The May tournament was held at Miller's Ferry out of Roland Cooper State Park. The tournament was originally scheduled out of Ellis landing but do to high water, we changed launch sites. There were 14 Hawg Hunters present to fish at safe daylight. The fog moved in heavy the first morning, causing a few of the boats to stay close, those who were equipped with G.P.S. could have made their run and some did, but some didn't want to take the chance, G.P.S. units don't show tree's floating down the river, and believe me, there was a lot of debris coming down the river and fast.
It seemed that the bite was on and off several times during the day, but the bite was there if you could find water with some high bank. Most of the fish were caught on spinner baits and jigs. Day one weigh in proved it was a tough day on the water, only two limits were brought to the scales, Brian Metcalf and Rich Cornelius had a little luck on their side. Brian also had the big fish for day one, a nice fish weighing in at 4.30 lbs. Day two proved even tougher, three fish was the most any one person had, but some bigger fish were brought to the scales, the top water bite paid off for Tony Boyett, he had three nice fish which tipped the scales at 10.75 lbs. His big fish was a monster, weighing in at 6 pounds even, great job Tony. Unfortunately, Tony was not in the "Booray Pots" and missed out on a great deal of cash. Bad for him, great news to everyone else. Tony did jump from 5th place to 1st for the tournament and also took over big fish of the year honors up to this date.
Great job Tony.
The top four for the tournament were:
1- Tony Boyett
2- Brian Metcalf
3- Rich Cornelius
4- Wayne Thomley

The next three tournaments will have a 2 p.m. weigh in, so keep that in mind.
