Congratulations Jim Lampe with the winning
Catfish for the 2010 Catfish Derby 7 lbs 2 oz.
What a great success we had for the first annual Catfish Derby. Our sponsors and anglers are the real reason this event was such a success!
We had a couple set backs this year with the unexpected drawdown of Sanford Lake and the weather forecast. The weather man blew it again. I thought the weather turned out great, even some unexpected sunshine in the afternoon.
A total of 8 Catfish were caught. Not bad for most that have never targeted Catfish as the days catch. I seen some interesting baits used. Cory caught his Catfish of my dock on a piece of Koegel Hot Dog!
Congratulations to Jim Lampe of Sanford, on the winning Catfish of 7 lbs 2 Ozs. He is crowned Catfish King for a Year. Who will de thrown him next year?
