it was an awesome day for fishing. There were 21 teams that came out to fish the 3rd Anglers Quest Team Tournament on lake Conroe only 7 limits were caught, 83 fish, 277.49 lbs and that made an average fish weight of 3.34 lbs. There was over $5,000.00 up for grabs……
 
The Team of Kyle Nitshke & Jason Bonds brought in the winning stringer of 23.02 lbs. They took home the first place check of $1,660.00. What a good day of fishing for these guys.
 
Second place was held by Mark Hogan & Randy Harbour. These guys brought four fish in for a total weight of 19.85lbs. They also had the biggest fish of the day, an awesome 9.91 lb’er. Mark & Randy took home a total of $1,280.00 for their day on the water. Congratulations !!!

Rick Bearden & Jason James took home the last place money of $210.00 for their sixth place finish with a limit weighing 15.03 lbs. You guys are awesome !!! 
 
There are a few rumors going around and have been brought to my attention. Whether they are true or not, I’m not sure. But let me make a few things clear on Conroe (or any tournament that I hold). It is NOT OK  to get out of your boat to locate fish. It is NOT OK to have someone else on the bank locating fish for you, telling you where to flip or when to jerk. It’s just NOT cool, it’s just NOT rightYou will be disqualified. ( Refer to rule number 1 on the website).


Now, as far as the docks at Stowaway, I have decided to lift the off limits on the docks at Stowaway Marina. Just DO NOT block the boat ramp or gas dock, that will still be off limits.  But the rest of the docks will be open to fish for the rest of the Anglers Quest events.
