OUR very own pair of Michael Schraeders, that is Senior and Junior, took the flyrod among the regular bass folk in the Peitz “Kick Cancer in the Bass” tournament on Bull Shoals Lake over the weekend.
Yesterday Jr. and I fished the Peitz “Kick Cancer in the Bass” tournament on Bull Shoals Lake. Ron McQuay (Ron’s Fly Fishing 101) sponsored us as a team in honor of his daughter and the help they received from Peitz Cancer Support House.
Dally’s Ozark Fly Fisher was also a major sponsor to this tournament. With all this “fly fishing” support we decided that it was only fitting to stick with fly gear and see how we would fare against the other teams.
While we didn’t have an “epic” finish, we did manage weigh in enough bass to place 31 out of 58 boats! We were pleasantly surprised at the positive comments from other teams that saw fly rods on the deck of our Vexus!
It was really great to see so many fisher(persons) come together in support of such a GREAT cause!
