Commissioners unanimously approved (4-0) a contract with ACMS Inc. to fund and dispose of waste at ACMSs Bushnell landfill. Commissioner Kathy Bryant was absent from the meeting but also expressed her support for the project through a letter to the board chairman. Through the agreement, the county agrees to pay $20 million for 2.5 million tons of disposal capacity in ACMSs landfill at a guaranteed rate of eight dollars per ton. The site is projected to provide enough space to accommodate approximately 20 years worth of Marion County waste, depending on the amounts disposed each year. When combined with the remaining capacity at the countys Baseline landfill, this move is expected to meet county disposal needs for more than 30 years. The Sumter location addresses several of the disposal concerns expressed in previous commission discussions on solid waste topics, such as overall cost effectiveness, close proximity to Marion County and sufficient capacity to provide long-term disposal for county residential waste. This is a positive step forward to solving an issue that has been an ongoing concern for the citizens for a very long time, said Marion Commission Chairman Charlie Stone. I am grateful for the support of the commission, staff and concerned citizens for their input. District 4 Commissioner Carl Zalak, III discussed the impact of the agreement on citizen disposal fees and overall solid waste costs. This agreement will allow us to be good stewards of our tax dollars and keep residential disposal fees low, Zalak said. It will save us, at a bare minimum, $60 million in solid waste costs. The county also has a number of security provisions in the contract if any problems should occur with the companys performance of the agreement. For example, there are safeguards built into the contract that would enable Marion County to take over operation of the landfill should ACMS default in its obligations. ACMS anticipates beginning construction for the landfill in January 2012. Construction is expected to last for approximately one year, after which the county would be able to use the site for disposal. Ranger and park manager Bruce Whiting kept his grandfathers cook pot hot over the fire, serving up apple cider. Once visitors paid the $3 per carload fee, everything was free from their wreath making kits and sessions to their dipped candles. Here, a crowd is shown designing their own wreaths. The items used included red cedar, hickory, acorns, berries, moss and even corn husk. County to clarify health agreement Sumter County representatives will begin the process of forging a written agreement that will specify the countys role in providing funding for local mental health services. County Administrator Bradley Arnold told commissioners last week he will contact Lake County officials and representatives of the Florida Department of Children and Families, to come up with an agreement that specifies funding responsibilities for the services both counties share through LifeStream Behavioral Service. The issue came to the forefront earlier this year when LifeStream, the agency that provides mental health services to the two counties, requested funding from the Sumter County Commission for the 2011-12 fiscal year that amounted to about $90,000. Commissioners, however, delayed approving the traditional payment amount based on concerns that the county did not have any sort of state guidelines to use to determine exactly how much funding Sumter County should be contributing to the agency. Last week, the county received the clarification they requested from the Attorney Generals Office, suggesting that both Sumter and Lake counties should be providing about 25 percent of the annual costs for mental health services with the state providing 75 percent. The Attorney Generals Office also suggested that the request for funding should come from the Department of Children and Family Services rather than LifeStream and should be submitted earlier than the period when county commissioners are in budget workshops. Arnold told the board that he expects to meet with the various agencies soon and that the funding information should be compiled for the County Commission to consider in January 2012. The County Commissions decision to delay funding to LifeStream resulted in a petition drive by the agency in September imploring county officials to continue funding LifeStream. The petition, submitted to the County Commission, contained more than 300 signatures. B OB R EICHMAN Editor Carl Dausch Convicted murderer, Carl Dausch, will learn next month if he will be executed or spend the rest of his life in prison for the 1987 slaying of a 27-year-old Lake Panasoffkee man. Last week, a 12member jury took less than an hour to sentence Dausch, 53, to death for the murder of Adrian Mobley, an employee at the Bushnell Walmart. The jury voted 8 to 4 for the death sentence. Circuit Court Judge William Hallman is scheduled to decide his fate during a sentencing hearing scheduled for Jan. 31, 2012 in the Sumter County Judicial Building. On July 15, 1987, Mobleys body was found face down and tied up with a bed sheet, in a wooded area off County Road 475, near Lake Panasoffkee. It was just after sunrise, but authorities believe Mobley was killed before 1 a.m. that morning. He died from blunt force trauma to the head. For nearly two decades the case remained unsolved, but in 2006, authorities linked Dausch to Mobleys murder through DNA found on eviFRONTIER CHRISTMAS I f youre looking for inexpensive fun for the entire family, its past time to do some serious thinking about Dade Battlefield Historic Site. This year, staff and volunteers have added a long list of fun to the agenda and one of the favorite experiences was last weeks Frontier Christmas. More than 300 people went out to sample the Christmas holiday in a way that early settlers might have. For just $3 a carload, they got a pile of make and takes and a whole new experience. I thought it was fantastic for a first event, to have that many people we were really satisfied, said ranger and park manager Bruce Whiting. They want us to have it next year, he said of the crowd that came out. The experience included luminaries in bags, musicians fiddling the night away to provide background music and even dance music for the dancing. Visitors even had the B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer See HOLIDAY Page 5 Dausch gets death sentence B OB R EICHMAN Editor See DEATH Page 2 Happy Holidays
dence taken from Mobleys car. The successful link came when Dausch was incarcerated in an Indiana state prison on unrelated charges. He was brought back to Sumter County in 2008 to face charges of premeditated murder and sexual assault. Although unrelated, at least one of the charges he was convicted on in Indiana was similar he was serving a 60-year prison sentence for sexual assault and kidnapping, according to sheriffs office reports. He has been in custody since 1989. Dausch was reportedly visiting Central Florida with family members around the time of Mobleys murder. According to information the sheriffs office released after Dauschs indictment in 2006: After visiting Walt Disney World, an argument caused family members to leave Dausch, who was 29 at that time. After he and his family members parted ways, Dausch began hitchhiking. Authorities believe that at some point, Mobley picked up Dausch hitchhiking. Later on the day that Mobleys body was found, his Honda Accord was discovered in White House, Tenn. At the time, an officer spotted a white man, now believed to be Dausch, but police were not suspicious until they found out the vehicle was Mobleys. Several cigarette butts and a palm print were among evidence taken from Mobleys vehicle. Mobleys wallet was found a week after the murder by a Department of Transportation employee mowing grass along Interstate 75 near the Florida-Georgia border. In 2004, the sheriffs office was notified that DNA off the cigarettes collected from Mobleys car in 1987 matched Carl Dauschs profile in a federal database.

Sumter sheriffs detectives have arrested and charged a Wildwood mother, Veronica L. Kirkland, 22, with Child Neglect of a 4 month old infant. The investigation was initiated on Dec. 11, after the child was admitted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment, where it was discovered the child was suffering from broken ribs and a broken leg.

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 22, 2011 The importance of giving R elishing the past and reliving the olden days really can be a great thing. As the economy turned sour, many families began to do some of the things that shaped family life decades ago sharing stories, board games and just spending time with one another. As we come into Christmas, theres so much to treasure, even in these times of economic stress. Theres family and friends, theres time to share. And theres a knowledge that this is a community always ready to step up and help their neighbors the Wallace and Higgins families are recent proof of that. With their home burned out and everything lost, the community stepped up to help them. Wallace now says the community has been so giving that she doesnt need anything else that she wants to give back For the community in general, there were giveaways from churches and businesses like the First Baptist Church of Bushnell, Church of the Fisherman in Lake Panasoffkee and Galaxy Home Solutions. Galaxy gathered donations from The Villages and the Sumter County Sheriffs Office to give away food, clothes and bikes. Hundreds of entire meals were given away in an effort to make sure every family had a Christmas dinner. Local businesses gave donations to fund gifts for the Shop with a Cop program and local law enforcement spent a morning Christmas shopping with 40 local children. Langley gave away hundreds and hundreds of gifts at the Laura Vickers party, Sumter Santa is on the move and Webster and Lake Panasoffkee followed up their parades with a visit to Santa that included a gift. In Bushnell, a group of local volunteers hosted Santas visit to the Christmas tree, where hundreds of children visited with Santa and took home some goodies. Local businesses took part. Thats just a sampling, theres more but you get the idea. There are sentences and books that could express, dissect and regress on the subject. But, as we move toward Dec. 25, Proverbs 18:16 says it very simply A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. Airpower: Looking forward to 2012As we prepare to embark on the adventures of a new year, we must take with us the memories of 2011. We must reflect on all the achievements and successes, disappointments and mishaps, and the warning signs that have been brought to the attention of our nation. Our U. S. military continues its strong role in global humanitarian missions, coming to the aid of a devastated Japan earlier in March. We delivered hope with our airlift capabilities and saved lives with our aeromedical evacuation. Weve had military accomplishments in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, including the killing of Osama bin Laden and many other top al-Qaeda leaders. Also, the support of the U. S. airpower was instrumental to the success of the end of Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafis regime. Weve begun the withdrawal of U. S. troops from Iraq, hoping to have them all home by the years official end. Weve seen the nation take a strong stand on behalf of our veterans, passing the bipartisan VOW to Hire Heroes Act that aims to lower the rate of unemployment among our nations veterans. But we cant forget the losses of devoted service members in the air and on the grounds of Afghanistan and Iraq. As asymmetric threats around the world continue to emerge, there comes an increased pressure to adequately provide for the defense of this nation and its allies. At the same time, our country is battling devastating budget cuts leaving senior military leaders with tough choices to make. With this in mind, 2012 could be a very pivotal year for the nation, its defense capabilities and the U. S. Air Force. Now that the Super Committee didnt turn out to be all that super, we have a year to get this right before sequestration kicks in. In other terms, we have a year to strategically plan what presence we want to display globally. We have a year to decide whats important to our defense, what we can afford to cut and what we can afford to disregard. But, when we debate potential cuts, we must not ignore warning signs. Just last week Chinese President Hu Jintao urged their navy to prepare for military combat, in the midst of growing regional tensions over maritime disputes. North Korea is claiming progression on a nuclear facility, U. S. relations with Pakistan continue to decline, prospects of Iran having nuclear weapons continue to increase. And we dont know what kind of government we leave behind in Iraq. Also, the effects of uprisings in the Arab Spring on U.S. interests have yet to be revealed. So when we deliberate on what capabilities we need, these budget cuts must be made with a degree of caution. Yes, the nation is in economic hard times and budget cuts must be made. I dont believe defense should necessarily be exempt from those cuts. But, precautions must be made. Dont eliminate or neglect capabilities vital to this nations defense and prosperity. Our budget must reflect realistic priorities. The reality is that warfare is changing. Traditional land and sea power are joined with irreplaceable air power and increasing importance in the cyber domain. So as the New Year starts, we must keep our eyes open. We failed in the 1930s to heed the warnings of Billy Mitchell about Japan and thought Hitlers book, Mein Kampf, a joke. Weve been getting warning signs now from adversaries abroad, so lets make sure we heed them this time as we reshape our defense.

DHSMV warns customers about unnecessary fees T he Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has issued a warning to its customers about deceptive websites that lure people into paying a fee to access DHSMVs online motorist services. The official-looking websites require their customers to pay a surcharge for their assistance. DHSMV does not require a surcharge for any of its websites www.GoRenew.com and www.flhsmv.gov and others. The Department posts fees on www.flhsmv.gov. The way the scheme works is quite simple: the owners or creators of the misleading websites have paid a fee to search engine companies to ensure their links are at the top of the webpage when Internet users search for DHSMVs online services website, www.GoRenew.com. When customers go to the websites, they are asked to for a name, contact information and credit card information, and then are charged just to get to DHSMVs websites. To say the websites are misleading is an understatement, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie Jones. They provide small disclaimers that state they are not affiliated with the Department and then proceed to charge customers anywhere from $25 to $50. It is an unbelievable racket. DHSMV officials say they are disappointed and disgusted that any entity would attempt such a scheme. However, the websites add a disclaimer that they are not affiliated with the Department or government of any kind, so what they are doing technically is legal. The Department wants to arm our customers with information about these illusive websites so they are not duped into paying unnecessary fees of any kind, Jones added. The websites are legal, but unethical. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

chance to get up and learn some of the dances. Tables were filled with red cedar and grapevine branches, holly berries and leaves, hickory nuts and acorns and moss. There was corn husks, tin cans filled with ice and melted wax. Guests had the chance to make live wreaths from the greenery, nuts and moss, dolls from the corn husks and luminaries from the tin cans. They even tried their hand at candle-making, creating long tapirs from dipped wax. While the entire experiences was praised, the added bonus? Aside from the $3 per car fee, everything was free. Folks took home wreaths to adorn front doors and luminaries to light a welcome. There was apple cider warming in a 100-year-old kettle over the fire and popcorn cooking just above the flame. Things went really well. People were just extremely happy, Whiting said. He was also pleased with the number of volunteers to make the event happen. The park schedule continues to grow with car shows and old art classes, all for a price the community can afford. Next up: Dades Battle Reenactment is next up with a per person fee, but there are several other dates that go back to the $3 a carload fee. The reenactment is on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 7 and 8 and is $5 per person and under six years old free. On the weekend of the reenactment, an overload of parking requires the Dade Battlefield Society to rent additional property for parking, so there will be a $2 per vehicle parking fee to help cover that expense. January: On Jan. 14th were having a winter bird walk from 10 a.m. to noon, Whiting said. The participants will be on a walk to identify the various species on the park property. Following that, therell be a Preparation of Wild Edibles Workshop. The workshop is limited to 98 people. On Jan. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. therell be a Pine needle basket class. That class is limited to 30, so make reservations early. On Jan. 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. theyre having a Geo-caching Workshop. Class is limited to 50. In Feb. they kick off the month with a live birds of prey show performed by birds from the Homosassa Wildlife Park. That show is from 10 a.m. to noon on Feb. 8 and limited to 98 people.

The City of Bushnell held the 7th annual program this year. The Childrens Home Society, who works with the Florida Department of Children and Families, provided the names of 50 children in need this Christmas season. This organization provides a safe harbor for children and helps to reverse crisis situations within family units. Childrens Home Society provides treatment for developmentally disabled children, foster care, adoption, group homes, child abuse prevention, emergency shelters and case management. The Grant a Christmas Wish program was a huge success! The city was overwhelmed with the generosity of this community and the staff here at the city; there were so many wonderful toys and childrens clothing brought in for the children. The citizens of this community came with bags of toys and open hearts, and this program resulted in providing Christmas gifts to over 70 children, not just the original 50 names on the tree. The City of Bushnell would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all who helped support the 2011 Grant a Christmas Wish program, and we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 22, 2011, P AGE 7 Permit approved for Panasoffkee land About 600 acres in Lake Panasoffkee could become home to a public trap and skeet range or a police training facility. Last week, the County Commission unanimously approved a major special use permit for the acreage off County Road 482S, near Interstate 75. The land could also be used as a future site for a wastewater treatment plant. Commissioners unanimously approved the permit following a lengthy discussion during a public hearing. While the board supported the proposal, several residents voiced concerns about the countys plan for the land. Glenn and Valerie King, residents of neighboring Brooks Park Subdivision, voiced a number of concerns and at one point Mrs. King asked the board to place a moratorium on making any decision about its potential uses. The Kings told board members that they have concerns about bullets being fired near their home if a shooting range is allowed. This places my home and the lives of my family in the direct range of fire, Glenn King told the board. We enjoy outdoor activities and I believe we would have to resort to staying indoors, being prisoners in our home. The Kings also said they are concerned for the safety of school children in the area and the increase in traffic that development would create. Mrs. King asked commissioners, Would you want this traffic in front of your door? While King said such shooting ranges dont serve the general public but rather tend to be used for the wealthy, several commissioners said they have received comments from people of various economic backgrounds interested in a shooting range. A substantial number of people have said that a range would be great, theres nothing like it available now, Commissioner Garry Breeden said. Commissioner Doug Gilpin said he supported the idea as long it was developed by a private entity and didnt involve public money. Many people throughout the county have expressed an interest and it could be a tourist development opportunity. The land was transferred to the county in 2009 in an agreement with the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The agreement stipulates that the land, known as the Lake Panasoffkee Spoil Site, could be used as a public shooting range. It also stipulates that the land must be used to serve the public benefit. The water district determined that the acreage may be used for a public trap and skeet range, public shooting range and a police training facility. It also states that a portion of the land could be used for the treatment of wastewater or discharge of reclaimed water. The zoning board, earlier this month, recommended approval of the permit and added several stipulations. The board wants the county to install a natural buffer on the northern berm of the property to cut down on noise and it also wants the county to continue to seek alternative access to the property that would be less intrusive to neighboring residents. Other approved restrictions require that any use of the land be limited to daylight hours only, County Road 482S would be improved for increased traffic, traffic could only increase by 5 percent and that any firing range would have to be secured with proper signage. B OB R EICHMAN Editor Students from Webster Elementary School found their own way to honor veterans on Veterans Day. Teacher Sherry Remis said a request was made that students create thankyou cards for veterans. Remis said she told teachers about her desire to give cards made by our students to Veterans at the Florida National Cemetery. I have been doing this for the past few years and have had a little more participation each year. She said she was very happy to see the number of teachers who participated this year. Teachers from kindergarten to fifth grade took the time to have their students make wonderful cards, telling veterans how thankful they were for their service. Some were very colorful, some short, some long, but all were from the hearts of children. On Friday, Remis and her family attended the services at the Florida National Cemetery and handed out 304 cards made by the students. Remis said many of the veterans expressed their gratitude for the cards. Some cried over the thoughtfulness of the act. What a blessing to be able to give back to those who risked so much for our country and people. Some of the veterans were from the Florida Buccaneers Chapter of the Special Military Active-Retired Travel Club (SMART). A group of active and retired military members who enjoy recreational vehicles. Dale Hertzfeld is shown with one of the cards made by Webster Elementary students. The cards were an expression of thanks from the students for the veterans. A close-up of one of the cards and its message.

Wildwood hoop boys struggle in season The Wildwood High boys basketball team has struggled early in the season on the way to an 0-6 start. They played Sumter County archrival South Sumter in Leesburg Lake Sumter Tournament Saturday and lost 69-50. Anfernee Martin had 12 points to lead the Wildcats. South Sumter has a pretty nice team, said Wildwood High head basketball coach Von Moreland. They lost in triple overtime in their first game and then they beat East Ridge. They had a pretty good team. They have size, some guys who can shoot the ball. They have Shawn Baker who runs the point and hes pretty tough. Moreland says his team needs experience and consistency. Were young and we have had a couple of games that could have gone our way but they didnt, the coach said. We could be 3-3. We just didnt get it done. Martin is important to the Wildcats. Anfernee is a senior, the coach said. He had a really good game against South Sumter. He hit some shots. Trey Jones is averaging 12 points per game. He is a sophomore and is 5-11. Dionte Pew is averaging around 10 points per game. He is a ninth grader. He is about 5-11. One big guy is Cameron Graham, 6-3 and a senior. He leads the team in rebounds and blocked shots. Danzell Williams is 6-2 and a senior. He is one of the leaders on the team. He plays inside. He is a big body. He is capable of hitting some shots. In the Leesburg tournament, Donte Johnson, a sophomore, had a real good tournament. He had 17 against Umatilla and was named to the All Tournament team. The Wildcats were to play Ocala St. Johns Lutheran at home Tuesday. Results were not available at press time. Wildwood will play in a Christmas Tournament in Eustis Dec. 28-30. We do have a few seniors, the coach said/ I think a big part of it is the ones we need to be scorers are our younger guys. We are not real consistent right now.

P AGE 8 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 22, 2011 Some things fishy Report by Donna and Steve Lind Tracys Point Fishing Report, Lake Panasoffkee news and tournament results for week ending Dec. 18 Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 134 Anglers Bass Fishing 115 Bass caught 186 Bass Released 173 Crappie caught 95 On Tuesday of last week, Dec. 13, Tracys Point Fishing Lodge hosted the Old Tarts Bass club to be a member you must be 55 years or older. There were 15 boats entered into the tournament and these guys had a blast. Weigh in was at 1 p.m. and while there were no lunkers, there were quite a few smaller fish caught. Tournament results are show in photos. Now, shifting from the bass tournament to some pretty cool stuff, earlier this year (January) Mark Marcantoni, after 20 minutes of fishing out of Tracys Point Fishing Lodge landed a lunker weighing in at 12 lbs 6 ozs on a Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver made the national publication of Bassmasters magazine Lunker Club. This is great exposure nationally for Lake Panasoffkee as well as Sumter County. As the seasons change, so does fishing techniques. At Tracys Point we host many long term customers such as Bobby Bare who does nothing but wild shiner fishing during January and February. Bobby will be staying the month of March this year as well as he must leave for Norway the later part of January for a 2 week gig. I thought I would provide you with a few tips on wild shiner fishing as follows: Looking for a big fish technique in bass fishing? Feed them natures candy, wild shiners or shad are the most productive and efficient way of catching trophy size bass. Take these steps in to consideration and make this work for you. Properly Handling of the Bait Handling of the livebait can be very important. One of the key items is water temperature, it should make slow changes, if any, from the time shiners are placed in live well, until they reach destination to be fished. Plenty of oxygen and aeration must be provided also. Bass rarely hit bait that can not escape from them, although there are times they will. If your bait is dying after only a few minutes on the hook, check the water temperature difference between the lake and your live well. Hooking of the Live Bait Shiners and shad live longer if hooked properly, one option is to hook them through the bottom lip, then through the nostril. Care must be taken not to hit between the nostril, this is where there brain is located. Careful not to break the neck of the bait, when slipping the hook upper ward pass the bottom jaw look for the small holes (nostrils) once located hook should penetrate with very little pressure. This technique makes the shiner swim in a downward motion, and works great for trolling. Hooking in the dorsal fin will make the bait swim up and away from the line or bobber, thus creating more action, but the bait will wear down much quicker and die sooner, so wait until you are anchored to try this technique. You can hook the shiner in front or behind the dorsal fin. Each method allows the shiners to be steered under, over and around vegetation to exact points. Bait Presentation When casting live bait, remember the object is to get them to the fish in perfect condition. Underhand pitching or side arm casting prevent hard impact with the water, thus helps to keep all the scales intact. Your cast or pitch should more of a lob then a cast. Scales that are knocked off leave white spots on your bait that can be seen under water as well as makes your bait weak. Take the time to hit your target the first time without repeated casts. Just remember you are not fishing with artificial bait, so let the shiner sit and work for you, do not try to work it. Bobbers, no Balloons Keep the bobbers as small as you can, large enough to keep up with where and what your shiner is doing. Two, three or four foot depth in most lakes are good to keep free movement of your shiner. As far as bobbers vs. balloons, just stop using the balloons. Even if you saw Roland Martin using them on TV, it does not make it right. The balloons in most case pop, come untied or break off, either way its really bad for the environment and the fish. Some say bobber color matters, personally I like red and white. Free lining works seems to be popular on Lake Panasoffkee, its great in running water or for trolling. Carolina rigging in running water will normally blow your mind, it requires constant contact with weight in order to distinguish hits. Depending on the water speed, 1 oz. weight with 3 to 4 foot leaders. It also works better in deep water or high skies days when fish do not want to come up. Our all time favorite still has to be the drop shot rig. In most cases you are fishing grass mats, grass lines or some kind of structure. The drop shot rig allows you to position your bait in a specific location and not have the shiner swim out of the strike zone. Anchoring Basics Always check wind direction! If you know where the fish are, be sure to set the boat up properly first time around in order not to spook them. We use two methods of anchoring. One is using covenantal anchors, one on the rear with another off the bow. Have adequate rope and heavy enough anchors to hold. Scope, scope and more scope, the magic to getting the anchors to grab is having enough rope out. A good rule of thumb is three times the depth. Four feet deep, let out 12 ft of rope for each anchor. The other option for anchors are to use poles instead of anchors. Yes, thats right PVC poles, in most Florida lakes poles can be used and there always areas that you can not use them, but day in and day out there easier on your back and a lot less messy. Hook Setting Technique Most people tend to wait too long and set the hook to hard. It is true women in the boat tend to prove that the strength of the hook set is not the most important, often good skills are better. Mono fishing line will stretch, so the most important thing to do is retrieve all slack until you have made contact with fish, do not let the fish feel you reeling. With the rod tip down set the hook over head, while maintaining pressure with a bent rod all the way in keeping hook firmly in place. Good luck and good fishin! Bill Burns came in 2nd place with a nail biting 4.1 lbs Gary Poegoemoeller is shown as the boats pull in for their 3 p.m. weigh in on Tuesday again, it was a very windy day and there just werent any big fish brought in. It happens its called fishin, but everyone had a blast, and as you will see from next weeks report, the fish that were caught today (Dec. 18) in the Citrus Bassmasters tournament were some nice fish I will include their photos in next weeks report. I thought I would include a photo of the Old Tarts Bass Club as I said they are truly a great bunch of guys. Mark stopped by and fished with us earlier this week and didnt do as well. He is shown with a 2.3 pounder. Terry and Chip Carter took 1st place with a whopping 5.2 lbs., 3 fish.
