Lake Oconee - Feb 16 2013 

     J & D Series held the 2nd tournament of the series at Oconee.  Windy, cold, and windy pretty much sums it up.  Arctic blast made it a not so fun boating day, but some sure enough slabs were caught.  Toughest of the toughest came out to beat Jack Frost with 13 teams entered.  Water temps ranged from 49 to 55 on both arms of Oconee.  Water clarity ranged from heavy stain to light stain.  The spawning fish are wanting to come up, but have been forced back day after day of colder than normal water temps.  Looks like the next month should be good all over GA if the current weather patterns hold. 

     Congrats to Ricky Willis and Troy Thiel for landing the largest 7 fish stringer at 11.40 lbs with a big fish of 1.99 lbs.

     Mitch Blount took 2nd place and overall Big Fish with a stringer weighing 11.09 lbs and big fish of 2.43 lbs.

     Third place went to Robert Huff with 10.87 lbs.  4th was Bentley / Adams with 9.79 lbs, followed by Bohannon / Mathis with 9.73 lbs for 5th. 

     Notice that both 2nd and 3rd fished alone.  Very good job by those guys in these tough conditions getting it done solo. 

     Was great to see more new anglers and one very tough as nails woman angler too. 

     The average big fish weighed was 1.95 lbs.  Overall, 54 fish were weighed with an average weight of 1.42 lbs.

     Thank you to Sav-A-Lot BP for being great hosts.  Also a big thank you to Jiffy Jigs, EZT Pole Perch, Ocmulgee Timber, and Five Star Automotive Group.
