Anglers Quest Twin Lake Tourny
By BILL WEBB

Feb.2 -Kickapoo Bait and Tackle-Lake Livingston

Muddy waters from a recent cold front and below freezing temps greeted the 58 teamed anglers along with bright sunny skys. The anglers had predicted good fishing, with previous reports of good sized fish and concentrated numbers being found in recent days. Bill Long, tournament director, along with head "honcho" Barbara Long waited the return of the anglers to the weigh-in with hopes of large stingers being a good possibility. Although the front had cool the waters off considerably making fishing more difficult. This "Twin Lake Iourny" is an exciting one with anglers traveling between Lake Houston and Lake Livingston monthly through out the entire tournament series. It has already given both lakes exposure to new anglers and anglers new and good fishing experiences on a different lake system.

Prior to this tourny the anglers from Lake Livingston had dominated the tourny here and the anglers from Lake Houston had dominated the tourny there. This was about to change today.

As weigh-in began the Montgomery team of Joe and Dean New weighed in 2nd big bass of 3.99 lbs and a total weight of 14.20 lbs. This was enough for them to win 1st place.The Lake Houston team kept secret their fishing spot hoping to fish there again to win next time.

The next Lake Houston team from Humble was Jason Reyes and Jeff Stanley who brought in a limit also of 13.40lbs to the scale which gave them 2nd place for the day.

Another Lake Houston team from Kingwood also was in the money.Chris Diberardino and Dean Coleman fished The near-by Kickapoo creek and tallied up a limit of fish weighing 13.10lbs giving them 3rd place.
The only Lake Livingston team that came in the money was Chester Ables and Herbert Gallier who also fished Kickapoo creek to bring in a limit weighing 12.35lbs.
