On May 17th, the Gillespie Bass Club traveled to Vandalia Il, to compete against each other in their fifth tournament of the season. Vandalia is another lake with every type of structure an angler could ask for on a lake. Anglers reported that wind gusts in the 15-20 mph range and murky to dingy water could have toughened the fishing conditions. Multiple clubs taking off before us also made for fighting for choice hot spots. I’ll say it again though, someone always finds them or figures out a bite. This time it was Gus Viehweg and he won by a good 8 lb cushion. The results are as follows:
1st, Gus Viehweg, 5 fish, 16.79 lbs.
2nd, Butch Revelle, 4 fish, 8.48 lbs.
3rd, Nathan Troekler, 3 fish, 7.87 lbs.
Big Bass, Gus Viehweg, 5.21 lbs.
34 anglers participated with 21 weighing in 42 fish for a total weight of 99.68 lbs.
