Here in Kansas, Eldorado Reservoir is well known to be the home of some of the best Crappie fishing this State has to offer, with standing timber and old fence rows everywhere you look, it's no wonder two pound fish and better are always being talked about.
Nineteen KCC Tournament Teams showed off just what it can do at the recent Tournament. Even with the drought and low water levels, bad weather and conditions being about as bad as they could be, it still gave up the best weights we have ever seen at a Kansas Tournament, and it happened with Summertime fish.
Ryan German, Owner/Opr of Truman Lake Tournament Series along with his tournament partner Tony Niemeyer smashed the old Biggest Bag record of 10.80 Lbs, caught during a Wintertime Tournament on Melvern Lake, not only winning the top spot, but the Big Fish contest as well with 11.75 Lbs Overall and a BF of 1.95 Lbs. Working a patch of trees that ran along an old creek channel between the railroad and freeway bridges with Top Secret Jigs was the key to a successful day of Tournament fishing worth over twelve hundred dollars for them as well as bumping them into Fourth Place in the KCC Team of the Year Points Race.
The Team of Dustin Hobbs and Megan Springer, currently 3rd in the KCC points race, had another solid performance taking 2nd Place. That's not bad at all for a Team that isn't able to put in much time on that Lake. To show up to Eldorado and out fish some of the Teams that call that Lake home is no easy task. These two have been on fire this year, regardless of the Lake or conditions these two seem to always figure out a way to get it done and lock in a Top 3 finish.
