Fishing in a steady, icy rainfall, Don Knudsen caught only a single fish during the Loveland Fishing Club's annual tournament Wednesday, but the 17 1/4-inch largemouth earned him bragging rights, $25 and his name on the club's rotating trophy as top angler.
John Gwinnup also earned $25with the largest non-bass of the day, an 8-inch crappie.
Temperatures hovered around 50 degrees throughout the morning, but we had a strong turnout and a great time at Swift Ponds, as guests of Colorado Youth Outdoors.
