The 2021 June Senior Tournament at Lake Spence
June fishing at Lake Spence came after moving the original tournament from Lake Hubbard to Spence because of heavy rains and the threat of floating debris in Lake Hubbard. We wanted to err on the side of caution and safety. Early Tuesday morning in the Abilene area, north and east of the city, we were again subject to heavy rains, thunder, and lightning. Thank goodness the thunderstorms did not reach far enough west to Lake Spence to disrupt our day on the lake. At Lake Spence the day started off cloudy and gave way to hot sunshine and high humidity. We had 21 seniors fish the tournament and 18 of them weighing 50 fish for a total of 176.77 lbs and a 3.53 pound average. Jimmy Blair won 1st place with a three fish stringer of 17.93 lbs anchored with the big bass of the tournament at 7.81 lbs. Mike Pruitt won 2nd place with a three fish stringer weighing 17.12 pounds anchored with a 7.06 lb. bass. Randell Graham won third place with a three fish stringer weighing 17.10 lbs anchored with a 6.14 lb. bass.
