This is gonna be yet another fun day on my favorite lake , nothing like a day filled with RAIN , WIND , and chilly conditions ..tourney fishing 101 ~ Go Hard or Go Home !! :-)
I got my rain gear ready, see you there Dez.
Just got home and unpacked. Great tournament, thanks to the Hawg Hunters for putting this on. Weather held up all day with just a little wind in the afternoon. Fishing was fair for most it sounded like. Here's how the top 5 rounded out:
Chad, big fish was a largemouth at 5.99, very nice fish caught by Tyler Walker. We had 2 largies in our bag a 2lb and 3lb. Mark C had a whole bag of largemouth but I don't know his weight. There were 32 teams total that fished.
Chad Simon said:
Congrats Jaymee and Shawn! How many teams fished? How big of a factor were largemouth?
I was also quite suprised to see so many green fish. Tyler caught his largemouth while smallmouth fishing as did I. Out of the top 5 teams, there were only 3 largemouth total, interesting fact...
Good job Shawn on both days!
Mark and I actually caught our largemouth in an area we usually catch smallies in. He found that largemouth had been sitting in this area. So in a sense, we did target them. It helped with a 2 and 3 pounder. I caught a 5 1/4 there plus we caught several 2 1/2 lbers there in the club tourney the week before. One of those freak deals. We did fish a typical largemouth area last weekend and I caught one on my 2nd or 3rd cast that was 4 pounds. So they are scattered from shallow to deep water, but seem to be aggressive right now.
Hey Shawn you gonna buy the beer? I mean you got some extra cash now an all. Congrats on today!
Thanks guys! It was a fun weekend. And wanted to say thanks to all the guys that fished this weekend and supported Mary Bridge Childrens Hospital. Best attendance we have seen in years.
I think I was fishing too shallow for Smallies 15'-25' range with no success. I heard from a few people that said they were catching them in 35'-45' range. Is that normal for this time of year? Will they move up before winter? Did manage to catch a good largemouth in about 10' on a C rig chigger craw.
