The second Weekday Warrior Tournament was held on August 9, 2012 at Liberty Reservoir. Despite the high temperatures and abundant sunshine, the tournament was ruled by the teams fishing "down the lake". The introduction of aquatic grasses into Liberty has definately changed the way the lake is fishing. In years past, it took a heavy overcast day to allow the teams fishing the clearer waters of the lower lake to have a dominant showing like they did yesterday. But this tournament showed everyone that is no longer the case!
Congratulations go out to the team of Tison and Martin. Their winning limit of fish included the tournaments largest fish. Second place went to the team of Bertholdt and Gamber. The former MRA Tournament of Champions winners had a beautiful mixed bag of largemouth and smallmouth bass. Third place went to the team of Balsamo and Snyder. The protest that had been lodged at the weigh-in was subsequently withdrawn and the results are final as listed above.
Kevin Hollash from Shippensburg University took time from his busy FLW College Tour Fishhing schedule and was on hand at the weigh-in. Later he help tend to some fish that were showing some signs of stress after being relesed into the lake. The MRA is very happy to help support Kevin and his teammates by contributing a portion of the Weekday Warrior Tournament entry fees to help them with their expenses for the FLW tour.
