Mixed Bag Update - May 9th

Greg Babin caught this 15" rainbow on a Ruffled Birds Nest
Our club's annual "March Brown" outing to the Little Missouri River in southwest Arkansas had to be rescheduled to the first weekend of May this year. Several club members took advantage of the trip to bolster their species list in the Mixed Bag Contest. Almost all added rainbow trout, but Bill Morrison added smallmouth and brown trout to his list, and Greg Babin added a smallmouth also.

Another recent interesting catch was Jim Johnson's chain pickerel. While somewhat common in Cenla waters, the "grass pike" have been rather scarce this Spring for some reason.

Here are the current leaders:
Bill Morrison - 9 species
Carlton Townsend - 6 species
Glen Cormier - 6 species
Greg Babin - 5 species
Jim Johnson - 5 species

Gene Taylor, Corinne Cormier, Rich Hudson, Spencer Hackney and Tom Zabasky all have multiple species entered. Several other members have at least one fish.  Remember that the biggest prize will be drawn from everyone who has entered at least one fish in the Mixed Bag. So go fishing, take a photo with your token, and enter it!
