We all appreciate Lake Michie in the summer months as an opportunity to escape the craziness of pleasure boats zooming up and down the lake, making waves, and adding to the complexities of fishing. It’s a great place to get away from it all. We all had that to look forward to, though it came at a cost. In what may have been the hottest month in recent North Carolina history, temperatures soared yet again. 98 degree heat coupled with 94 degree water should have made for a tough day. Yet while some did struggle, others pushed through and found the gems hidden in the small lake.
Greg got back to his winning ways, finding a magical spot that would yield the largest sack in recent club history. His satchel of 4+ pounders resulted in a victory totaling over 20 pounds. Bravo Greg – well done. Here he is with his 2 SMALLEST fish.
Riding on the back of Greg’s boat, and spending much of the day as “net boy” was Barry. All that work helping Greg did pay off though, as Barry (aka Little Rabbit) brought 3 fish to the scales that topped 13 pounds. His 6+ pound kicker was the big fish of the tournament, reeled in while Greg was culling. Opportunity lost there. Coupled with one of many old man hats, Barry brought home big fish AND 2nd place money for his efforts.
Up next will be Chowan for 2 days of tournament fishing. We all look forward to that, but hope the heat has cooled down some by then.
