The club arrived at Miami-Garcia impoundment Sunday morning in Fellsmere with 25 teams, to find the lake level slightly down but not bad, the wind had subsided, weather report looking good, mosquitos out in force and the hydrilla and pads growing at a fast rate. I guess SJRWM had not got the word and started spraying yet. The morning check-in went along as usual except for a few stragglers who arrived very late and made the job of the secretary very hard and more confusing than usual.

This year was the first time the Space Coast Bass Finatics added Three Forks Marsh to their annual roster. Twenty two teams managed to squeeze into the basin by the boat ramp before carefully taking off. Everyone did a great job of safely navigating the tight waters without any incident. With many different places to fish in the marsh it seems that Sattori ended up being the place to be. The teams who were brave enough to navigate the treacherous trail south towards Sattori through the trees faired the best resulting in four of the top five finishes.

Twenty one teams embarked on the journey down to Harney Pond Canal boat ramp to try out their luck this year on the Big "O". Hopes were high just as the water was compared to the couple years prior. There wasn't much sleep had for the few who lucked into an all night fish fry outside their room complete with corn hole and a mens choir singing together in tune, unless you were like Clayton and just stayed out all night before the tournament. The wind was fair and steady all weekend but not too bad and the water temperature was hanging out around a comfortable 74 to 78 degrees.

As the club gathered for the second tournament of the year and the sixth tournament of the season the hopes were high for landing some of those giant spawning bass we all know the Kissimmee chain holds. Some teams faired better than others like Mike Hampton and Tim Kopf who managed to wrestle in one of those giants big enough to take over the top spot of Big Bass Honors so far for this season. Good job guys!

First place went to the team of Roger and Aaron Marek weighing in a hefty 16.96 pound bag anchored by a nice 6.21 pound West lake Toho stud.

With the year 2020 in the rear view mirror, twenty four teams showed up early and ready to kick the new year off with a bang. Other than some nasty vegetation blocking the ramp and causing some people to spin their tires until they got traction, the morning launch went as smoothly as possible.

First place went to the team of Clyde and Raymond Taylor with their star studded bag weighing in at 19.00 pounds and included the Big Bass of the day coming in at a solid 7.86 pounds which helped them clinch their first win of the season.

As the Space Coast Bass Finatics returned to the Harris Chain of Lakes, sixteen teams ventured the long journey to compete for the honors of holding the winning bag after tackling the massive acreage across the seven different lakes to choose from. Some teams chose to turn the trip into a little vacation by staying in town days prior to the tournament and enjoying some time away from all the stress during these trying times we live in today. The club had plenty of company on the water that day with multiple other tournaments underway including a one hundred and fifty boat Bass Nation Jr./Sr.

As the Space Coast Bass Finatics kicked off a new season twenty five returning teams plus two new additional teams showed up bright and early Sunday morning to give it their best on East Lake Tohopekaliga. The morning went as smooth as can be expected considering the limited parking and even more limited spots to tie off your boat launching from Ralph V. Chisholm Park.
