Well guys and gals, it was a bit tougher than last month. We fished at M & M Campground in Clearlake Oaks but not at our favorite swims. We were on the lake side at the west end of the campground instead of our favorites at the east end.  As usual Keith Thompson caught the biggest and the most. Carper Rick finally made it to 2nd place and was only 6 ounces behind Keith's total weight. Steve Gibbons fell to his all time low of 4th place. I finished at the bottom as usual. Most of the fish were caught with hair/bolt rigs baited with maize, boilies or bread dough.

The final scores are below:
