On and off rains have stirred the waters up at Claytor Lake, but they aren’t affecting the fishing at the Rockhouse Marina for their weekly Tuesday night tournament.  This week 23 boats took the challenge.

First place honors for the June 25 tournament went to Jason Adams and Todd Davis, who weighed in a five fish limit of 16.30 pounds.   Anthony Rife and Steven Brady took second place with 15.20 pounds.  The third place winner this week was Carson Rejzer and Mackensy Medlin with a 8.77 pound bag.

The big largemouth prize went to Anthony Rife and Steven Brady for their 4.67 pound catch.  Big smallmouth honors went to Tony Tickle and Randall Aldred for their 2.75 pounder.

The tournaments run from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., with a entry fee of $35 per boat per tournament.  There is also an optional big fish contest each week.

Only artificial lures are allowed, and only largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass will be weighed.  There is an 8 ounce penalty per dead fish at weigh-in.  There is a five fish per team limit each night, and there is a 12 inch size limit.  Any boat that brings in more than five fish to the scales will result in the culling of the largest fish first.  There is also a two pound penalty for bringing in a fish shorter than twelve inches.  All boats who enter must go through a boat safety check, and only two anglers are allowed per boat.
