2013 INVITATIONAL TRAIL OHIO RIVER, ROCKY POINT

Rocky_Pt_day_2_anglers_and_big_bass

The third and fourth tournaments were held Saturday and Sunday June 1st and June 2nd. At Rocky Point outside of Tell City Indiana. Two separate tournaments but the results were similar. Bass, Bass and more Bass. On Saturday there were 48 limits weighed in by the 55 Anglers.  There were 25 limits weighed in by the 53 Co-Anglers. Most of the fishermen also reported culling several times.  I have fished the trail for 20 plus years and I have never seen the Ohio River produce so many fish. On Saturday there were 453 bass brought to the scales.

The Saturday tournament started with a weather delay as the storm was bringing down lightning and the prediction was to get worse. The storm did clear and a steady rain allowed take off at 7:30.  The tournament was extended an hour to make up for the delay.
