March 11, 2017 Yates Lake

Christian Bassmen fished Yates Lake Saturday, March 11 with another good group of 19 members.  Some big fish have moved up, but keepers were still hard to find for most of the club.  Three fish over five pounds were brought to the scales.  Jimmy Martin had big fish with a 5.01 and finished third with 10.19.  Phil LoTempio finished second with 10.64 and Bryan Selix edged out the field with 10.86.
