The weather cooperated, along with the fish at the first annual Battle of the Pines fishing tournament held last weekend.

"A lot of fish were caught and everyone had a good time," Organizer Craig Swanson said. "We were worried about sunburn rather than rain and clouds."


39 teams participated and between both Pine lakes there was room for plenty more, while keeping lake traffic acceptable for area residents.
