It was not a good day for one of my favorite rods. Still I landed the 14" bass that broke my rod in two. The day sort of played out as expected for me, it was tough and every bite was at a premium. I only caught 3 bass all day, thankfully one of them was pretty good sized. I also caught 3 pike, a rock bass, and a dogfish. I missed a couple of other pike and possibly had a few other bass bites, but nothing for sure. Some of the guys caught them really well and multiple limits were weighed in. Unfortunately for my boater and I, both of our back up patterns were a bust, so basically we got all our fish from one area. I think I finished between 11th and 14th.
Full report when I know the official results.
