The retirees fished Lake Norman last with David O’Shields and J R Henry taking the win with 8.90. They also had big bass with a 3.10 largemouth. Ronnie Humphries brought in 7.45 and claimed second and third with 5.80 was John Black and Roger McNeilly.
Timing is everything. Have you ever just felt like you were out of sync with what was going on in the woods or on the water? Sometimes it seems that on the days that you can go fishing, the weather is terrible or the fish are uncooperative.
Congratulations to the 1997 Rutherford Rumble Team, coached by Richey Barkley. The soccer team had a great season. They went 8-0 in the regular season and placed second in their division at the Norcross Nike Cup in Atlanta, GA.
