On Saturday, June 25, members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club held a bass tournament on Sardis Lake. Once again, anglers had to endure temperatures in the upper nineties and strong southerly winds. The bite was slow with none of the anglers bringing a limit to the weigh-in.
Winning the tournament was Kenny Briggs. Kenny’s stringer weight was 12.70 pounds. He also had the big bass of the tournament with a bass weighing 5.15 pounds.
Finishing in second place was Ellis Silvey with a stringer weight of 8.66 pounds. Third place was won by Terry Thurman. Terry had a stringer weight of 7.54 pounds.
The club’s next event will be the Annual Noon to Noon Bass Tournament. It will start on 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 16, and will end at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 17. Anglers may fish the entire twenty-four hour period or go home after the weigh-in on Saturday night then return at a time of their choosing to finish out the tournament. The time for the Saturday night weigh-in will be set at the club’s regular monthly meeting on Thursday, July 14. Club members meet at 7:30 p.m. at the Wildlife Heritage Center and Museum.
