Donnie and Juanita Robinson claim victory
By Bill Webb


Anglers Choice Amateur Tournament
April 3 Waterwood Resort-Lake Livingston

104 teamed hearty anglers launched into the rain swollen banks of Lake Livingston. Heavy morning rains and coolish temperatures had most of the anglers scrambling for any good location to find the heavy stringer of the day.Lake Livingston currently is 2ft over normal pool and rising with the run-off from Dallas and the past few days of heavy rains. The fish had been up in the shallows on beds prior to the recent influx of rain but that has changed and the anglers had to search in other areas for their full stringers.

Randy Knight and the cast of Anglers Choice staff were treated to the spring thunderstorms which tapered off later in the afternoon and hoping that the anglers were all safe.With the current carrying many dangerous logs etc. swiftly down stream tournament director Randy Knight advised the anglers that they could trailer there boats to the area they wish to fish.

The weight in began with continuning drizzle and light weights from all anglers only 4 limits were to show up at the scales with most mumbling about the high water problems ,and down-right nasty weather.But as has happened in the recent past the husband and wife duo of Donnie and Juanita Robinson would make it to the weigh in with a nice limit of bass weighing 14.38lbs. Both were very tight lipped as to how and where there fish were caught, since they are competing in the Anglers Choice East Texas Team tourament tomorrow.Not far behind was Michael Evans and Tommy Loving with a limit weighing 13.56lbs who were also silent as to where and how on there catch.A nice Fish caught by Jeff Capps and partner Wayne Scales captured big bass at 6.38lbs.
