The 2015 MarDon Marathon Dock Tournament was a great event and a good time was had by all. This event was the idea of our customers that do not fish out of a boat, but they love fishing.
Each year different species are caught in abundant. This year walleye and bass both had big showings.
The big largemouth bass weighed 4.22 pounds and was caught by Derick Deeds. Sean Deeds landed the big brown bullhead weighing 14.88 pounds. Jeff Eckhart weighed a 4.15 pound smallmouth bass.
The big walleye was 5.82 pounds caught by Cody Watson. Crappie were also well represented this year and the largest weighed 1.16 pound and was caught by Greg Watson.
In the past two weeks I have helped 4 different dock fishers re-spool their reels after a huge unseen fish took all their line.
Now this could have been the MarDon Monster, or maybe it was the winning channel catfish caught that weighed 18.46 pounds and was caught by Brandon Collee.
The runner up channel cat weighed 13.93 pound and was caught by Kurtis Goss. We want to congratulate all the winners and we hope to see you back next year!
And also a big thank you to our weigh marshal Dick Hemore. Dick manned the scales from 6 p.m. Friday through 11 a.m. Sunday morning.
Also, on Saturday morning MarDon Resort played host for the Moses Lake Ducks Unlimited Green Wing Event.
Young waterfowl hunters from all over Washington came to learn about Sportsmanship, Conservation and even had some duck calling lessons.
Tom O’Dell, David Helms and Dick Price (and many other volunteers) do an amazing job organizing this event for the kiddos. Don’t forget about this event next year; it’s a must do for a young waterfowl hunter.
