Twenty boats launched onto Blue Cypress Lake to compete in the Space Coast Bass Finatics tournament on December 14. Despite our best efforts, only two of the teams would bring a five fish limit to the scales. While anglers found it difficult to catch numbers of fish, quality fish were found with three fish over six pounds weighed. The team of Jimmy Blount and Jack Berry, both of Rockledge, used texas rigged big plastic worms to catch 5 fish for 13.94 pounds to win the tournament. Their bag was punctuated by Berry's 7.98 pound lunker that was the tournament's biggest fish. Dwayne Haga of Sanford and Dave Metzler of Debary flipped soft plastics to catch 3 fish for 11.11 pounds to finish second. Santos "Junior" Solis and Jason Gonzales, both of Vero Beach, also flipped soft plastics to take third place with 3 fish for 10.82 pounds.

The month's small creel award, a $50 gift card to Strike-Zone, was earned by Alan Elder and Wayne Smith with 1 fish for 1.00 pounds. Strike-Zone's local buddy tournament series is coming back in 2015. For more information on that, drop by the store. Thanks to Strike-Zone for donating that generous and useful prize!
