The weather was great . . friends stopped by . . and all-in-all it was a perfect day to go fishing!! BASS ASSASSIN offered a $2000 GRAND PRIZE and a $500 BIG BASS PRIZE . . they even "sweetened the pot" at the end and added an additional prize of $100 BA Baits drawn by raffle. POWER POLE raffled off a $1295 Sportsman II (Shallow Water Anchor) to one lucky angler. RON'S TACKLE BOX wants to send a "Special" THANK YOU to our Weigh Master, DALE FRANCIS, who handles that job so well and is faithful to every tournament. We appreciate you Dale!!!

INTERESTING INFO: The GRAND PRIZE Father/Son Team of Ismael Garcia's (Jr & Sr) were successful using BASS ASSASSIN "Tap Out" Baits in June Bug and Black/Blue Tail . .

16th Annual Lake Alfred Lions Club Bass Tournament ~ JULY 4th (2015)
on Lake Alfred at Lions Park was a great success! We had (28) Angler Teams competing for that
1st Place prize of $1000. The winners were Mike Coffee and 17-year old Donavan Macomber. In
addition to 1st Place, Donavan was the recipient of Big Bass ($270) weighing in a beautiful 8 lb/2 oz
Bass. July 4th also happened to be Donavan's birthday . . he said it was his best BD ever!! This event, which offered a fantastic Car Show, "Live" Gator/Reptile Show, Live Music, Raffle, Games, Great Food and more, was a wonderful example of how local government, organizations and business work together. The event was jointly sponsored by Ron's Tackle Box, Lake Alfred Lions Club, and the City of Lake Alfred . . Kudos to all!
