The Land O'Lakes Tourist Association's second annual Land O' Lakes Large and Small Mouth Bass Fishing Tournament took place on August 16, with about 300 participants casting their lines into the water. Fishermen John Robert Greer and Peter St. Pierre, both of Sharbot Lake, were just two of many who weighed in with Victor Heese at one of two weigh in stations set up on Bobs Lake for the event. Participants could fish on five area lakes, which included Skootamatta, Stocco, Beaver, Bobs and Kashwakamak. The grand prize was offered up to anyone who bought a ticket and was a 2014 Legend 14 FT Ultralite Boat courtesy of North Shore Marina. Five first place prizes of $500 each were given out to the biggest large or small mouth bass caught on each of the five lakes. After weighing in one large mouth bass at 1.89 pounds, Greer and St. Pierre headed out again to see if they could beat that with just 2.5 hours remaining in the tournament.
