The 34th Potholes Open Bass Tournament was a delightful event. Bass fishing families from all over the Northwest participated. One very special guest from Lake Fork, Texas, drove his bass boat to enjoy fishing this 2016 event. He was club president in the early years with the Potholes Bass Club. Today he owns Angler’s Custom Rods and he donated two “Gary Lamar Memorial Fishing Rods.”

The event winners were Steve Backlund and Russ Baker with twelve bass for 45.55 pounds. Second place went to Kelly Ross and Levi Meseberg with 44.78 pounds. Third place was won by Dennis Boyd and Susan Boyd of Oregon with 42.10 pounds. 955 Largemouth Bass were weighed in and 163 smallmouths. In the 34 years of this event 2,979.25 pounds of bass were weighed in to set a new record. Our local Potholes Bass Club presented an excellent event. Many people came to MarDon just to enjoy this event.

This weekend there is a bow fishing tournament at MarDon resort. This archery sport is really gaining popularity. The tournament is April 23-24.

The CWFAC habitat partners have built 232 more habitat boxes to be put on the floor of potholes reservoir, to provide a safe sanctuary for small fish to live and grow.

Walleye action has heated up this past week, with more limits in the Crab Creek area, the big dune on the west side and also the mouth of Frenchman’s Wasteway.
