June 9th, 2012 Lake ShaferÖ The third event for the Anglerís Choice region three Indiana trail was held on Lake Shafer June 9th, 2012. For the first time this year a tournament was going to be held with very warm conditions and the summer recreational season well under way. Lake Shafer can be a very tough place to fish once the summer season has started, but sixteen teams rolled into Indiana Beach Campground to participate in the event. Congratulations to Jim McWhirter and Rod Coffing for taking first place in this event. Jim and Rod were able to bring in a very respectable limit that weighed 11.93 pounds. This is Jim and Rodís first win of the season. In second place was the team of Dusty and Brian Robinson. Dusty and Brian were also able to bring in a nice limit that weighed 11.2 pounds. With three solid tournaments, Dusty and Brian have taken over the lead in the Anglerís of the Year points lead. It is very early in the season, but Dusty and Brian have positioned themselves to make a run at the coveted title. Congratulations on a great day and awesome start to your season guys! In third place was the team of Don Amsden and Ed Oilar. Don and Ed also brought in a limit that topped the eleven pound mark, weighing in at 11.19, just getting nipped out of second. Don and Ed were also able to bring in the biggest bass of the day, a beautiful 4.98 pound largemouth. Congratulations on an awesome fish and a great day guys! Rounding out the top five were the teams of Arthur Kerns and Walter Kerns and Jim Han and Wade Cohagen. Both teams were able to bring in a five bass limit that weighed 10.79 pounds and 10.68 pounds respectively.
