Bass Fishing & Toys for Tots
On Saturday, November 14 TBF of South Carolina hosted our 6th annual “Mr. Lake Murray” open bass tournament. This year we decided to do something a little different. We seem to be getting later in the year with this event, closer to the holidays. So this year we teamed up with the U.S. Marines “Toys for Tots” program. Each angler was asked to bring a new unwrapped toy to registration that morning or make a cash donation. Our anglers came through for us showing their generosity. Over $350 was raised along with a good pile of toys. It’s always a great feeling to be able to give something back to our community and be able to show that our organization is about more than just fishing. As far as the fishing, Lake Murray did not disappoint either. The winning team of Neil and Tim Huffstefler brought in a 5 bass limit weighing 22.75 lbs, which included the Big Bass of the tournament at 6.34 lbs. We at TBF of South Carolina look forward to working with our Marines again next year and hope to do more for our armed forces and community in the future.
