HERSEY -- Dave Fowler hasn’t fished in the Teardrop Bass Tournament for many years but the Hersey resident won’t soon forget memories of the competition that included individuals from such counties as Lake, Osceola, Mason and Manistee.
“It was a great bunch of guys,” he said. “It was competitive but everyone was willing to share their secrets. If you broke down, you didn’t have to worry about people driving by and leaving you there,” Fowler recalled. “Generally speaking, bass fishermen have good equipment. If something happened, when I couldn’t pump water in when the little hose to the livewell broke, one of the other competitors put my fish in his livewell to keep them alive.
