Event 7 Mountian Island Lake Presented by Installing The Holidays

Another great event today. The 7th installment of the 2019 season. This event was presented by Installing The Holidays and we fished on MIL aka Mountain Island Lake. Reports a few weeks back were amazing. Lake on fire, big fish coming out, eating all baits…..well…today proved all that wrong. Fish were tough to come by for most. Big fish were few and far between. We started the day at 430am and we had 68 anglers come to compete for the monthly #qc1000 today. The weather was nice, clear skies, no wind, but it got warm. The water was 5-6 ft vis in most areas of the lakes. Reports from anglers had fish being caught on a variety of topwater presentations and a variety of soft plastics.

When it all shook out at 3pm, we added another winner to the train win wall. Graham Reay snatched his FIRST SATURDAY WIN today. So awesome. Super happy for him. He puts the work in month after month and he has been cashing checks these days! He wins today with 66.25 which includes the Emerald School of Excellence big bass prize with a 19.75 inchers. He walks away with $1225. 
Chris Goodwin keeps hot this month. He lives on MIL, fished it hard in preparation for this event and it all paid off today with a 2nd place finish worth $561. Ronnie Murphy is impressing the club with his consistent fishing every month. He wraps up 3rd and takes home $374. Nick Huddlestonhasn’t seen or lost to many 30inchers this month ;). He stayed to himself and cashed a big 4th place check today bringing home $265. Tim always cashing Sabella takes the Rusty Hooks Bait and Tackle free entry and turns it into a top 5 finish worth $180. Matt Hawj and PC Hawj continue amazing fish and take home 6th and 7th. Jay Park didn’t win a raffle so he figured he take home 8th place today! an Ab Vang jumps into 9th place and Jason Lowe plays bubble boy rounding out the top 10 for a free entry into the KFWC event on Norman. Congrats guys!!!!! If you cashed please post pics.

Matt and PC take home the MIL team division win today. Earning another $100. Thank you Lakeside Barbers and Hands On Installations.

Andy Myers goes back to back Yak Bass’n small bass 🏆 He catches a 5.25 worth $390!

Things get interesting in Sept. 7 events are in, the drops start now. Will you sneak into the Dynamic Health AOY race? Will you sneak into the top 15 TOC. We will be fishing for $4000* .
Will you earn a fish off seat? Jump into the wildcard? Who knows what Norman and Wylie will do to the standings. Going to be fun to watch.

I want to give a huge thank you to Ryan HulseyBradMary Ferreri, and Ezzy Ferreri. Weigh-in was smooth as always. Quick and easy. Great food provided by ITH. Amazing.

We don’t have a trail event in Aug. We are fishing a charity event, benefiting Emerald School. Its a Kiddie rod event. Character push-button rods. Haha. Should be fun. Jason is the current kiddie rod champ. Will he be dethroned? Grand prize is a @nativewatercraft Slayer XC!!!! $40 entry fee. Takes place on MIL again (maybe changing) weigh-in, food, and ribbon cutting will be at Emerald school!!!

Anything you need just let me know. Ryan will be posting all results under files.
