Another 3 day report *PICS*

Recommended Posts

This 3 day report starts a week ago. Last wednesday, Kelli and I fished our 2nd of 4 tournaments in our Bass Pro Employee series. This stop was at Rice Lake. Rice and I.... we dont really see eye to eye. If I could fight Rice Lake, I'd totally do it. Nonetheless, I had to fish it. I've only been there 3 times, where everyone else in the tourney fish it like every weekend lol. Fishin for points here.

 

Started off alright with a 2 pounder on the 3rd cast, then struggled hard the rest of the day. Managed one almost 4 pounds on the jig. Fished our butts off for 10.4 pounds and finished 8th. Frustrating, but cant wait for Balsam and Simcoe next on our list!

I needed to catch some fish and get my confidence back up. My cousin Brent has a Junior Bassmasters tournament coming up on Bass Lake in a couple weeks, so I figured we'd go out there, I'd catch lots of fish and teach him a thing or two. It worked, and it felt nice. We caught about 30 fish in 4 hours. No tanks, but lots of solid fish. Here's to hoping he can get em in a couple weeks time. All fish on senkos and flippin craws.

Today, I fished a club tournament on Lake Eugenia. The water temp is still only 71 degrees, and I'm having a hard time figuring the fish out on some of these lakes. I'm catching fish, but not consistant big fish. Not tournament winners. My non-boater smashed them on the dropshot, and I flipped my way to a dissapointing day. Swung for the fences and struck out... kinda. I won big fish prize for the tourney, but the rest of my bag sucked. Lucky he played it safe and kept us in the running for a 3rd place finish. My fish came on a 5 inch craw flipping to wood and weeds in 4-12 feet of water. HE fished a ring fry on a dropshot in the deeper water.

I have been humbled the past couple weeks, and I seek redemption!!! Stay tuned.
