Big Arbuckle stringer

Oklahoma's bass tournament season started with a bang last weekend when two Calera anglers boated a five-limit, 42-pound bag in the Backyard Bassin' Tournament on Arbuckle Lake.

Jeff Reynolds and partner Johnny Thompson weighed in five fish for a total of 42.04 pounds, providing more proof that Arbuckle is the best bass fishing lake in the state.

The biggest of the stringer was a nine-pounder and smallest was a six.

The second place team weighed in 28.42 pounds and included a 6.54-pound smallmouth bass. Anglers in the tournament also produced two 10-pounders and at least a dozen fish that weighed more than 8 pounds, tournament officials said.

Boating class begins Feb. 7

The Oklahoma City Sail and Power Squadron will hold a five-week boating class beginning Feb. 7 at the Oklahoma City Fire Training Center, 850 N. Portland.

The class will run for five consecutive Thursday evenings, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., concluding March. 7. The course is National Association of State Boating Law Administrators approved, meaning its meet the education and licensing requirements of most states, including Oklahoma, and qualifies graduates for insurance discounts.
