Thirty-two teams fished the last regular Missouri Angler Wednesday Night Tournament and met the same conditions as they faced the last three or four weeks, high temperatures and a tough bite. There were a lot of anglers scratching their head wondering what it took to get a five fish limit. Most of the anglers caught two or three small keepers and several non keepers.
According to a majority of the anglers, trying to establish a consistant pattern has been their biggest problem. Three teams, however, did manage to come to the scales with a five fish limit.
Next week, September 7th, the tournamen fish-off will be the last Missouri Angler Wednesay Night Tournament of the year. Take off will be out of PB#2 at 5:00 P.M. and weigh in will be at 10:00 P.M.
