Comments:  Due to forecasts for bad weather, only 26 teams entered this year's tournament.  Those predictions turned out be incorrect as there was only a brief shower just prior to the weigh-in and another during the day.  A total of 45 bass were weighed in for 84.45 lbs.  This was the first time hosting this tournament since the passing of tournament director Steve Steinmetz.  His daughter Sheryl attended and helped out with the award presentations and wrote a tribute to her father, fishing & the SJBCA, which was read by Rashawn Lewis.  The SJBCA would like to thank all of the participants, sponsors and volunteers for supporting our fundraiser.
