|My boater Adam had a good day getting 3rd Place and Big Bass 4.15lbs|
We got on the "juice" immediately in the morning. On my 3rd cast I got a big fish, but it was the wrong kind.
We headed to our second spot and got nothing. Then we went to run some docks. Adam got his limit fish and I missed a couple bites on a Zoom Fluke. Adam caught his first cull and I got a 10" bass and another small pike.
We went back to our first spot and I got a 14" bass on the Crawtube. I think I got another pike as well. Adam got a couple more fish. We went to another spot and Adam caught 3 or 4 and I got nothing. Next we headed out of Poole Bay and went to Salter Bay but that was a bust. Next we went to Sugar Bay where I got a couple of 13 inchers on a brown/green pumpkin Crawtube along with a non-keeper and a pike. We went to 1 more spot in Sugar then headed to the river. The river turned out to be a bust and we headed out of there stopping to fish some slop in Jay Gould. I finally got a good bass on a Horny Toad (15.5"). I ended up missing a couple more on poor hooksets. Adam got 3 or 4 more bass.
Next we headed back to our starting spot and I got my limit fish (15.5") on the brown/g.p. Crawtube. I was relieved to get my limit. I also culled my first fish of the day with a 14" fish. Next we headed way down to the bottom of Sherry Arm to fish slop. Adam picked up a few fish on a frog and I missed my first bite. Finally I got one on a Zoom Horny Toad that went 15.25". I think I missed one more and Adam got a couple more. We ran back up to Sugar Bay for 20 minutes than fished the last 10 minutes in Tioga Bay where I caught a dink pike to end the day.
My weight was 10-15 and got me 19th Place. Adam's 16-6 got him 3rd Place. 1st Place was Chuck Johansen who was fishing by himself with 19-1. Apparently he was fishing docks.
I should have had over 12lbs easy, but my leg was just to much of an issue.
