                      ANOTHER RECORD SETTING DAY AT THE LAKE ERIE GOLD SERIES LLC TEAM TOURNAMENT
















                                       IF THE LAST GOLD SERIES EVENT WASN'T EXCITING ENOUGH FOR GOLD SERIES RECORDS BEING BROKEN, THE AUGUST 8, 2004 GOLD SERIES #3 WAS NOT TO BE UPSTAGED. AT THIS EVENT TWO RECORDS WERE BROKEN YET AGAIN. FIRST WAS THE STELLAR PERFORMANCE TURNED IN BY THE TEAM OF ERIC PESSELL AND RON SHARP. THIS TEAM BROUGHT IN A HUGE FIVE FISH LIMIT OF SMALLMOUTH BASS THAT WEIGHED IN AT 22.17 POUNDS, A NEW FIVE FISH LIMIT RECORD FOR THE LAKE ERIE GOLD SERIES. THAT BAG WAS NOT GOING TO BE OUT DONE ON THIS DAY. THE FIRST PLACE VICTORY EARNED THE TEAM A CHECK FOR $870.00 DOLLARS AND AROUND $300.00 DOLLARS IN MERCHANDISE. ERIC PESSELL WAS A SUBSTITE FOR RON SHARP'S NORMAL PARTNER SHAWN BOGGS, GOOD JOB ERIC AND RON.
                         THE OTHER RECORD SET AT THE AUGUST 8, 2004 LAKE ERIE GOLD SERIES LLC EVENT WAS THE LARGEST BASS EVER WEIGHED IN AT A GOLD SERIES EVENT. THE TEAM OF JACK BROWN AND LES MEIJER BROUGHT IN A HUGE SMALLMOUTH THAT WEIGHED 5.79 POUNDS. THAT SECURED THE NEW GOLD SERIES RECORD AND BIG BASS OF THE TOURNAMENT, WHICH WAS WORTH $360.00 DOLLARS, A PAIR OF SOLAR BAT SUN GLASSES, A GANDER MOUNTAIN T-SHIRT, AND A GANDER MOUNTAIN HAT. IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH, JACK AND LES JUST WENT AHEAD AND TOOK SECOND PLACE HONORS FOR THE TOURNAMENT TOO. THERE FIVE FISH LIMIT WEIGHED 19.54 POUNDS, AND EARNED THEM A CHECK FOR $350.00, AND AROUND $100.00 DOLLARS IN MERCHANDISE. IN TOTAL THIS TEAM HAD A PAYDAY OF AROUND $1000.00 DOLLARS IN CASH AND MERCHANDISE, A NICE DAYS WORK. 

                                         THE THIRD PLACE TEAM WAS A TEAM THAT TOOK SECOND PLACE AT THAT LAST GOLD SERIES EVENT AND A TEAM THAT HAS MOVED INTO A THIRD PLACE TIE FOR THE LAKE ERIE GOLD SERIES LLC POINTS CHAMPIONSHIP RACE FOR 2004. GEORGE AND MELODY BOSTON SHOW AGAIN WHAT A GREAT TEAM THEY ARE BY BRINGING IN A BAG OF BASS WEIGHING 19.16 POUNDS, GOOD ENOUGH AGAIN FOR A THIRD PLACE FINISH. GEORGE AND MELODY EARNED A CHECK FOR $250.00 AND SOME PHOENIX TUBES.
                         FOURTH PLACE WENT TO THE TEAM OF BRIAN AND JOHN CLARK, THIS TEAMS FIVE FISH LIMIT WEIGHED IN AT 18.12 POUNDS AND EARNED THEM A CHECK FOR $150.00 DOLLARS. MORE IMPORTANTLY BRIAN AND JOHN MOVED INTO THE FIRST PLACE SPOT FOR THE POINTS CHAMPIONSHIP RACE. THE POINTS RACE WILL BE A SHOOT OUT AT THE FINAL REGULAR SEASON EVENT ON SEPTEMBER 19, 2004, TUNE IN TO SEE WHO CAN WALK AWAY WITH THE 2004 POINTS CHAMPIONSHIP.
                           THE OTHER MONEY WINNERS AT LAKE ERIE #3 WERE; FIFTH PLACE, RON SHEPHERD AND TONY SEALS $100.00, SIXTH PLACE DOUG SCHLETT AND DEL SMITH $75.00, AND IN SEVENTH PLACE JOHN DOUGLAS AND DAN CRAMER $50.00 RESPECTIVELY.
                          A STORY THAT UNFOLDED AT THIS TOURNAMENT NEEDS TO BE TOLD, DAVID SCALES CAME TO THE GOLD SERIES TOURNAMENT THIS MORNING WITH A BROKEN BOAT THAT WAS OUT OF COMISSION FROM FISHING A BFL TOURNAMENT THE DAY BEFORE. DAVID BROUGHT HIS SON PAUL, AROUND 12 YEARS OLD TO THE TOURNAMENT (WHO BY THE WAY HAS BEEN HIS PARTNER IN THE LAST 2 SEASONS OF GOLD SERIES TOURNAMENTS), AND SAID TO THE TOURNAMENT CREW OF THE GOLD SERIES  "I AM STILL FISHING, EVEN WITH A BROKEN BOAT". HE ALSO SAID WHICH WAS THE MOST COMPELLING PART OF THE WHOLE STORY " I AM NOT A QUITTER, JUST BECAUSE EVERYTHING DOESN'T GO YOUR WAY, THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU QUIT. I AM NOT A QUITTER, AND I AM NOT GOING TO TEACH MY SON TO BE A QUITTER EITHER". I THOUGHT THIS WAS A GREAT MESSAGE TO ALL OF US, DAVID AND PAUL, I APPLAUED YOU! THIS SHOWS YOU WHAT GREAT PEOPLE COME AND FISH THE LAKE ERIE GOLD SERIES, AND THE GOLD SERIES WANTS TO THANK ALL THE ANGLERS WHO PARTICIPATE.
                          BELOW ARE THE RESULTS OF HOW THE REST OF THE TEAMS FAIRED AT LAKE ERIE #3.
