On March 29th, 2015, the Gillespie Bass Club held their second tournament of the season on Sangchris Lake. Located north of here near Pawnee, Sangchris is another well known power plant lake that the club visits on a yearly basis. Once known for its state record striped bass, this lake also holds an abundance of big crappie and some bucketmouth bass. It’s not uncommon for a 7 lb bass and the occasional 8 pounder to be landed early in the season. On this day, the club was welcomed with high winds and water temps in the mid to upper 40’s. Not your best conditions for fishing. As always, someone found the fish. Results are as follows:
1st, Lonnie Colley, 3 fish, 10.23 lbs.
2nd, Aaron Hankins, 3 fish, 9.50 lbs.
3rd, Greg Saterlee, 3 fish, 9.26 lbs.
Big Bass, Aaron Hankins, 5.54 lbs. (Note: Aaron’s fish takes over current big bass of the 2015 season beating out Nathan Troeklers 5.36lb from Coffeen.)
36 anglers participated with 21 weighing in 39 fish for a total weight of 121.90 lbs
