2007 UBCS was hosted this year by the Twin Cities Team Club at our local Lake Bistineau. Fishing was tough as it can be on this lake. Seams like those numerous 3lb to 5lb bass this lake is known for just kinda shut down.
With the never ending Cypress trees and winding non marked lake channel I think Lock Jaw did a fantastic job finding fish and giving us a good showing. On the morning of the 16th with the sun fighting it's way through the black sky Lock Jaw got the word to head out. In typical Lock Jaw fashion having more guts then brains all but one team took off straight through the woods not even trying to follow the channel. TCTC and I mean everyone of us stood on the dock with our jaws hanging open
and waiting for the fiery crash that thank god never came.
The Saturday weigh-in was held at 3pm and all but 3 teams two from TCTC and one from Lock Jaw brought fish to the scales.
The standings are as follows.
1st Mark & Josh - 14.75 - TCTC
2nd Mike & Laurie - 11.32 - TCTC

Top 10 fish from each team brought day one to an end. TCTC came out on top with 28.91lbs and Lock Jaw with 16.91.
Sunday the 17th folks were a bit slower to show up to the launch
most talked about the heat from day one but some of us just knew a little better one when to set down the cold
Blast of at safe light this time TCTC went 1st and showed Lock Jaw where the channel started
Weigh-in was to be held at noon to give Lock Jaw some day light to make the long drive home. To tell the truth after day one I just didn't know where to start for sure, but you can't just through out a pattern that has held up for about 2 months so rather then try to start all over I just picked like type spots that I haven't fished in a while. Worked good enough to get a limit and even culled up twice. The total weights for day two are listed below.

2nd Shannon & Kim - 8.13 - Lock Jaw
