August 2, 2014 marked the beginning of the third annual bass fishing tournament hosted by the Murray Rotary club. It was a beautiful day for the tournament. Starting around 4 a.m., Rotary volunteers (see bottom pic) helped man the Tournament from 5:30 a.m. until after the weigh-in near mid-afternoon.

All proceeds will be going to the Murray Rotary Foundation for family and children. Tournament director Rotarian, Dennis Heskett said, "this year was a huge success with the tournament raising over $11,000 for the Murray Rotary Foundation."

Pictured are tournament winners Terry Bolton and Dan Morehead with a catch of 22.8 pounds. Also pictured is the big bass winner Jay Roth and Ian Heskett with a 6.1 pounder. Sam Henry and Rotarian Bernie Prince brought in second largest bass of the day weighing 5.7 pounds.

Below are the results and money winners of this year’s tournament:
