  • First tourney not bad, but cold

    Sunday, March 23, was the first tournament for the Mid-KY Bass Anglers 2014 season.

    The turnout was good with 10 boats and 19 anglers. One guy fishing by himself gave us the odd number of anglers.

    Not bad for a tournament held on a frigid March day! It was bitter cold, but it neither rained nor snowed, so we didn’t complain “too” much.
